Boasting generous performances from each player, this is a film that understands the foibles of human nature.

Holofcener jibes class and materialism without getting preachy and avoids formula with wit and compassion.

The script is full of witty gems, while still remaining rooted in reality.

Holofcener's anecdotal narrative doesn't give us much purchase on any of the characters.

An astutely observed relationship dramedy, painfully funny even as it burns.

This delicious, seriocomic tale of four friends in affluent, liberal, west L.A. grappling with midlife crises, metrosexual spouses and household remodeling takes on an avoided subject: money, and how it affects our relationships.

...remains oddly uninvolving for the majority of its brisk running time.

For all its Sundance cool factor, the latest from this gifted director glances off the viewer without leaving much impact.

Una comedia agridulce sobre las relaciones de pareja y amistad de cuatro mujeres acomodadas, con buenos diálogos y observación de personajes. Muy buen elenco.

Problematic at the center, but there's still pleasure to be had in watching the actresses navigate the emotional terrain.

This is a dense and sophisticated work about mortality, materialism, madness, jealousy and pity a movie in which the fabulous duds are ripped off the "Sex and the City" gals and they're left teetering on the edge of the abyss...

These characters are worth a visit, but don't be surprised if they don't stay with you for very long once you've gone home.

Just when did the polished Hollywood 'chick flick' of old begin to appropriate the stylistics of the indie film?

In a low-key way, it's a very fine performance. Poker-faced Aniston may be, but everything Olivia needs to say is right there in her eyes.

Marriage, success, self-worth and communication are put under the microscope and the result is funny, poignant and ripe with truths

Guys could learn a lot about women by watching this older, often funnier L.A. version of Sex in the City

[I]t's hard to distinguish [Holofcener's] more tentative approach to narrative [here] from an identity crisis. Maybe that's why McDormand's material has by far the most bite.

An amazing set of actresses add depth and character to the lives of four friends whose relationship will always be a mystery but whose love for each other endures.

If you are a woman, or if you love one, you should see it. You will see yourself somewhere, as with all her movies, and it will change the way you see yourself as well...Holofcener nderstands us better than we admit we understand ourselves
| Original Score: 5/5
