While In Good Company has a few moments of comedy that work, it inescapably feels like a sitcom.
February 15, 2005
A warm and witty comedy brimming with sharp insights.

Not only the best American picture of 2004, but also the most grown-up movie to come from Hollywood in recent years.

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

Ultimately, this workplace fairy tale creates its own cheer. When its time is up, you'll feel like you've been in good company.

If the rest of the movie were as good as Scarlett, we might give a damn.
January 14, 2005
A richly satisfying and darkly funny movie about, of all places, a workplace.
January 14, 2005
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.
January 14, 2005
A rare species: a feel-good movie about big business. It's about a corporate culture that tries to be evil and fails.
January 14, 2005
It's more fun than Sideways and just as adult, but because it hews closer to genre formula (and therefore is somewhat more obvious), you'll find it on few if any Top 10 lists.
January 14, 2005
It is clever and thoughtful and has the added benefit of being about people you may recognize as fellow wage earners, for better or worse.
January 14, 2005
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.
January 14, 2005
Makes the word mainstream seem a little less pejorative. It's a broadly appealing comedy that's neither stupid nor vulgar and, as such, deserving of praise.
January 14, 2005
It is at once funny, awkward and true, which puts it in rare company, indeed.
January 14, 2005
As corporate comedy-dramas go, Company is cheerful and easy to watch but surprisingly inept in the telling.

Before it hits the rails in a third act that has the odor of a test-marketing compromise, Weitz's film moves at an engaging gallop.
January 13, 2005
The movie's most poignant moments remind you that for every rising star in the corporate world, there's a dutiful old-timer who is suddenly, and sometimes unfairly, deemed expendable.
