Writer-director Weitz scores with this wry commentary on the effect of corporate politics on the modern family. Seasoned ad-exec Dan Foreman (Quaid) arrives at work to discover he's been demoted to make room for his new boss, 26-year-old Carter Duryea (Grace). Carter is the golden boy of the office's new corporate owners, but his work success barely masks his unfulfilling personal life. Carter finds himself drawn to family-man Dan, particularly Dan's fetching daughter Alex (Johansson), and the two men reluctantly teach each other about the vagaries of workplace ethics. Lapses into sentimentality and the end comes a bit easy, but strong performances by Quaid and Grace save the day.

In Good Company
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 2.0 4.0

Paul Weitz directed the romantic comedy, In Good Company, starring Dennis Quaid (as Dan), Topher Grace (as Carter) and Scarlett Johansson (as Alex). In Good Company released to DVD in 2004 and has a total running time of 131 minutes. Dan Foreman is a hard working husband and father. He works for an advertising agency and is head of sales. His world goes for a spin when he gets demoted and especially when he finds that his new boss his half his age! The two men don’t hit it off right away but slowly learn to get along. Things go for another spin when Carter falls for Dan’s daughter Alex. This was a good comedy. I enjoyed watching this movie and wouldn’t mind watching it again.
