In Good Company

Lou and I watched In Good Company last night. It stars "up and coming" actor Topher Grace of That 70's Show and Traffic. Also in Traffic and one of the main characters in In Good Company is Dennis Quaid. Topher plays a groomed advertising executive who, at the age of only 26, takes over Dennis Quaids position in a company. The snag is that he doesn't know what he's doing and keeps Dennis on as a wingman. Topher is also going through some marriage problems - his wife leaves him and he finds solace in none other than Dennis' daughter played by Scarlett Joahansson.
The film sounds a little clich├ęd but it cleverly staves off predictive plot lines in favour of something refreshing which I'll not go into for fear of ruining the movie. Nonetheless it's a nice little film to watch if you're in the mood for a comedy drama.

I would give this film 3.5 porches out of 5.
