A single woman envies the security of her married friends, while they in turn dream of her freedom in this comedy drama. Olivia (Jennifer Aniston) is a single woman in her mid-thirties who feels she's reached a crossroads in her life. Unhappy with her career as a teacher, Olivia quits and takes a job as a maid until she sorts out her feelings. However, Olivia feels as if she could use some support, both personal and financial, from her best friends, all of whom at very least have more in the bank than she does.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This delicious, seriocomic tale of four friends in affluent, liberal, west L.A. grappling with midlife crises, metrosexual spouses and household remodeling takes on an avoided subject: money, and how it affects our relationships."
‑ David Ansen, Newsweek
"Holofcener builds scenes around motifs that resonate marvelously."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Boasting generous performances from each player, this is a film that understands the foibles of human nature."
‑ , Film4
"The script is full of witty gems, while still remaining rooted in reality."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"...remains oddly uninvolving for the majority of its brisk running time."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"This is a dense and sophisticated work about mortality, materialism, madness, jealousy and pity a movie in which the fabulous duds are ripped off the "Sex and the City" gals and they're left teetering on the edge of the abyss..."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir,
"It engages us from beginning to end without strong narrative, or narratives. It lives through the quality of Holofcener's dialogue and the performances that she has drawn from her actors."
‑ Stanley Kauffmann, The New Republic
"Tidily grounded in Sitcomland"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Holofcener's anecdotal narrative doesn't give us much purchase on any of the characters."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"For all its Sundance cool factor, the latest from this gifted director glances off the viewer without leaving much impact."
‑ Erica Abeel, Film Journal International
"As a creator of characters, Holofcener has strong instincts for emblematic situations and telling habits, yet she takes a reticent approach to development -- she observes her subjects closely, but doesn't necessarily interpret."
‑ Jessica Winter, Time Out
"Sharply observed and cleverly written, in the end, the film is also a bit superficial, like its characters' lives."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"Holofcener jibes class and materialism without getting preachy and avoids formula with wit and compassion."
‑ Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix
"An astutely observed relationship dramedy, painfully funny even as it burns."
‑ Karina Longworth, Cinematical
"Una comedia agridulce sobre las relaciones de pareja y amistad de cuatro mujeres acomodadas, con buenos diálogos y observación de personajes. Muy buen elenco."
‑ Enrique Buchichio, Uruguay Total
