Given the disastrous state of the final product, it's hard not to wonder if it was worth all the blood, sweat and celluloid.
March 23, 2001
This movie looks and feels so retro, so unrelentingly unironic, that the very guilelessness of it makes you want to giggle.

Company Man is an object lesson in the difference between writing funny lines and writing a movie.
March 8, 2001
Makes your wristwatch feel like a sundial.
March 8, 2001
An unusually annoying experience for viewers who might be expecting more fireworks in their satire.
March 8, 2001
This is a light comedy that uses a sledgehammer when a fly swatter would have done just fine.
March 8, 2001
Well-intentioned but utterly misguided.

McGrath is so infatuated with his own highly telegraphed silliness that even his wildest gags feel mothballed.

I felt as if I'd really stumbled into Movie Critic Inferno, a place of eternal torment for sinful reviewers.

Almost bracingly unfunny.
February 7, 2001
Consistently silly, occasionally funny but mostly forced.
