The Company Men

Denise Franklin nudged me into seeing The Company Men because it has some important things to say about the corporate environment and the effect of downsizing on employees and their families.

Too bad the execution is sloppy because I always love to see Tommy Lee Jones.  The film has a high-powered cast:  Ben Affleck, Kevin Costner, Chris Cooper, and Craig T. Nelson.

What’s missing in The Company Men is a strong idea of what the film is trying to convey ideologically about corporate America – there are conflicting messages here that undermine the story…that and sloppy execution of a poorly structured script.
