This is a brief glimpse at the lives of 7 friends, 3 married couples with money and their single friend,( Jennifer Anniston), who works as a maid and is pretty much broke.
One couple are very wealthy, another couple are screenwriters whose marriage is collapsing in bitterness and the final couple consist of a husband everybody assumes is gay and his menopausal wife who is getting decidedly cranky. The odd one out is Jennifer Annistons maid who had to leave her job as a teacher because of the snide behaviour of the middle class pupils whose clueless snobbery,( that you aren't shown ), is reflected in the way her friends treat her.
One friend matches her up with a charmless pig of a man but she eventually finds someone to love in an unexpected direction.
There is much to admire in the self discipline the director applies to her handling of this movie. The individual storylines are not all neatly 'tied up' in the end, instead there is a satisfying feeling that these peoples lives could go in a varity of directions after we have left them. The running time is little over 1hr 20 mins which means the story can be moved along at a good pace and there is no time for pointless waffle or long periods where nothing happens. Each moment is fully utilized and very quickly you start to feel you know these people,( but you don't and the expected cliches are avoided so that there are one or two surprises),.
The script is sharp and although there is humour this is not a comedy. The actors all bring their best to their roles and provide lifelike characters that draw you in. Standouts are Francis Mcdormands crumbling but funny menopausal woman, angry, confused and desperately trying to get a grip and Jennifer Anniston gives her best performance so far as damaged, lonely and odd friend out.

'Friends With Money' was written and directed by Nicole Holofcener, whose two previous features were wonderful studies of women and their relationships. I came upon Nicole Holofcener because of her new film, Please Give', which is receiving wonderful reviews, and I wanted to visit all of her films. The characters in her films are so real, it is like we are peeking in through the windows.

Jennifer Aniston plays Olivia, a maid. She used to be a teacher in an exclusive school, until the kids started making fun of her. She has friends with money. Jane, played by Frances McDormand, who is an angry byotch, screams at people and is going through some sort of life change. She hasn't washed her hair in weeks, 'you just have to wash it again' she says. And, by the way, she steals every scene she is in. She designs clothes that are overpriced but just wonderful. Christine, played by Catherine Keener, writes screenplays with her husband. They have a difficult relationship to say the least. Franny, played by Joan Cusack, stays at home and is concerned about the amount of money spent on their son's shoes. All, but Olivia have husbands. Jane's husband is cute and loving but everyone thinks he is Gay, but probably isn't. Christine's husband is the screenwriter, who is less than supportive. Franny's husband seems the most normal, so we don't know much about him, except he makes a lot of money. The film really centers around Olivia, and this may be one of Jennifer Aniston's best films. She is without glamour, fresh and a pit smoking woman who has no idea who she is or where she is going. Olivia is set up by Jane with Mike a fitness instructor, and, as we soon find out, a louse. He goes with Olivia and watches her clean house and then expects some financial compensation.

The photo on the cover would have you believe this is a feel-good comedy, but it's more of a humourous drama. The film examines the lives of three rich friends, and their poorer friend, Jennifer Aniston.
The acting is good, and it's quite witty, but it's also quite cold. Apart from Aniston, the characters are all quite annoying and unsympathetic - and they don't really change throughout the film. And even though they are meant to be best friends, they all gossip about each other wittily like they are just aquaintances - aquiantances that don't really like each other. If this is what passes for friendship in LA, then no wonder they are all nuts in Hollywood.
It did keep me watching, as it's well-done, but I can't say I really enjoyed it that much.

A Kid's Review on 15 Nov. 2010
Format: DVD
I have this film as part of a cheap mixed bag of a DVD boxset, I bought it for another film in the set (which was a massive disappointment) but this ended up being the winner for me. It really stayed with me after watching. Saying that I don't think it is a crowd pleaser of a film with mass appeal. This is a thoughtful, conversational look at a group of middle-aged middle-class female friends and their insecurities, failings and power struggles. A fantastic ensemble cast, with strong performances as should be expected from the excellent calibre of actors. Jennifer Aniston is truly a revelation as the central character, fragile, complex and for once playing a genuine outsider. I whole-heartedly recommend this. Similar sense of heart as another lesser known film, Crush [DVD] [2001]
