Storyline

Four women friends: three are wealthy and married plus there's Olivia, a former teacher who's now a maid. The marriages are in various states of health: Franny and Matt are happy and very rich. Christine and David write screenplays together, are remodeling their house, and argue. Jane is angry all the time and Aaron, who's an attentive husband, strikes everyone as gay. Franny sets up Olivia with a friend of hers, Mike, a personal trainer, and Olivia takes him with her to a couple of housecleaning jobs. A benefit dinner for ALS, an awkward guy named Marty whose place Olivia cleans, and a French maid's outfit figure in the story. Is there more to life than its problems?

Christine: Wait. There'll be a line?
Richard: It's invisible.

Surprisingly good, great ensemble cast and interesting character study
3 March 2015 | by juneebuggySee all my reviews

I put off watching this for ages because I just assumed it was another Jennifer Aniston (exchange the guy, get same movie) romantic comedy. I also can't keep any of her movies straight because they're so similar so I wasn't sure if I'd seen it or not.

Anyways I ended up really enjoying this mostly due to the large ensemble cast and a cleverly written script. (Frances McDormand, Joan Cusack, Scott Caan, Catherine Keener, Jason Isaacs, Greg Germann) I became invested in all these characters, who give an interesting and well acted character study.

The story follows three successful couples, all in their forties and struggling through midlife despite their wealth. All the stories intertwine with Jennifer Anniston playing the single loser friend who can't find a man (really), has zero self confidence and envies the security of her married friends. They in turn dream of her freedom. It was interesting to see Anniston as a pot smoking, slacker but honestly she was still just another reboot of Rachael Green. I did really enjoy Joan Cusack and also Frances Mcdormand's storyline. 01/13
