Friends with Money movie review

Olivia (Jennifer Aniston) quits her well-paying job and has to come to terms with no longer being on an equal footing with her more wealthy friends.

If you liked Seinfeld then you might like the self-serving, obnoxious characters in this movie. You may find their lack of ethics or morals charming, you may even enjoy the larkish things they do.

But, frankly, I need a reason to spend a couple of hours with anyone - fictitious or otherwise, and this story is bland and it's characters unpleasant, and why waste your life on any of them?
