Sarah Jessica Parker brings her unique brand of slightly neurotic intensity to her role as a woman balancing a demanding career and home life. Adding to the complication is her new project with Pierce Brosnan, who starts signing his work emails "XO". Will Sarah consider infidelity? Will her husband realize emotional labor matters? Other movies have already covered similar relationships, but if you like Parker, you'll probably like her work here.

A Hallmark-type of movie maybe good for family viewing. The parents can learn empathy for each other. Your kids can learn what it's like to be working parents.

Frenetic slapstick clichés.

I like strong women but not narcissists. It seems like everything is all about her all the time. I don't like men like that either. She does head in the correct direction (more relaxed) I think the character is still too up tight and has poor values. A lot of ridiculous plot items that weren't really funny to me.

An enjoyable movie. A fairly realistic portrayal of the juggling act that mothers perform. Funny at times, heart-warming at times......made it seem well balanced. Very well acted I thought, too. A good message delivered at the end.

Interesting and funny.
Keeps the viewer glued to the screen.
Nicely illustrates the life of a busy upper-class mom.

Absolutely hilarious! It's a really good watch and I highly recommend it. SJP is really good and so is Pierce Bronson.

This one didnt really grab me. Old storyline, weak dialogue, just barely amusing.

Sarah Jessica Parker plays a frazzled working mom, who tries to juggle work, her kids and personal relationship with her husband. Its a cute movie, starting off very slowly, but comes on light and heart-warming like a cashmere sweater.
