Chick Flick Humour...

I love chick flicks, from the good (The Devil Wears Prada) to the mediocre (Something Borrowed) to the truly awful (The Pirate Movie). They are sweet upbeat escapist fun.

After seeing the trailer for I Don't Know How She Does It, starring Sarah Jessica Parker, I thought that it looked like fun, even though it was yet another flick about a harried super-mom juggling a busy life. True, this is nothing new, I mean real women do it every day, and Diane Keaton did it in Baby Boom 25 years ago, but the flick looked like fun.

And I do like SJP, except for that wretched thing she did with Matthew McConaughey a few years ago.

Then I saw the movie poster and thought, hey, that is kind of a boring serious take on what should be a fun zingy movie.

Then I saw what The Huffington Post thought of the movie poster, and thought, wowza, well done!

Okay, the jury is out on the movie, but they sure do need better marketing...
