Friends with Money

Friends with Money ★★★½

Every cast Nicole Holofcener assembles feels like a minor miracle, and this is no exception, though I can't help feeling that Keener and Cusack drew the short straws as far as the material goes. Still, this is quite possibly a career-best performance from Jennifer Aniston, and I'm gonna tell my kids that this is the movie that earned Frances McDormand her second Oscar.

David as a character is so banal and awful that I ended up being more attracted to the dad from Modern Family, which is quite a feat, considering Jason Isaacs.
