"I Don't Know How She Does It" - book review and movie

The movie adaptation of I Don't Know How She Does It, by Allison Pearson, hits theaters on September 16th, and I will be seeing a screening of it on Thursday, so check back on the 16th for my review.

Meanwhile, I read the book that the movie is based on to see if I would like it, and it's hilarious. The main difference that I can see between the book and the movie is that the novel takes place in England, whereas I assume the movie will be taking place in the US, probably in New York, since Sarah Jessica Parker doesn't have an English accent in the trailer.

In the movie, we have:
Kate Reddy .... Sarah Jessica Parker
*Kate is the main character, a mom with two kids who also works 40+ hours a week as a hedge fund manager.

Richard .... Greg Kinnear
*Richard is Kate's husband, and works full-time as well as an architect.

Jack Abelhammer ... Pierce Brosnan
*Kate and Jack have an "email affair" of sorts. In the novel, he lives in NYC and she lives in London, but she's frequently in NYC for business.

Chris Bunce ... Seth Myers
*Coworker of Kate's and all around "prat."

Momo Hahn ... Olivia Munn
*24-year-old coworker of Kate's.

Paula ... Jessica Szohr
*Kate and Richard's nanny, also in her early 20's.

If the film is anywhere near as good as the book was, it should be a funny movie! Click here to see my review at my book blog, Books I Think You Should Read.
