Fresh comic thinking spices up this smart cookie of a satire from director-writer Paul Weitz (About a Boy). He makes it sexually provocative and subversively hilarious.

Chicago Tribune
Grace and Quaid imbue what could have been caricatures--with heart, intelligence and great comic timing.

Entertainment Weekly
The denouement of the movie is as preposterously happy as a children's fairy tale. But the moral is ageless.
75
A richly satisfying and darkly funny movie.

Gives Dennis Quaid one of his best screen showcases.

Philadelphia Inquirer
While Weitz's story is diverting, the performances cut deeper than the film.

New York Daily News
An amusing and unusually compassionate look at today's corporate culture.

In Good Company is a rare species: a feel-good movie about big business. It's about a corporate culture that tries to be evil and fails.
75
Lively acting and timely humor are the main assets of this garden-variety comedy.

Wall Street Journal
How, then, does "In Good Company" turn out for the better in spite of itself? No mystery at all. Whatever the fate of old media, or new media, for that matter, winning performances are here to stay.

The Hollywood Reporter
Weitz gives all his actors room to shine.
