A middle-aged man finds a callow twentysomething usurping his professional life and worming his way into his family in this alternately funny and poignant comedy drama. Dan Foreman (Dennis Quaid) is a man who is turning 52, and is the long-time head of advertising sales for Sports America, a leading athletics magazine. Dan is happily married to Ann (Marg Helgenberger) and has a college-age daughter, Alex (Scarlett Johansson), whom he dotes on; but Dan's comfortable life is given a major shake-up when a large multimedia firm buys the magazine. Seen as a bit long in the tooth to be truly competitive, Dan is demoted to second in command of advertising, and his position is handed over to Carter Duryea (Topher Grace), a 26-year-old who talks a good game about sales but has no practical experience in the field. Dan's wounded ego makes working with the arrogant Carter an uphill battle, but when he learns that Ann is expecting another baby, Dan is in no position to quit. Before long, Dan becomes aware of Carter's intense insecurities about his new job as the younger man reaches out to him for guidance, but this doesn't make Dan any less angry when Carter begins a romance with Alex after his marriage to Kimberley (Selma Blair) crashes and burns. In Good Company marked the solo directorial debut of Paul Weitz; he previously worked in collaboration with his brother Chris Weitz, who serves as producer on this film.

I'm a big Dennis Quaid fan, and this movie is on par with his other good films. Topher Grace and Scarlett Johannson were excellent as well. Pass a nice evening with this movie and you won't be disappointed.

Did not leave me disappointed. Topher Grace played his part very well and showed the "business" ways in America. Very recommended.

This is personally one of my favorite movies. It's funny (I thought Topher Grace and Dennis Quiad played their characters exactly as they would be), it's charming, and the end is a real life ending, not some fairy-tale ending like you would see in so many other chick-flicks. I thought this movie was very realistic, and histarical! A must buy!

I really enjoyed this movie. It shows how even those who think they have it all in the professional world have nothing if they can't make their personal lives work. Topher Grace shows that while he may be on top of Dennis Quaid professionally, Quaid is much better off because he learns how to value his family and take care of what matters most in life.

This is an absolutely hilarious, and deeply felt film of ordinary people, and ordinary lives, and it is also very clever. Topher Grace and Dennis Quaid meet head-on with amazing performances, and Scarlett Johansson is basically on her way to becoming an excellent leading lady, next to Meryl Streep.
