Very boring movie would not recommend it to anyone
This movie can drag out a bit in the way of story line, very much a chick flick recommend for the lonely heart who love questioning loves worth. Good cast Main story around Jen Aniston
Ho hum, gr8 to watch if you can't get to sleep!
Disappointing. Very slow. Was expecting more from this one.
Good chick flick, predictable story line. Enjoyable though
Delightfully real script, acted by a group of great professionals. Loved it. Aniston shows, once again, that she is a great actress.
Not for those who like explosions in their movies.
One of the worst movies ever! Plot goes no where, characters are boring, and the cast look terrible......
A light girly film, entertaining, Jennifer was was good in this.
One of the worst movies ever. Slow, boring and pointless. Dont waste your time on this one.
I wasn't overly impressed by the movie but nothing stands out as specifically awful. It just wasn't to my taste
One of the weakest movies I've ever seen. So much unrealised potential.
And the ending... what - did the writers have an argument like in the movie and just stop writing??
Jennifer was truly soppy - and that 'twist' - could see it coming from a mile away, and it was handled with as much nuance as the latest 'Saw' flick,
This is entertaining but the story never seems to climax, and the threads you expect to develop further just don't. But entertaining.
People you would go out of your way not to spend time with - even in a movie
"Painfully hilarious" would not be my description of this abysmal movie - just painful. Watching grass grow would be far more interesting, and I wouldn't recommend this even to my worst enemy!
I enjoyed seeing each couple on a personal level, but I didnt like how the 'poor' friend was a sex crazed 'pothead' with no ambition. I highly doubt in normal social circles that rich would mingle with poor as is done here. Some parts intense and deep but for the most part, rather depressing.
Give this one a wide berth - very very slow ......
Sad and depressing and with a bum ending. Aniston and McDormand were good in their roles though.
Great stuff the ending was unexpected great twist.
I really liked it! Dark and dry. Don't know what all the bad reviews are for. Sure it's no masterpiece but I think the acting is great.
A movie where you are introduced to the characters and their lives and that is it!!!! This movie went nowhere!
People and their problems.
A group of truly horrid people moan and groan their way through lives in which the biggest problem they face is working out what to do with their spare 2 million dollars. The movie is dull (absolutely nothing happens) and the peole are superficial so the only way this is a great chic flic is if you like dull, superficial things. Ugh.
I liked this movie. . It has a few funny scenes if you watch close enough. Chick flick, but i loved it!
I liked this movie, altough it did end quiet suddenly. . It has a few funny scenes if you watch close enough! Worth watching i think!
Doesn't really go anywhere. Plods along and has no climax.
I have no idea why some reviews say this is a chick flick? The only problem with this movie is that it has no answers or ending. It's just a snapshot of life. I am sure we all know or can relate to elements presented in the film, but without digging deeper the movie leaves you empty.
I was disappointed.Don't bother.
It was interesting and unusual. None of the characters were likeable. Good performances. Stays in your mind.
Slow and strange and very weird ending??
Disappointing. Slow and JA character is just too dumb and niave. Gets going a bit towards the end then stops. A good idea for a film but very under done.
Not our "cup-o-tea" we did not finish watching.
Not bad. The usual light stuff you see Jennifer Aniston in. Don't expect too much.
an intriguing film that explores ordinariness with humour and insight.
Enjoyed the movie, however, found there to be a lack of climax.
Not worth getting, the plot just doesn't go anywhere and the characters constantly do things that are just annoying!
kind of okay, bit long winded.
complete waste of time :
not even a chick flick for the wife
don't waste your time
My wife thought it was great.
This was a total waste of 80 minutes. It went no where and it was totally pointless. The plot was non-existant. Trust me...Don't waste your time
The movie ended before it appeared to actually reach any type of conclusions or ending
I wish I had read your reviews before getting it, boring movie with no plot.
It was a bit slow. Very dramatic, and the ending was a bit like, huh?
DONT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS THOMAS THE TANK WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER. BORING BORING BORING
If you're looking for a movie to help you sleep, this is it.
