Newsweek
A smooth mixture of satire and sentiment that owes an obvious debt to "The Apartment," not to mention "Jerry Maguire."
80
Genial, generous-spirited and unmistakably entertaining.
75
Gives Dennis Quaid one of his best screen showcases.
75
New York Daily News
An amusing and unusually compassionate look at today's corporate culture.
70
Weitz gives all his actors room to shine.
70
Variety
An often lively comedy-drama that lands some nice jabs at the mega-corp ethos, In Good Company makes for pretty good company until going soft when it counts.
70
In Good Company lacks both the emotional sting and the bright pop-culture snap of "About a Boy," as well as Mr. Hornby's carefully cultivated irony, but it makes for an agreeable solo directing debut.
60
Village Voice
The scenario is stale but the actors are faultless.
50
The A.V. Club
Only when it wraps up all its loose ends with a feel-good sitcom conclusion does it finally reveal itself: It's an interesting failure rendered all the more disappointing for veering so close to success.
50
L.A. Weekly
It's "Rain Man" with ageism substituted for autism.
