Demoted from his corporate job, a man (Dennis Quaid) learns his new, younger replacement (Topher Grace) is also dating his daughter (Scarlett Johansson).
" A rare species: a feel-good movie about big business. It's about a corporate culture that tries to be evil and fails. "
" It is at once funny, awkward and true, which puts it in rare company, indeed. "
" 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. "
" A richly satisfying and darkly funny movie about, of all places, a workplace. "
" 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. "
" If the rest of the movie were as good as Scarlett, we might give a damn. "
" 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. "
" Ultimately, this workplace fairy tale creates its own cheer. When its time is up, you'll feel like you've been in good company. "
" 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. "
" 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. "
" 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. "
