Kate Reddy (Sex and the City's Sarah Jessica Parker) devotes her days to her job with a Boston-based financial management firm. At night she goes home to her adoring, recently-downsized architect husband Richard (Greg Kinnear) and their two young children. It s a non-stop balancing act, the same one that Kate s acerbic best friend and fellow working mother Allison (Mad Men's Christina Hendricks) performs on a daily basis, and that Kate s super-brainy, child-phobic young junior associate Momo (Olivia Munn) fully intends to avoid. When Kate gets handed a major new account that will require frequent trips to New York, Richard also wins the new job he s been hoping for--and both will be spreading themselves even thinner. Complicating matters is Kate s charming new business associate Jack Abelhammer (Pierce Brosnan), who begins to prove an unexpected source of temptation.
