    Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern

    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.

    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    The denouement of the movie is as preposterously happy as a children's fairy tale. But the moral is ageless.

    Chicago Tribune Allison Benedikt

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

For Families provided by Common Sense Media

Iffy for 14+

A so-so script but great performances.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this film has some explicit sexual references and situations for a PG-13, though there's no nudity. Characters use strong language, drink, and smoke. Some viewers may be disturbed by the economic upheavals and lay-offs.

  • Families can talk about some of their own experiences in the workplace with difficult supervisors or pressure to meet aggressive financial goals. Some family members may want to learn a little bit more about the pressures that create opportunities for those, like Teddy K, to exploit employees and investors for their own benefit.
