Rating:
PG-13

In Good Company, a critically acclaimed drama starring Dennis Quaid and Scarlett Johansson, offers a timely critique of American corporate culture. Dan Foreman (Dennis Quaid) is a happily married ad executive with two teenage daughters when he learns that, due to a corporate takeover, he has been demoted. Even worse, his replacement and new supervisor is an inexperienced 26-year-old, Carter Duryea (Topher Grace). Since Dan's wife has just announced that she is pregnant with a third child, he can't afford to leave his job and must struggle to accept Carter's bold but insecure leadership. Dan learns that despite his incredible success, Carter's life isn't as charmed as it seems; his wife of 7 months is divorcing him. A distraught Carter invites himself to dinner at Dan's home and is smitten by Dan's 18-year-old daughter, Alex (Scarlett Johansson). When Alex starts dating Carter, Dan's problems at the office cross over into his home life.

    An often lively comedy-drama that lands some nice jabs at the mega-corp ethos, In Good Company makes for pretty good company until going soft when it counts.
