Review: Friends With Money (2006)

If you can buy Jennifer Aniston as a housekeeper with a lousy love life (which I did) then there’s a good chance you’ll find something to like in writer-director Nicole Holofcener’s film about friendship between women and across social strata. Frances McDormand (a successful clothing designer), Catherine Keener (an unhappily married screenwriter), and Joan Cusack (a full-time mother) are the friends with moolah. Aniston’s character is unmarried, unfocused, and from her friends’ vantage point, the most unfulfilled. But is she? The viewer is a fly on the wall as this relationship-driven story observes each woman coming to realize, this is it–this is their life. [*** out of 5]
