"I Don't Know How She Does It." But You Can. Win It.


It seems as if whenever someone wants a leading lady in a role that requires heavy voice over work to guide the story, everyone turns to Sarah Jessica Parker (heretofore referred to as SJP). Sure, she (kind of) made it work for six seasons, but did anyone really enjoy her narration? Or was it just kind of there? Be honest. Well, if you disagree with me and think I'm being overly critical of HBO's beloved glam series, Sex and the City, then you're going to love I Don't Know How She Does It, wherein SJP plays a mother, business woman, and wife who accomplishes more than any one person should ever be expected to. Hence, the title's expression of bewilderment.

If you're really curious to find out what it is she does and how she does so much of it, then you're in luck: we're giving away a copy on DVD. To find out how, just keep reading.

Trying to balance work and family is a non-stop juggling act for Kate Reddy (SarahJessica Parker).  As a determined Boston-based finance executive, she devotes her day to her job and her night to her adoring husband Richard (Greg Kinnear) and their two young children.  In between conference calls, meetings, deadlines, and her daughter’s school bake sale, Kate manages to survive on a daily basis.  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), a handsome executive whose unexpected emotional support becomes a source of refuge.
