I Don’t Know How She Does It Trailer: Sarah Jessica Parker Carries On

The future of the Sex and the City franchise remains in doubt, but until then, Sarah Jessica Parker is happy to give you the next best thing in I Don't Know How She Does It. Based on Allison Pearson's bestseller, the movie casts Parker as a high-powered moneymaker (so Mr. Big!) with an innocuous nice guy at home (so Miranda!) who frets that work keeps her from seeing her kids enough (so specifically Miranda in Sex and the City 2!), and narrates those big-city frustrations to the audience over gratuitous shots of skyscraper porn (so very Carrie). Can Parker, in fact, have it all? We don't know, but at least she has actors like Christina Hendricks, Seth Meyers, and Busy Phillips as backup. (We also suspect that in lieu of having it all, she'd easily settle for Sex and the City 2's $95 million domestic gross.)
