Friends With Money

Filmmaker Nicole Holofcener (Walking and Talking, Lovely & Amazing) adds her dry-witted observations to another ensemble comedy/drama about modern domestic screwups. Jennifer Aniston provides the axle around which this tiny universe revolves. Aniston plays an unambitious single woman working as a house cleaner who finds herself surrounded by successful, married people. Of course, her friends (Joan Cusack, Catherine Keener, Frances McDormand) have their own secret problems balancing career, family and love. Vanity, jealousy and middle-aged ennui are among the keenly observed topics, but the situations don't seem quite as involving as in Holofcener's previous projects. 88 minutes R.
