Critic Reviews for Friends With Money
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.
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...
As a creator of characters, Holofcener has strong instincts for emblematic situations and telling habits, yet she takes a reticent approach to development -- she observes her subjects closely, but doesn't necessarily interpret.
It engages us from beginning to end without strong narrative, or narratives. It lives through the quality of Holofcener's dialogue and the performances that she has drawn from her actors.
Audience Reviews for Friends With Money
Nicole Holofcener comes outta nowhere and delivers an astounding insight into American hopes and dreams that's breathtaking. A chick flick that's better than any chick flick I've ever seen. Don't let this one past you by. Great performances all around. No CGI though. Even better.
Enjoyed this for the second time. Not a huge story, and not a cute rom com as you might expect with Jennifer Anniston. Jennifer plays Olivia, a down on her luck teacher working as a maid. Her three friends are better off financially, but having their own struggles. The funniest part was the lady screaming that a customer pushed in front of her in line. The movie is funny, but it's a black humour. More something for a 30 plus to watch. I don't know that a younger audience would really get it. Not one for someone who likes all happy endings and sunshine in a movie either.
One of those "seems so real you feel like a voyeur" flicks. I had a hard time believing Jennifer Aniston as a sad sack, but the rest of the cast was solid.
