Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"McGrath can't decide if he wants the movie to be a satire or a broad farce."
‑ Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"The rapid-fire gags are relentlessly cute and announce themselves with all the subtlety of a pounding headache."
‑ Cody Clark, Mr. Showbiz
"Political '60s spoof won't interest most teens."
‑ Beth Pratt, Common Sense Media
"A breezy, originally plotted film... [sunk] by its jitterbug tone and McGrath's jittery screen presence."
‑ Brent Simon, Entertainment Today
"With its incredible vanishing hero and its forgettable jokes, there's nothing to stick with you, nothing that sticks out enough to recommend."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"Given the disastrous state of the final product, it's hard not to wonder if it was worth all the blood, sweat and celluloid."
‑ Gary Dowell, Dallas Morning News
"Second-rate fare."
‑ Mike Clark, USA Today
"There's an air of old-fashioned, if somewhat stale, innocence that hovers over "Company Man " as its singular saving grace for being merely a jumble of bland sketch comedy skits."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"McGrath aims for the humor of early Woody Allen. He doesn't even achieve the humor of early Austin Powers."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"The story is thin, and the film looks as if it was thrown together on a whim."
‑ Duane Dudek, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"This movie looks and feels so retro, so unrelentingly unironic, that the very guilelessness of it makes you want to giggle."
‑ Eric Harrison, Houston Chronicle
"Company Man is to filmmaking what Molotov cocktails are to social gatherings."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"The so-called jokes and gimmicks seem recycled from the worst of the 1960s."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Wit is drowned out by caricature, and the antics become laboriously over-the-top."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"I'm astonished that even at 81 minutes the film contained not even one little chuckle."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
