This is the cream of the crop in "chick flicks". The interlocking stories of four women (three with money and one without) and in the close orbit of their loving relationships (no, they weren't lesbian's) are the men in their world, who do play supporting roles in the women's lives. Joan Cusack, Catherine Keener,Frances McDormand and Jennifer Aniston star in this movie about friendship, love and the pitfalls that come with those feelings. Would guys get into this movie (besides seeing Aniston is a little French maids outfit)? If they're in touch with the true world, where they must share both air and space with real women, and do it without all the superficial macho bullshit that fails to show real men, they might enjoy it. Women? They will love it hands down.
In this movie Friends with Money, Olivia (played by Jennifer Aniston) is startling funny as she goes to the shopping center at the perfume counter and obtain samples (as she can't afford it). Her other three friends all have jobs some are very well to do and they all complain about something. Franny is the rich one played by Joan Cusak. Very funny. A great movie for your collection.
My sister and I still talk about the fem men in this flick. I know men like this, and the relationships between the women with money and the girl Jennifer Aniston, is totally real. I watched this on the cable box with my sister, and found myself thinking about it and ended up buyint the dvd. Its really a complex film, and Frances McDormots character is so 40s woman. This is a thinking person's film, I enjoyed it and will watch it again. The fem men, so nurturing and caring, wow! See it, MR
Holofcener does her best job yet of capturing that weird relationship that monied couples have with other well-heeled couples. Anyone who lives in a swanky suburb and who has an appreciation of the absurdity of so many suburban rituals will appreciate this fine piece of work. It's fresh, witty and real.
It's just one of those movies that is very honest and blunt about real people's lives and turmoil - highly recommend it!
I have never seen this movie but it was reccomended to me by my daughter.She said it was an excellent movie and for the price it was more than worth it!! I am so happy that I won!!
