This structure works a treat for the family tale, but on the corporate side it becomes the deal breaker that undermines a plot which pleasingly inverses the age means power paradigm.

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.

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

Wastes a great performance by Dennis Quaid.

Perhaps the final clue to this film's striking mediocrity is that the original title, Synergy, was swapped for the totally forgettable new one, In Good Company.

Flabby.

A sporty situation comedy on steroids, bulked up with a smooth Quaid and the beguiling Johansson. Besides a heart, the only thing lacking is a set of commercial breaks.

Nothing is ostensibly bad about it, except that it's mostly surface-level respectability without risk; well-made but inauthentic.

Just crap

Although he won his spurs with American Pie, Weitz's style here is more like a soufflé: light, classy, short on substance.

Globalization is nefarious. Nuclear families are good.

A bland, occasionally phlegmatic pastiche of cliches and dull encounters.

If the rest of the movie were as good as Scarlett, we might give a damn.

Feels like a movie written by and for marketing types -- Quaid and Marg Helgenberger (as his wife) to appeal to baby boomers, and Grace and Johansson for Generation Y. That's a business strategy, not a movie.

Topher Grace, Dennis Quaid and Scarlett Johansson all turn in fine performances. But they all seem to tread water, waiting for the next big wave that doesn't come.

As corporate comedy-dramas go, Company is cheerful and easy to watch but surprisingly inept in the telling.

This is a movie for the Dans of the world, inviting them to chuckle ruefully at the monkey business those crazy kids get up to nowadays and concocting just punishments for whippersnappers who try to elbow their elders out of the way.
