Friends With Money
A single woman envies the security of her married friends, while they in turn dream of her freedom in this comedy drama. Olivia (Jennifer Aniston) is a single woman in her mid-thirties who feels she's reached a crossroads in her life. Unhappy with her career as a teacher, Olivia quits and takes a job as a maid until she sorts out her feelings. However, Olivia feels as if she could use some support, both personal and financial, from her best friends, all of whom at very least have more in the bank than she does. But that's not to say they don't have problems of their own. Christine (Catherine Keener) and her husband Patrick (Jason Isaacs) are screenwriters who have discovered that collaborating is more stress than they can deal with. Jane (Frances McDormand) is married to Aaron (Simon McBurney); they work together as designers, but while their professional relationship is cordial, they've become numb to one another as lovers and friends. And Franny (Joan Cusack) and Matt (Greg Germann) are a couple who comfortably support themselves and their children thanks to an inherited fortune; while their material needs are met, emotionally they can barely handle marriage and parenthood. Friends With Money was written and directed by Nicole Holofcener, who previously made the acclaimed independent features Walking and Talking and Lovely & Amazing. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    The Cast


    too bad, they had the perfect cast now they just had to fix the writing! i bought the movie before i watched it because i usually like all of joan cusack and jennifer anistons movies i thought i would love this one. i thought it was long and boring. i did like this one part though towards then end about jens character im not giving away anything, but that was the only really good part in the movie. i was disappointed.

    Chick Flick


    I normally can't stand Chick flicks but this one is truly entertaining. Women should find it funny. I really don't think men will like it much since it focuses on women's issues. This is a funny and sweet movie. Jennifer Aniston is wonderful as the loser, Olivia.

    Not very good at all


    Started watching it and finally stopped wasting my time around 1/2 hour or so in. Disappointed with characters and movie.
