  1. At its best, Company Man hums from one piece to the next, a harmless, good-natured, often silly spoof with a few cutting barbs and a comic showman's love of the well-executed gag.

    It's not that the film is devoid of honestly earned laughs here and there. The problem is that there are too few of them and that the film can't connect them.
  3. A painfully flat spoof of the 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion.

    The political movie satire from hell.

    Unfunny comedy. Nearly everyone is terrible except for Cumming, who just does what comes naturally and steals his every scene.

    A consistently silly, occasionally funny but mostly forced account of how a mild-mannered teacher from Connecticut unwittingly triggered the Bay of Pigs fiasco.

    Ingenious plot! Most people do not remember, or have knowledge of the historical content involved in the making of this hilarious movie. VeyrIngenious plot! Most people do not remember, or have knowledge of the historical content involved in the making of this hilarious movie. Veyr good casting (including non credited Woody Allen), John Tuturo, Alan Cumming etc, etc... make this movie a very humorous and interesting story of America's past with Cuba.
    Don't forget Denis Leary and his bout with the Grammatical GENIUS LOL! OneWhoKnows has the BEST idea of how this movie works your brain! Congrats to him/her!!

    I meant to say Woody Allen does NOT take credit. So this is an addendum to my glowing review for the marvelous comedy. The scenes with DennisI meant to say Woody Allen does NOT take credit.
