Movie Haiku:Thirtysomething Olivia (Aniston) makes bad choices & shirks commitments. Her 3 girlfriends give her advice, painfully aware of the tiny worms burrowing inside their own bright red apple-lives. Why is this all so watchable? Dunno, just is. Holofcenerís tremendous empathy for her characters is evident in the castís terrific chemistry.
