Can Sarah Jessica Parker convincingly pull off being a frazzled working mom? Does Carrie Bradshaw spend way too much money on shoes?!

The Emmy winner is back on the big screen in I Don't Know How She Does It, based on the 2002 novel by Allison Pearson, playing a married-with-children-and-a-career gal who loves her job—and feels super guilty about it.

And, boy, are there a lot of men in her life.

We've got Greg Kinnear as her endlessly understanding (or is he?) and adorable hubby, Kelsey Grammer as the boss who's more than happy to accept "mammogram" as an excuse for lateness, Pierce Brosnan as the big-shot who everyone's trying to impress but ends up being the one to tell SJP that everything's going to be OK, and Seth Meyers as...

Well, what else? A smartass!

Christina Hendricks, Olivia Munn, Jessica Szohr and Jane Curtin add to the film's feminine mystique, as well.

If you like your Parker sans kids and taking way more risks when it comes to fashion, there are always six—and only six—seasons' worth of Sex and the City repeats.

But if you want an earnest and funny portrayal of a New Yorker who deserves the corner office and cries when she misses her son's first haircut, go check out Parker doing it the only way she knows how—with style.
