This was film was touching and emotive transcending the complications in life expressivly by jenifer anistions role. Her depression and entrapement by her mono tone life were acted beautifully, altough a questionable ending all and all a wonderful black comedy.

You guys are nuts!!! This is my favorite movie of all time. The plot is close to realistic for a black comedy. The way the Jake Gyllenhaal's character is slowly revealed to both Jennifer Aniston's character and the audience is beautiful. Everyone is perfectly cast, the dialect is uncanny, and the humor is right on beat.

Horrible, rotten movie. Slow, shallow characters, boring plot!!! The boy who kept talking about how justine "got him" really just wanted to sleep with her, and he was stupid. I love Jennifer Aniston in friends, but this just goes to show you that she can't really make movie decisions and needs a strong director to chanel her energy or else she's just boring. Do not see this movie, don't waste you're time or your money!!!

Worst movie I've ever seen. I think Jennifer buried herself for accepting working in it.

Jennifer Aniston is a great actress in this film but the story of this film is awful.

"Sigh": bored young wife in small town seeks adventure. Heard it all before, yet Aniston's character does exist (I've dated a few) But if she's so smart, why not pack a bag and head for the city, and get a "high powered" job. Is it because of feeble self esteem? Why take the low road and try to solve her problems by sexing it out with stranger? I wanted to see this "intelligent" woman use her brains instead of her body to think her way out of a desperate situation. A disappointment.

Such a waste of money... Jennifer Aniston was mediocre and the movie was dull.

I thought this was the FIRST movie that was realistic of poor White trash that I've ever seen. It is so sad to see that this is real life. No hollywood ending. Too bad. I know Jennifer was perfect for this part. She is a sincere person and played the role beautifully. I am very impressed with the twists, and turns the moveie took... you didn't know where it was going from one minute to the next. Contrary to most people's beliefs, she truly was a good girl. And tooo damn good for my sake, cause I'd left the dumb bozo and gone to another place and forget all the past.

I found this movie frightfully dull, though some of it may be prejudice on my part. I didn't want to see this movie because I really don't like Jennifer Aniston, I hate her acting, and I went only because I owed it to my sister. You should probably see this movie but warned, it's rather boring.

Didn't expect much, didn't get much. Thank God it was Tuesday so price was less. I think we should pay for movies after we have seen them and give them what they were worth. I would not give more than $3 for this one. Too slow. Two bored and depressed people who forget what is right and what is wrong and keep sinking lower and lower.

The movie started off slow and seemed to touch on every cliche of small town American existence and for the most part didn't relent. There were no real surprises in this movie either except perhaps Jennifer Aniston's performance which was very good. I guess the point of this movie was realism but sadly this was lost on me as I expected more. The best part was how the director used the theme of literature. A rental for sure.

A very positive departure for Jennifer Aniston with some genuinely funny moments and a lot of insight to the monotany of life.

Hmmm... I'm waffling between giving a 7 or an 8 for this movie. Maybe I'll decide by the end of this review. Aniston delivered a very restrained performance, which is entirely fitting for her repressed character. I think she did a fine job in the role. Gyllenhaal was also good as the mysterious and disturbed Holden. He can say a lot with those expressive eyes. The supporting cast was outstanding, which is important in a film such as this - one that focuses on character over plot. It's interesting to note that none of the characters are especially likeable. And while we may not agree with some of the choices they make, the flaws in character make them seem like real, true-to-life people. They make wrong decisions and live with the consequences. I think that's what I admire most about the film; it's not the standard fluff that we find too much of these days. On the down side, it does move along slowly, but I suppose that's part of its small town charm.

Yikes. Agonizingly predictable and sloooow... Jennifer Aniton's delivery was freakishly flat. Hats off to Zooey Deschanel mind you - for adding a wee glimmer of enjoyment to an otherwise-painful 93 minutes.

