As my mama always says, "Meh."

I finally watched Friends with Money the other night. I'm a big fan of Nicole Holofcener, and I usually like it when Jennifer Aniston tries to go all everyday woman on us. Oh, hell, the reality is I'll watch virtually anything with Joan Cusack in it, even if she's being a bitch. The problem was, she wasn't being a bitch, per se, just kind of a bitch. Everyone in the movie seemed halfway something; Aniston was halfway a mess, McDormand halfway to losing it, and Keener just about halfway to being Keener. The movie never went anywhere, which isn't always a bad thing, but in this case, it wasn't a good thing. It just ended, and I was left feeling ... not much of anything, actually.
