This is absolutely one of the worst pieces of trash I've ever seen. This blatant "issue" movie, in an attempt to say something important, says nothing. Infantile screenwriting. On-the-nose dialogue. How does a writer/director this bad even gain enough influence to be able to direct Roger Deakins and Chris Cooper? Why did any of them sign on? There's no surprise, inevitability or enjoyment amongst The Company Men.
Pity the poor upper class, tossed out of work and unable to have their hundred dolllar lunches or pay country club dues and keep their golf game up while searching for work. http://eddieonfilm.blogspot.com/2011/02/when-you-go-from-well-off-to-jobless.html
