About the Movie

Former Woody Allen collaborator Douglas McGrath co-wrote, co-directed, and stars in this historical screwball comedy that offers up its own creative suggestion as to what might have spurned 1961's Bay of Pigs invasion. McGrath plays Allen Quimp, a nebbish schoolteacher who in an attempt to appease his browbeating wife Daisy (Sigourney Weaver) boasts that he leads a double life as a CIA operative. Daisy immediately sets to work writing a tell-all biography, and as his rumor spreads, Quimp bumbles his way into working at an actual CIA post in Cuba. There, he's confronted by a Cold War vigilante (John Turturro) who enlists his help in taking down the country's communist strongman, Fidel Castro (Anthony LaPaglia). Company Man was co-written and co-directed by New York stage director Peter Askin; both Askin and McGrath sued the film's production company in 1999 when, they claimed, the privilege of editing the final cut was denied to them.

Rotten: McGrath is so infatuated with his own highly telegraphed silliness that even his wildest gags feel mothballed. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Rotten: Second-rate fare. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Mar 9, 2001

Rotten: An unusually annoying experience for viewers who might be expecting more fireworks in their satire. – David Hunter, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010
