Movie Summary

Director:
Douglas McGrath
Released:
2011
Rating:
PG-13
Kate Reddy (Sarah Jessica Parker of SEX AND THE CITY FRANCHISE) is a finance executive who manages the ultimate balancing act between work and her adoring family. With the support of her best friend and fellow working mother Allison (Christina Hendricks of TV's MAD MEN), Kate generally manages to keep her out-of-work husband Richard (Greg Kinnear of LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE), two young children, and colleagues happy. But life gets difficult when she lands a lucrative new account that requires frequent travel, at the same time Richard receives a job offer he can't refuse. Further complicating matters are her ambitious, child-phobic junior associate Momo (Olivia Munn of TV's PERFECT COUPLES) and new business partner Jack (Pierce Brosnan of MAMMA MIA!, JAMES BOND FRANCHISE), who becomes an unexpected source of temptation. Based on the novel by Allison Pearson.
