    Some funny moments, but ultimately not a very interesting movie. Scarlet Johanson is wasted in a little roll with almost nothing to it. Quaid is the most satisfying thing about the movie, but even he has one of those hackneyed public speeches which typically end in a slow clap (which this film, thankfully, does not provide).

Some of the most egregious product placement moments in the history of film. Not a bad way to spend 2 hours, but certainly not a movie that you must see in the theatre to enjoy. I imagine it will play just as well on TV or, better still, on a long flight. Expand

    This is hardly a romance movie, as the romance is a really just a side event to the overall younger-boss theme. The actors are acceptable, although you really don't see much of Scarlet J. Dennis Quaid is capable, although his facial expressions and manerisms are turning him into Harrison Ford. The theme was good, the execution was acceptable, but the last half hour really dragged the This is hardly a romance movie, as the romance is a really just a side event to the overall younger-boss theme.

It wasn't what I'd call a Hollywood ending but it did eventually become predictable and that last half hour really took away from my complete enjoyment of the movie. Expand

    Loved the actors, soundtrack, and most of the acting, but for a plot to have so many holes in it, and not fill them in leaves me thinking any other movie in the theatre would have been better. When this movie had the chance to make an impact, it decided not to, never climaxing and never delving into new ground.

    A smooth mixture of satire and sentiment that owes an obvious debt to "The Apartment," not to mention "Jerry Maguire."

    An often lively comedy-drama that lands some nice jabs at the mega-corp ethos, In Good Company makes for pretty good company until going soft when it counts.
