Overview

The wacky spy comedy Company Man comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials are limited to a theatrical trailer. This is a slight, but agreeable disc that matches up with the slight, but agreeable film contained on it. Anyone looking for something outside the Hollywood mainstream should enjoy this disc.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jason Clark
An occasionally strained but overall agreeable farce, this joint effort by Peter Askin and actor/writer/director Douglas McGrath recalls films such as Dick (1999) and The Impostors (1998) in its resignation to the sillier side of revisionism. The film is visually flat, but the material produces many happy surprises, most notable in its wonderfully game cast, which includes terrific turns by Sigourney Weaver (a woefully underused comic talent), the always inventive John Turturro, and an unbilled Woody Allen, who is great fun in a surprisingly relaxed and sharply witty turn. At 81 minutes, the movie still seems slightly padded, but it's awfully hard to knock a film with such an admiration for vaudeville, and the genial tone of the movie prevents it from being too abrupt. It's a feature that is eager to please, and if one can appreciate its indulgences, it offers a healthy number of well-earned laughs.
