Frenetic slapstick clich├ęs.

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.

What a candy-floss flop! "I REALLY don't know how she does it"! ...Sarah Jessica Parker, that is... Continuing to make these ridiculous movies, and flaunting them on her willy-nilly fans (mostly SEX AND THE CITY hangers-on) as semi-real-life comedies. She's an investment guru... juggling corporate male politics... marital woes... and private-children's school angst - all with aplomb?... Ahhhh - NO! Despite the movie's best efforts to deliver her unscathed to her adoring SATC audiences, I'm afraid the previously unflappable SJP, comes across as more tattered and torn than ever before. She's all-too-often quite ordinary looking in both her delivery of the part she's playing - and her personal demeanor. - a far cry from the stylish maven she once portrayed in SATC. I think li'l Reese Witherspoon would have knocked this role - right out of the ball-park, if she'd starred in it! But alas... we only have SJP... doing her best to remain relevant in the shark-pool of Hollywood... but failing miserably, here! p.s. Thank gawd for MAD MEN's Christina Hendricks as the all-too-worldly best friend... because the male leads in this piece of Fluff are ALL 'fluffer-nutters' too!