Surprisingly good. Not all about Jennifer Aniston. Particularly liked how seamlessly it moved from looking at one relationship to another. The women characters were very likeable. Ending not ideal but okay. Definitely recommend
Loved it. Being 40ish I could relate to the individuals, not the money side of it per say but the pysche of the adults involved.
This was the worst movie I have ever seen in a long time. Absolutely nothing happens and to make it worse nothing happens at the end. You watch the whole movie hoping something will happend to wrap it up and make it worthwhile and it is a huge waste of time.
Money and material things come in and go out of these characters' lives (inheritance, rewards for hard work, greed, theft, astute investment and saving, court settlements). Personal priorities, lifestyle choices, and attitudes of these characters make very interesting viewing.
Pretty poor. Had no purpose.
Kinda pointless movie. A bit unrealistic too.
I found it a little slow, even with all the well known actors in it. I found myself feeling it was a little 'gappy' with it moving from one story to the next - still quite enjoyable though when it ended I found myself sitting there going 'huh? is that it?' so up to you.
An inoffensive little sets piece, that needs no great deal of brain concentration. However, in saying that, it was an entertaining piece of viewing.
A group of superficial and generally nasty people. It's hard to care what happens to any of them, really. A waste of time for the viewer and waste of the actors' abilities. A real lemon.
Silly ending. It was 'okay'.
One of those movies that makes you realise, as the end credits roll, you've just wasted a few hours of your life.
It's good to see a little more reality and less fantasy in this script.
after 30 minutes, we looked at each and in unison "do really care", and turned it off.
Worth watching if you're in your late 30's or approaching menopause.
I really liked this n can sooo relate!! I have friends an family that are jus like this.
A wonderful slice of life!
Pleasantly suprised. No story line as such, more a look at how people cope with the hand they are dealt, particularly in relationships. Jennifer Aniston has managed to brush off the airhead persona from her "Friends" days and Frances MacDormand is a gem in everything she does. A couple of unanswered questions at the end but that didn't detract from this being an enjoyable movie.
very average film not very absorbing if there is no9thing else to watch ,maybe
Not great but if you have nothing better to do...
Soley for the cast. This movies didnt start and didnt end.
really slow,go nowhere movie
I enjoyed watching the movie, but just kept expecting more from it!! Seemed pretty predictable.
This one's different. I enjoyed it for what it was, a mature cast & an intriguing screenplay, altho I agree with most that the ending came out of nowhere - but I think that was the idea. Kudos to Jen for making this, a refreshing change from picture perfect happy ever afters & good vs evil etc.
We did not know what the point of the movie was.
Fairly interesting but also a bit annoying. Some things were highly unlikely ie. who Jennifer Aniston ends up with...
Most peolpe don't get films like this that don't serve them up nice tidy messages with clearly defined good & bad guys - shame really but I guess that explains Spiderman 3 making millions. Great acting and good on Jen Aniston for taking on a role of someone who is is flawed and has some not so nice personality traits. Very brave. Too much reality for some.
extremely boring. don't bother
c grade movie,but i've seen worse
This movie is terrible! I turned it off about 2/3 the way through, I couldn't handle it anymore! It's slow starting and doesn't get any faster! It's depressing and not funny at all. I can't imagine why Jennifer Aniston would have agreed to such a tragic film!
definitely one for the girls. bit slow but enjoyable.
rich people have problems? no joke.
boring... not so much of a plot..
This film perfectly sums up the vacuity of a certain way of living - the movie goes nowhere - no-one learns anything - it's pretty feeble stortytelling actually.
Very slow had no real story, would not even rate it as a chick flick.
I don't like it when movies don't "end". This movie was okay to watch but resolved nothing really, and was not that exciting... Glad i didn't watch it with my hubby or he would have hated it. An okay afternoon movie while doing other things - glad I didn't waste my money in the cinema.
Great girls movie, although ended abruptly
A bit depressing but quite a deep film.
Slow starting, the plot never develops and it seems to end about halfway through. Rubbish, really...
