Movie Review: The Company Men (2011)

Tommy Lee Jones and Ben Affleck in The Company Men

Photo: The Weinstein Co. If you can tell me what I was supposed to take away from The Company Men I would be greatly appreciative. So far as I can tell the moral of the story is that in the current economic climate you better hope you don't lose your job, but if you do, you damn well better hope you know someone with millions of dollars who can come along and set up a new company so you can get another one. Other than that, you're all screwed.

Now that I think about it, perhaps that is the message of writer/director John Wells's corporate downsizing feature that stars a fleet of acting talent but does very little to put it on display. Perhaps the downtrodden feature with, what I assumed to be, a shining beacon of hope »
