I Don't Know How She Does It movie scene

Christina Hendricks (l.) and Sarah Jessica Parker talk it over in I Don't Know How She Does It.

Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex and the City) takes her New York-styled romantic comedy television persona to Boston for the romantic comedy movie I Don’t Know How She Does It.

Succeeding at balancing her work and her family, Boston-based finance executive Kate Reddy (Parker) devotes her day to her job and her night to her adoring husband Richard (Greg Kinnear, TV’s The Kennedys) and their two young children. But when she gets handed a major new account that will require frequent trips to New York, and Richard also wins the new job he’s been hoping for, both will be spreading themselves even thinner.  Complicating matters is Kate’s charming new business associate Jack Abelhammer (Pierce Brosnan, The Ghost Writer), a handsome executive whose unexpected emotional support becomes a source of refuge.

Based on Allison Pearson’s well-received novel, I Don’t Know How She Does It features an ensemble cast of TV-friendly performers that includes Christina Hendricks (TV’s Mad Men), Kelsey Grammer (TV’s Boss), Seth Meyers (TV’s Saturday Night Live), and Olivia Munn (TV’s The Daily Show).

The film proved to be a critical and commercial disappointment upon its wide release to U.S. theaters in September, ringing up a droopy $9.6 million at the box office.

Hmmmm…should Ms. Parker consider sticking to Sex and The City sequels when it comes to romantic comedies?

Here’s the trailer, which looks sorta bubbly if all-too-familiar:
