The movie lacks warmth and edge. It seems to be more of an idea than a story.

In some ways this movie reminded me of an off-broadway play; lots of talking and character development, but very little action.

Tidily grounded in Sitcomland

Fails to feature protagonists who boast more than a figurative purpose.

Boring rich people have to put up with a pot-smoking friend who insists on being single, a stalker, and a maid.

Sharply observed and cleverly written, in the end, the film is also a bit superficial, like its characters' lives.

It takes awhile to get going. A long while. Too long of a while.

[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.

Although the women provide the narrative's social glue, it's never clear how they formed their bonds. Rather than story, Friends With Money is founded on ready-made behavioral metaphors.

I think I liked Aniston's old friends better.

Holofcener, who also wrote the script, makes little attempt to puncture the insularity of her characters' lives, with either heavy satirical jabbing or flashes of illuminating insight.

Friends with Money is not a finished portrait, just a disposable snapshot of people we're less than invested in.

The movie meanders a bit, never quite following through on its undeniably nasty take on human relations.

It's so effortless and pleasant to spend time with the characters (and the actresses) in Friends With Money that it seems churlish to notice that the movie adds up to nothing much.

Is this a microcosm of society today, or is it a superficial attempt to gloss and dramatize relational boredom? You decide.

This is all such crap! Unless you like sitting in a dark theater watching people 'kvetch' for no good reason.

One would assume (Holofcener) knows a thing or two about female friendships, but you wouldn't know it from this drivel.

A mysandristic chick flick in the worst sense of the word.

Her other 'Friends' were much more entertaining
