In the Company of Men

"Extraordinary"

In the Company of Men Review


Yikes! Turning the tables on political correctness, affirmative action, and especially, the feminist movement, never seemed so fun on film! In the Company of Men teaches you that everything you know is wrong and slaps you in the face for enjoying it. This phenomenal gem is, on the surface, a simple tale about two jilted male co-workers, who, on a six-week long business trip, decide to take revenge on all the females of the species by jointly finding a "corn-fed" wallflower, making feel like she's a beauty queen, then dumping her like a sack of bricks. Hard. Chad (Aaron Eckhart) is the smooth one. Howard (Matt Malloy) is a lovable Winnie the Pooh type. Together, they're devastating... until "the game" ends up having unpredictable effects on the both of them, as well as Christine (Stacy Edwards), their deaf victim. Unpredictable and wholly unique, In the Company of Men is a powerful moviegoing experience. Take my advice, and watch it with someone you love.

Royale, with cheese.
