In Good Company

In Good Company

I watched this movie without reading any of the reviews. The only thing I knew was what I saw in the trailer. There were a few funny moments, but overall I would not classify this movie as a comedy. The romance was forced and artificial. Topher's character seemed to really love Scarlett, but she seemed to not care about him, which made her look rather sleazy when she suddenly came on to him. I felt all the relationships in this movie were very shallow and undeveloped. No one seemed to care about anyone, and there was very little character development. In the end, I have no idea if there was a point, other than "Stuff Happens". No one grew, no one changed, no new friendships were formed. It was neither a tragedy nor a success story. It was nothing. I was very surprised to see that it seems everyone who saw this film liked it. Generally I agree with the ratings on Rotten Tomatoes, but not even close in this case. I wish I would have avoided this movie, and I recommend you avoid it. Save your money. Save your time. Skip it.
