In Good Company — A soft movie about relationships, work, and change — 9*/10

In Good Company is about the new guard taking over the old guard. It's also a very muted confrontation of generations, and a light family movie. Part of it is a romantic comedy, part of it is a caricature of the corporate world, and how it's all based on relationships.

Dennis Quaid, Topher Grace, Scarlett Johansson and Marg Helgenberger are perfectly cast for their role. Their acting is right on the mark, and feel very real, natural, smooth. The rest of the cast does a pretty good performance for a great result.

The photography is soft, the scenario very interesting, and poignant. The editing and soundtrack are just what is needed. Nothing bad to say about anything, really.

If you're looking for even tempered, but still sentimental film without action, this is it.
