In Good Company

Rated PG-13 2005

The man who made About a Boy makes a movie about a man -- men, actually, one of whom, a magazine ad salesman named Dan Foreman (Dennis Quaid), has everything the other, Carter Duryea (Topher Grace), desires but has no idea how to attain. Carter, Dan's new boss and the younger of the two by some 25 years, believes he has it all, only to realize it's meaningless. Dan, with his beautiful wife (Marg Helgenberger), two daughters, and a lovely home in the suburbs, wants only one thing now: to keep his job when a media kingpin buys the magazine and Carter replaces him. In Good Company is about many things: a love affair between Carter and Dan's daughter that occurs beneath Dan's nose, the burgeoning father-son relationship between Carter and Dan, the fear of losing your job with a kid on the way, the desire to please a boss who doesn't even know your name. There's something terribly old-fashioned about it, but that's never a bad thing; it is moral but never condescends, and it espouses decency without proselytizing.
