If you've seen the trailer, you've seen almost everything good in Bad Company.

Rock doesn't really act with the other performers; he stands next to them and buzzes in his own orbit.

Top Critic

Despite its clich?-ridden premise, Bad Company often works simply because there's so much talent on the screen.

Predictably soulless techno-tripe.
