We don't know why she does it
Based on Allison Pearson’s 2002 novel, the comedy follows the life of glamorous Kate Reddy (Parker), a high-flying NYC finance executive who, as the family breadwinner, is torn between career and family. Though the storyline has the potential to offer a unique portrait of the 21st-century working mom, don’t expect any original, useful or cliché-free conceptions. Though it’s redeemed somewhat by Parker’s unwavering performance, those of you hoping to see her play something different than her SATC character will be sorely disappointed.
