Product Overview

Dan Foreman (Dennis Quaid) is a loving husband, caring father and star ad executive. But now, life is putting him through the ultimate test. Carter Duryea (Topher Grace), a young hotshot half his age, has just become his boss. And to complicate matters, Dan discovers Carter is dating his daughter (Scarlett Johansson).

It's filled with genuine laughs and you're in good company when you watch this entertaining comedy that Rolling Stone calls "hilarious."

Review In Good Company has two strengths to recommend it: strong character interaction and a viciously accurate depiction of the modern corporate philosophy. The film's perspective of how things work in today's boardrooms is savagely accurate. People are viewed as disposable assets who are "let go" when salary has to be cut to meet a bottom line. Shortsighted greed has replaced a long-term view of steady growth. This "slash and burn" philosophy permeates corporate America - you are useful only for as long as you are helping keep the company in the black. Falter, no matter how important your contributions have been, and you're gone. In Good Company captures this viewpoint in a manner that reflects both the absurdity and poignancy of the situations it creates.

Review "In Good Company" so far has been the usual corporate slasher movie, in which good people have bad things happen to them because of the evil and greedy system. Then it takes a curious turn, which I will suggest without describing, in which goodness prevails and unexpected humility surfaces. The movie was directed by Paul Weitz, who with his brother Chris made "American Pie" and the Hugh Grant charmer "About a Boy," and with those upbeat works behind him I didn't expect "In Good Company" to attain the savagery of Neil LaBute's "In the Company of Men," but I was surprised all the same when the sun came out.

Quotes
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly The denouement of the movie is as preposterously happy as a children's fairy tale. But the moral is ageless.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone Fresh comic thinking spices up this smart cookie of a satire...
Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer A smart, savvy and satisfying Hollywood comedy.
