What is remarkable is how realistic the story is.

Entertainment Weekly
Stunning, unsettling, beautifully written drama.

ReelViews
In the Company of Men is anything but entertaining. It's virtually impossible to sit through this film without suffering bouts of intense discomfort, and therein lies its power.

Austin Chronicle
As disturbing as it is well-made, this low-budget indie is a thoroughly original piece of work.
88
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
In the end, like any satire worth the name, In the Company of Men spins around to fire its biggest salvo at its ultimate target -- the audience.
75
San Francisco Chronicle
Tersely written and compellingly acted. But its controversial subject matter may make a lot of viewers so angry that the film's strong points will be disregarded.
75
USA Today
A provocative dissection of human dynamics.

Chicago Tribune
The movie sticks with you, thanks to LaBute's observational powers and the three impressive lead performances. [15 August 1997, Friday, p.C]
60
This is a film worth seeing, and LaBute is a filmmaker well worth watching.
50
San Francisco Examiner
An independent film so enamored of itself it refuses to have any fun.
