Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company announced today the Blu-ray and DVD release of the highly relatable romantic comedy, I DON’T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT, from director Douglas McGrath (Emma, Infamous) and producer Donna Gigliotti (The Reader, Let Me In). Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex and the City) leads a top-notch ensemble cast that includes Pierce Brosnan (Die Another Day), Greg Kinnear (Little Miss Sunshine), Christina Hendricks (“Mad Men”), Kelsey Grammer (“Boss”), Seth Meyers (“Saturday Night Live”), and Olivia Munn (“The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”). Based on Allison Pearson’s critically acclaimed bestseller, dubbed by Oprah Winfrey as “the national anthem of working mothers,” I DON’T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT heads to retail on January 3, 2012 for an SRP of $39.99 for the Blu-ray™ and $29.98 for the DVD
NBC’s ‘Moms & the City’ call I DON’T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT “a hilarious comedy about having it all” and “the perfect film for a girls night out!” The New York Daily News’ Elizabeth Weitzman describes the film as having “plenty of humor and poignancy”, while SHAPE magazine’s Karen Borsari calls it “hilarious!” Finally, New York Magazine’s David Edelstein proclaims, “Sarah Jessica Parker reminds you what an all-in, high-risk comic actress she can be.”
Trying to balance work and family is a non-stop juggling act for Kate Reddy (Sarah Jessica 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.
The I DON’T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT Blu-ray and DVD bonus features include a conversation with bestselling author, Allison Pearson. Note: Special features are subject to change.
