Consensus: A flat and misconceived movie with big stars.

Eleanor Ringel Cater
Atlanta Journal-Constitution

McGrath can't decide if he wants the movie to be a satire or a broad farce.

Cody Clark
Mr. Showbiz

The rapid-fire gags are relentlessly cute and announce themselves with all the subtlety of a pounding headache.

Beth Pratt
Common Sense Media

Political '60s spoof won't interest most teens.

Dallas Morning News

Given the disastrous state of the final product, it's hard not to wonder if it was worth all the blood, sweat and celluloid.

Mike Clark
USA Today

Second-rate fare.

Cole Smithey

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.

Eric Harrison
Houston Chronicle

This movie looks and feels so retro, so unrelentingly unironic, that the very guilelessness of it makes you want to giggle.

Peter Howell
Toronto Star

Company Man is to filmmaking what Molotov cocktails are to social gatherings.

Jeffrey M. Anderson
Combustible Celluloid

The so-called jokes and gimmicks seem recycled from the worst of the 1960s.
