This movie looks and feels so retro, so unrelentingly unironic, that the very guilelessness of it makes you want to giggle.

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.

At its best, Company Man hums from one piece to the next, a harmless, good-natured, often silly spoof with a few cutting barbs and a comic showman's love of the well-executed gag.

An over-the-top comedy that is so intentionally 'bad,' it's hilarious.

Political '60s spoof won't interest most teens.

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.

The so-called jokes and gimmicks seem recycled from the worst of the 1960s.

A breezy, originally plotted film... [sunk] by its jitterbug tone and McGrath's jittery screen presence.

McGrath aims for the humor of early Woody Allen. He doesn't even achieve the humor of early Austin Powers.

Wit is drowned out by caricature, and the antics become laboriously over-the-top.

McGrath can't decide if he wants the movie to be a satire or a broad farce.
