Friends with Money

Friends with Money ★★½ 2006 (R)

L.A.-set story about the friendship between three wealthy, married, middle-aged women and their slightly younger, unmarried, and decidedly not-rich pal. That's Olivia (Aniston), who has quit her teaching job in a fit of ennui to become a maid. Her friend Franny (Cusack) is a generous stay-at-home mom with a great marriage to Matt (Germann), while Jane (McDormand) is a continuously furious fashion designer whose metrosexual Brit hubby Aaron (McBurney) is suspected of being gay. Screenwriting partners Christine (Keener) and David (Isaacs) discover they don't even like each other as their marriage fractures. The women talk and support one another (and the actresses are great fleshing out some thin characters) but not much happens. 88m/C DVD .

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
