SARAH Jessica Parker is in her comfort zone for this New York-set froth about a high-flying career woman juggling responsibilities of work and family.

Based on the book by Welsh newspaper columnist and author Allison Pearson, this is a predictable mix of marital strife, winsome kids, zinging one-liners and cloying sentiment.

Essentially, McGrath's light-hearted confection is Sex, If I’m Not Too Tired After My Business Trip, In The City.

Parker makes all of the expected comic moves like discovering her child's breakfast cereal on a suit lapel before an important meeting and adjusting undergarments in front of a video conference camera.

There are also occasional quips such as; “Trying to be a man is a waste of a woman.“
