Political '60s spoof won't interest most teens.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
May 19, 2009
There's an air of old-fashioned, if somewhat stale, innocence that hovers over "Company Man " as its singular saving grace for being merely a jumble of bland sketch comedy skits.

February 22, 2008
The so-called jokes and gimmicks seem recycled from the worst of the 1960s.
September 3, 2002
A breezy, originally plotted film... [sunk] by its jitterbug tone and McGrath's jittery screen presence.

June 20, 2002
McGrath aims for the humor of early Woody Allen. He doesn't even achieve the humor of early Austin Powers.
Full Review| Original Score: 1/4
October 11, 2001
Wit is drowned out by caricature, and the antics become laboriously over-the-top.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 26, 2001
McGrath can't decide if he wants the movie to be a satire or a broad farce.

April 12, 2001
With its incredible vanishing hero and its forgettable jokes, there's nothing to stick with you, nothing that sticks out enough to recommend.
April 12, 2001
The story is thin, and the film looks as if it was thrown together on a whim.
April 12, 2001
Given the disastrous state of the final product, it's hard not to wonder if it was worth all the blood, sweat and celluloid.
April 5, 2001
I'm astonished that even at 81 minutes the film contained not even one little chuckle.

The quality of jokes in Company Man can be divided into three categories -- lame, lamer and lamest.

March 23, 2001
This movie looks and feels so retro, so unrelentingly unironic, that the very guilelessness of it makes you want to giggle.
March 16, 2001
The rapid-fire gags are relentlessly cute and announce themselves with all the subtlety of a pounding headache.
March 16, 2001
It all adds up to a few good bits spread thinly across an even thinner concept for a movie.
March 12, 2001
A lamentably incompetent spy send up...a lame period comedy stalled in neutral and filled with drop dreadful jokes rejected from Get Smart! and disbarred vaudeville routines.

March 9, 2001
Company Man offers precious little to laugh about.
March 9, 2001
A smart comedy melding cold-war paranoia and pre-feminism gender roles that only intermittently succeeds is far more welcome than yet another big, loud, juvenile attempt to make us laugh.
March 9, 2001
Second-rate fare.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 9, 2001
The script, by co-writers and -directors Douglas McGrath and Peter Askin, is intermittently clever, but their direction is leaden and assassinates every gag with a lethal accuracy the CIA could only hope to achieve.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
