REVIEW:

Paul Weitz, who wrote About a Boy, succeeds again in blending emotional material with comical sensibility creating a rewarding payoff. In Good Company is charming, quirky with affection and a heartfelt story that follows a family man, his daughter and his boss half his age, all with something to learn and appreciate from the other.

Dennis Quiad plays Dan Foreman, a middle aged advertising business man with a happy family and two daughters is living a rather pleasant life. Everything seems find until a sudden shakeup at work causes firings and management change, via Carter Duryea (Grace). Carter is a young successful newbie looking to make a name for himself. He tries to achieve the American dream by having not only a successful occupation but also a perfect marriage. But his marriage is the first to falter.

Meanwhile Dan has to accept working under a much younger boss, who starts firing off his fellow co workers. But Dan is safe, and over time Carter meets his daughter, Alex (Johansson) a college student, while in the elevator. The two eventually start dating until Dan finds out, and a conflict emerges among all three.

In Good Company has a lot working for it. For starters, the cast is perfect. Quaid is excellent in his role as he struggles to accept changes in his life from his job, his daughter in college, and the new baby on the way. Meanwhile, Carter discovers over time that the perfect life he sets out to achieve is not the life that suits him.

He admires Dan because of his ability to maintain a healthy family life while balancing his work. But he later realizes that itís not so much Dan managing his social and professional life, but the fact that heís happy, something that has eluded Carter.

The drama is light, bordering on soap melodrama, yet itís still effective because the actors are sincere in their performances. When he discovers Carter and Alexís relationship, heís angry but more disappointed and upset that he and his daughter have been drifting apart. The idea of her heading off to college factors into his emotional state, believing that his daughter is no longer his little girl.

The heartwarming tone In Good Company keeps the experience pleasant and enjoyable. Itís a sweet film with a compelling cast and quirky humor that keeps a smile on your face. Weitz has done an excellent job creating well rounded characters, avoiding the easy route of stereotypical one note personalities. These are people you see in everyday life and because of that, you can relate to the characters and the story. In Good Company is in the company of a stellar cast and a gifted writer/director. Enjoy.
