[Film] In Good Company

*** (out of 5)

Slow, very mechanical set-up that creates a drama more than a comedy. Obviously Paul Weitz has been influenced by working on About a Boy, because this is a very simple story: Topher Grace becomes Dennis Quaid’s boss. Play up the age difference.

What saves it is an amazing cast: Grace, Quaid and Scarlett Johannsen. I didn’t understand what the fuss was about her until I saw this movie. Now I agree, this woman is a star.
