Sarah Jessica Parker and Pierce Brosnan star in this comedy about a working mother who, between the demands of her high flying job, her husband and her two children, pushes herself to do her best for everyone, but a promotion calls her priorities into question. With her architect husband (Greg Kinnear) out of work, Kate Reddy (Sarah Jessica Parker) brings home the bacon for her young family from her busy and stressful position in a financial firm, as well as coordinating the lives of her two children (Emma Rayne Lyle, Theodore and Julius Goldberg). The constant juggling takes its toll on many an occasion, but her best friend (Christina Hendricks), herself a working mother, is there to support Kate when she needs it. All seems to be going swimmingly, until Kate's boss (Kelsey Grammer) offers her a promotion involving interstate travel, her husband is offered a new job, and an important business associate (Pierce Brosnan) starts to make moves on her. With the wheels about to fall off, Kate is forced to assess what is really important to her, and make some difficult decisions.
