Product Description

Product Description

Poignant comedy drama starring Dennis Quaid as a slightly weary advertising boss and dedicated family man. Dan Foreman (Quaid) has spent 20 years as the head of advertising sales for Sports America, a leading athletics magazine. He is happily married with a daughter who he dotes on. But Dan's life is changed when he is demoted and his old position is handed over to a younger man, Carter Duryea (Topher Grace).

From Amazon.co.uk

Nowadays it's rare to find a movie that pays attention to human weakness as well as strength, and that sees a whole person as having both. When a sports magazine gets bought by a media conglomerate, an ad sales executive named Dave Foreman (Dennis Quaid) finds himself playing second-in-command to Carter Duryea, a hotshot barely half his age (Topher Grace) whose marriage has just fallen apart. One evening Carter invites himself over to Dave's house to escape his loneliness, where he meets Dave's daughter Alex (Scarlett Johansson). The two strike immediate sparks and when they run into each other later in the city, a relationship begins--which they discreetly keep from Dave. But the heart of the movie is not in its plot, but in the way that Dave responds to the news that his wife is pregnant, or how Carter tries to fortify his self-image with a new car. These aren't jokes; the actors inhabit these moments fully and turn them into psychological events. Quaid plays Dave as a simple man, but his straightforwardness feels genuine (rather than a failure of the writer's imagination). Grace and Johansson have terrific chemistry as lovers, but so do Grace and Quaid, both as rivals and as a substitute father and son. In Good Company isn't likely to win any awards, but it's honest and honorable; there's a core of truth to its characters and their problems aren't resolved too neatly. Sometimes, that's worth watching. --Bret Fetzer, Amazon.com

“In Good Company” is a thoroughly nice film. It has a nice plot, a nice storyline, a cast full of nice guys and a nice ending. It’s never going to set the film world on fire but it’s a professionally made and totally pleasant film that should be well and truly enjoyed.
Dan Foreman is a steady family man who juggles the responsibilities of home and work with the skill of a circus performer. He’s liked and respected by his colleagues at the advertising sales of a sports magazine and loved and adored by his wife and two daughters. Life is good until two huge bombshells descend on him within hours. Firstly he discovers that his wife is pregnant and at 51 he’s naturally worried that he’s too old to be a dad again. Secondly the company he works for is taken over by a huge global corporation and shock horror, a young wizz kid has been placed above him.
Carter Duryea is the 26 year old executive who’s been groomed for big things within the corporation. For all his management speak verbal diarrhoea he’s really a nervous young man, unsure of how to deal with the new team he’s just taken command of. To round off Carter’s problems he wife of only 7 months leaves him, leaving him alone and more than a little forlorn in the strange town. He forces himself an invitation to Dan’s home for dinner and it’s there than he meets and falls for Dan’s beautiful daughter Alex. How will Dan be able to cope with the idea of his younger boss also loving his daughter?
Dennis Quaid is perfect for this sort of role, as Dan he’s fills the part with an authoritarian fatherly figure than is not only totally believable but absolutely convincing.

"In Good Company" is definitely good comedy and makes for terrific entertainment! Contemporary big business practices are satirized here Big Time! Written and directed by Paul Weitz, this is a film with a fluid storyline interwoven with some poignant threads about how we set our priorities and choose to live our lives. Not corny or too sentimental, the top-notch cast and good acting only increase the viewers' pleasure. Dennis Quaid is fabulous here, as is Topher Grace, his young nemesis. What more could one desire in a movie for a fun evening - except some hot popcorn?
Dan Foreman, (Dennis Quaid), is the successful Director of Marketing for Sports America Magazine. He actually likes his work, which is good, since he is a twenty-five year veteran of the ad industry. Dan is a fifty-something family man, married to forty-ish Anne Foreman, (stunning Marg Helgenberger from TV's CSI), who, we learn early on, is pregnant - a pre-menopausal surprise! It's OK, they're thrilled about the upcoming event! Daughter Alex, (Scarlett Johansson), an eighteen year-old college student, and her slightly younger sister Jana, (Zena Gray), really make-up the kind of warm, loving family anyone would want to belong to. These are decent, intelligent, normal people, who all seem to possess a sense of humor - some quirkier than others.
Carter Duryea, (Topher Grace), is a 26 year-old marketing wiz for GlobeCom, a multinational corporate conglomerate, owned and run by a Rupert Murdoch-like figure, "Teddy K," (Malcolm McDowell). Carter has frequently impressed his colleagues and managers with his creativity. His latest success, a cell phone ad campaign which targets preschoolers with dinosaur multi-colored mini phones, that roar instead of ring, has put smiles on GlobeCom employees' faces.

In Good Company is a well-made, entertaining film that reveals the soullessness of our modern "Who Moved My Cheese?" society. Companies are bought and sold like common chattel, dedicated workers are sacrificed to the cash cow of corporatism, business leaders make hundreds of millions of dollars by uttering meaningless catch phrases and big words while proving themselves quite oblivious to the concept of actually serving their customers (or their employees), and the depersonalization of the business world leads to corporate scandals and broken lives. In this film, the old school meets the new school; it's not always pretty, but it is entertaining - and educational.
Dan Foreman (Dennis Quaid) has it pretty good; he's got a great wife and two teenaged daughters, he makes a good living doing something he enjoys - overseeing the ad sales for Sports America magazine, and he's happy in his quiet, stable life. Then, change crashes down upon him in wave upon wave. He learns that his wife is pregnant (which is the last thing he expected at their age), Sports America is sold to a big conglomerate, he's replaced by some college kid know-it-all, and his eldest daughter wants to transfer to NYU (second mortgage, here we come). At least he does get to keep his job - he's just reporting to young Carter Duryea (Topher Grace), who has zero years experience compared to his twenty-three years in the position he just lost. As he watches long-time clients disappear and good employees that he hired lose their jobs, he thinks things can't get much worse - and then he finds out that his daughter is sleeping with his young boss. One can understand why he gets a little grumpy at times.
Carter is an interesting character, and I must say Topher Grace acquits himself quite well in the role.
