In Good Company

In Good Company is perfectly competent filmmaking, and nothing more. I found that disappointing, because I think director/writer Paul Weitz has a great film in him, and sometimes it sneaks out of him, and then he runs it through the commercial-palatability machine, and he makes American Pie. This one lacks the semen-centered humor of that earlier work, so I guess it’s more "mature," but its story about a 50-year-old man who finds that his new boss is a 26-year-old … who’s sleeping with his daughter! is just a little too standard in its cutesy twist. Nonetheless, both Dennis Quaid, who plays the 26-year-old, and Topher Grace, who plays the 50-year-old, are great. Wait, no, Quaid plays the old guy and Grace the young one. But I think it would have been much more interesting if they had switched. Oh well. At least you get to see Scarlett Johansson make goo-goo eyes while wearing a tight top.
