In Good Company

Thoroughly enjoyable yet ultimately disappointing. I cant figure out why Paul Weitz would feel the need to tease his audience so much. An interesting story combined with brilliant acting keeps the audience enthralled for almost two hours and then, without remorse, denies us the satisfaction of the formulaic Hollywood ending that we crave so badly. The ending was so obvious, and telegraphed from such a great distance, I’m quite sure he actually filmed it, but then during a bad day in the editing suite decided to play a cruel joke on his audience and left it instead as an extra on the DVD. I feel so betrayed.
