Friends With Money (2006, USA) C-88m. SCOPE ** D: Nicole Holofcener. Starring Jennifer Aniston, Frances McDormand, Joan Cusack, Catherine Keener, Jason Isaacs, Greg Germann. Ambitious, perhaps, but unsuccessful character drama about 30-something Aniston, who makes a living cleaning houses, but has training as a teacher. Her life is contrasted with that of her (more successful) friends. Talky, unsatisfying, peters out without becoming anything it wants to be. Title is one of the worst in recent memory.
