    The scenario is stale but the actors are faultless.

    Only when it wraps up all its loose ends with a feel-good sitcom conclusion does it finally reveal itself: It's an interesting failure rendered all the more disappointing for veering so close to success.

    It's "Rain Man" with ageism substituted for autism.

    If the movie overall had the bitter brio of Malcolm McDowell's brief turn as Globecom guru Teddy K, a Franken-mogul stitched together from bits of Richard Branson, Barry Diller and Rupert Murdoch, it would be a pointed black comedy.
  5. Has its heart in the right place, and could have been an insightful rumination on corporate shortsightedness and mid-life obsolescence. Instead, it's another one of those Hollywood films whose feel for the workingman's life seems to come exclusively from other movies.

    The movie has some pleasures, but can be heartily recommended only to those who like their entertainments equally inoffensive and inconsequential.

    Good points aside, In Good Company is a bland, occasionally phlegmatic pastiche of cliches and dull encounters.
  8. Grace and Johannson's courtship has all the heat of a wet wipe and, worse yet, leaves Quaid offscreen for long stretches.

The characters on offer here are not the usual rom-com black and white; they all have their own shades of grey. Impressive writing and acting also do their jobs well and (thankfully) the whole thing wraps up without shmaltz or over-sentimentality. In Good Company is a vastly underrated film and one I never seem to tire of. Full Review »
