Christianity Today

It's got a 'Father Knows Best' sensibility about it that exalts character over profit margins. But in my opinion, the story's execution falls short of its potential.

Una comedia más bien "seria" que no busca tu risa fácil sino que pases un rato entretenido junto a personajes humanos y creíbles a los que les pasan cosas humanas y creíbles.

There are no throwaway stereotypes here, just well-rounded characters that resemble personalities that we come in contact with everyday.

While In Good Company has a few moments of comedy that work, it inescapably feels like a sitcom.

Philadelphia Weekly

A bit of a fantasy, but it's heartening to see a studio entertainment that's at least willing to acknowledge some of the real-life problems currently faced by its audience.

The film is extremely well cast. Topher Grace and Dennis Quaid work brilliantly together, to the point where you feel genuine affection for both characters.

While feel-good in nature, the movie avoids the slushy mush normally found in films of this genre.