Did anyone really believe Jennifer Aniston in this role? I had a lot of difficulty seeing "Rachel" working in a Walmart. I also found the chemistry between her and Jake Gyllenhaal to be flat as well. I couldn't wait for the movie to end.

This gem is so true to real life situations we've all heard of but so rarely seen on the big screen, that I was shocked out of cinematic lethargy for the time being. More importantly, however, a woman is artfully portrayed by Aniston in a way that most of us know, but dare whisper: women can be cunning, manipulative, and downright evil at times. The 'Pollyanna' myth is just that--a myth. Of course her character has redeeming features too; she is a complex person, full of 'good' and 'bad'. Neither is this film for the 'mid-aged', as one 'critic' proclaims, as it truly shows the connection between actions and consequences, something most youth are no longer taught.'The Good Girl' has many more layers though, both loud and subtle; one is struck by the constant portrayal of characters in their natural habitant which most of us also unfortunately occupy -- that of being transfixed in front of the television. This is one movie which says tons about the world we live in, without spoon-feeding us like children. It's a movie about adults, for adults. My only negative comment is that at no time does the picture really 'emote'; this is much more of a 'thinking' journey.

Certainly no soothing pastoral images in this film, but rather a juicy dark comedy ripe with the trappings and tribulations of modern suburban life. A disingenuous bored wife and her psychotic younger co-worker, a pot smoking husband world weary from his small town existence and dead end job and a ignominious best friend ready to jump at a moments notice to bed his best friend's wife all conspire to make this film a hilarious trip through the cheap aisles of the "Walmart like" store in small town America where most of it's inhabitants seem to work. This film has a sort of "Raising Arizona" feel to it and will appeal to fans of this Genre. Jennifer Anniston does an admirable job of shedding her Friends "good girl" image and is quite believable in the character she portrays in this film. John c'est Reilly is great in his role as the character "Phil Last" as is Tim Blake Nelson who appears in the film as "Bubba". You may remember him playing the character Delmar O'Donnell, one of the Soggy Bottom Boys in the film "O' Brother Where Art Thou." Honorable mentions also go out to the Hilarious Zooey Deschanel who will have you laughing in the Aisles. See this movie, it's definitely worth it. I rate this film 8 chili dogs.

The Good Girl is a good movie that entertained me throughout. This picture takes a bleak view of small town American life by showing us the dismal existence of Justine, (played by Jennifer Aniston) an unfulfilled thirty-year-old married woman working in a discount store in an unnamed Texas town. The story is littered with entertaining dark humor that pokes fun at many things about modern American life. The story is compelling if you can identify with Justine's loneliness and feelings of hopelessness within her marriage and job. Justine attempts to find happiness by escaping into the arms of another man which brings on as you might expect- many problems and complications for her and those around her. The action of the story is believable even if the characters involved are not, and while the ending of the story has much tragedy, Justine is able to find some meaning and hope for the future. This is a must see film for Aniston fans who would like to see her in a role far removed from that on Friends..

In this dark comedy, the protagonist Justine has a decision between remaining where she is, the topic of gossip and enduring misery, and the beautiful unknown. The crossroads is both literal and figurative, so a wee bit of spoon feeding must be tolerated. A secret adds a bit of mystery and escape from monotony, but a delicate balance is impossible to maintain in a town where everyone wants to escape. I liked the ending. Justine and her husband, Phil finally seem to understand each other at least a little bit, and thats a nice change.

Director Miguel Arteta doesn't make it easy for the viewer to appreciate his film. The story is about 2 very depressed persons who find out that they are possibly a perfect match and the solution to their boring lives. Following these 2 characters through their descent is at times a little bit heavy but the incredible acting combine with the very witty and funny dialogue by Mike White makes the film a success. What actually makes this works is that the movie is grounded on reality and you can identify to the different characters because you know those people in your life.

I went to see it with my mom and we both loved it. I'm going to buy it when it comes out on video. I think that most males won't like this movie and that's ok. That doesn't mean that it is a bad movie. Everyone has different tastes in movies and different opinions.
