Critic Reviews for Company Man
McGrath can't decide if he wants the movie to be a satire or a broad farce.
Given the disastrous state of the final product, it's hard not to wonder if it was worth all the blood, sweat and celluloid.
This movie looks and feels so retro, so unrelentingly unironic, that the very guilelessness of it makes you want to giggle.
The rapid-fire gags are relentlessly cute and announce themselves with all the subtlety of a pounding headache.
Company Man is to filmmaking what Molotov cocktails are to social gatherings.
Audience Reviews for Company Man
** (out of four) There was some potential here, but is, unfortunately squandered on silly gags and an unfunny script. Set against the Cuban Revolution of 1959. Douglas McGrath stars as a teacher whose wife (Sigourney Weaver) wants him to get a better social position. He ends up helping a Russian Ballet dancer (Ryan Phillippe) to defect to the U.S. setting off an international incident.
In this spoof about the "true story" behind the Bay of Pigs, Funny (in a theatrical stage type story), critical of U.S. government and foreign policy in a silly, yet, poignant way. Great comedy to watch in these times of war and delusional political decisions. I enjoyed this movie, but felt I would have laughed more if it were better cast.
