A warmly satisfying comedy about dissatisfied people seeking to escape from the personal prison of their mundane lives in soulless suburbia.

In Miguel Arteta's quirky indie feature, Jennifer Aniston searches for meaning and passion in a swirl of suburban malaise and ironically may have finally found a character who can reveal the shades of her talent.

After languishing in second-banana roles in such films as Picture Perfect and Rock Star, Ms. Aniston here creates a fully realized character of surprising nuance and depth.

I wish I could say I liked it more, but despite a smattering of priceless moments, The Good Girl gets bogged down in the very narrowness that afflicts Justine.

In the long run, The Good Girl will be remembered more as a chance for Jennifer Aniston to wet her acting chops than for anything else.

White, who has a knack for imparting a sense of humor to his screenplays, created several minor characters who lighten the Retail Rodeo's claustrophic atmosphere.

O humor ácido e a sensibilidade do filme com relação aos seus personagens merecem aplausos - assim como a belíssima performance de Aniston.

Aniston may not have received her much-touted Oscar nomination, but this brilliantly funny and often touching film should assure her a solid post-Friends career.

Maybe Aniston should stop trying to be serious and stick with being funny, which is something she can certainly do.

The Good Girl belongs to Aniston, who buries Rachel in style with a sweet, soulful, hangdog performance that you will be thinking of long after you leave the cinema. .

'Si bien no logra desarrollarse como un gran drama, tampoco es tan superficial como muchas cintas que pecan de pretenciosas y que resultan totalmente banales.'

Wraps itself in the guise of a dark and quirky comedy, but it isn't as quirky as it thinks it is and its comedy is generally mean-spirited.

A watchable and competently acted drama ... It's all very much out of the American Beauty rulebook.
