We Got This Covered

This very typical romantic comedy flubs details repeatedly in order to reach the moments that it wants to reach.

The title could easily apply to star Sarah Jessica Parker, for how such a charmless actor has maintained such career longevity and popularity is a marvel.

KWQC-TV (Iowa)

A serviceable comedy about women who want to 'have it all,' 'I Don't Know How She Does It' takes a look at a working mother who faces the challenge of balancing her career and her family.

If you enjoyed Sex and the City, you'll like this funny, sassy and fast-paced melting pot of domestic and business chaos, where the key to juggling is throwing, not catching

The Standard

Too real to be escapist and too sitcom-ish to be realistic... not dramatic enough to be a drama, not comedic enough to be comedy....

There's nothing particular strong or telling about its comedy.

The Age (Australia)

The film uses its breezy comic tone to makes some raw points about the fidelity, motherhood and compromise.

Leigh Paatsch
Herald Sun (Australia)

This sappy, crappy and condescending chick flick has been slapped together for those wishing to bask in the cinematic afterglow of the ever-radiant Sarah Jessica Parker.

A good helping of amusingly sharp lines cannot save this uncomfortably odd beast.

MovieFIX

There is enough depth of drama to warrant a (short) TV series, but not a film.

What saves things from becoming entirely dreary is its cast ...

It ought to be easy to snark at this film, but the truth is it just left me feeling depressed. It's not how they do it that mystifies me, but why.

. . .the only possible way that it could have possibly had a happy resolution would have been if it had somehow turned into "Contagion" in the second half.

I Don't Know How She Does It is a lox -- and that may be an insult to smoked fish everywhere.

Sarah Jessica Parker's career no longer seems to involve acting so much as nurturing brand identity.
