I Don’t Know How She Does It
15 September 2011
Excerpt: In the wake of Lauren Weisberger’s 2003 novel The Devil Wears Prada , the publishing world saw a dramatic boom in an already-extant subgenre of chick-lit: The swoony romance between a young, awkward New York ingénue and the bland Perfect Man who falls for her in spite of her copious faults, mostly because he doesn’t have enough personality or agency to engage with them.
Conclusion: I Don't Know How She Does It is an unimaginative, go-nowhere movie that offers no insight other than to show its audience that, yes, busy people do exist (who knew?). Flat characters, no direction, and a repetitive structure all add up to one of the worst movies of 2011, and maybe the year's most purposeless, which begs the question, just who is this movie's target audience?
