Can an unforgettable film be made about redundancy? The simple answer is yes and no. With an almost exceptional cast and some truly great writing this is a memorable film. The Company Men falls short on a few regards; it is predictable and regrettably contains Ben Affleck's face. The latter is a sin on par with adultery in my book. All that was needed was to substitute Ben for Casey and we'd have come up smelling of roses.

I went into this drama with an air of caution assuming any film about the recession would be handled too conservatively and with all focus on the firms responsible. Thankfully this was not the case. Focusing on three men that have lost their jobs, the direction brings a personal touch to the story and sucks you in more than it otherwise might. Tommy Lee Jones and Chris Cooper are superb in their roles as the older men on the wrong end of the firing stick. Jones had skirted my radar of admiration for several years until his sensational casting in No Country For Old Men (I swore I wouldn't mention the Coen Brothers, sorry folks) and Cooper's resume includes American Beauty and City of Hope (1991). Both are stellar actors and, in the twilight of their career this type of film is a great move.

Affleck's character goes through the predicted emotions, denial, optimism, depression and acceptance through the duration of the film which is a breath of fresh air as you can authentically see how this affects his family and how the wife and child deal with the situation that Affleck takes upon his own shoulders.

Writer and director John Wells made a promising choice to follow three strands of storyline that are interconnected, however, Jones and Cooper's stories are not able to hold attention and aren't fleshed out sufficiently rendering them ineffective. While necessary for the storyline these break up the flow of the movie slightly and make for a pinball style ride.

I still heartily recommend watching The Company Men. It will never reach my repeat watching list reserved for the calibre of Leon The Professional and Grave of the Fireflies as it lacks that extra dimension. It is however, enjoyable, intriguing and emotional.

My 357th Review: Finally a good honest film about the downturnReviewed byinteleartsVote: 8/10

Whether we like it or not the last couple of years have been incredibly tough, and TCM though not perfect at least tries to make an honest film about downsizing in corporate America.

We really really got this - we all know someone whose lost their home, their job, or just found that the money isn't there the way it was - and those who reviewed this and said the films doesn't work as the characters have still got it good just don't get the college payments, the mortgage, the fear of losing it all, and the horrendous amount of money it takes to maintain a life in the US now is astronomical - and TCM at least looks at this as no other film has in the past three years.

Solid performances from everyone and Affleck in particular echoing his roles in Man about Town or Jersey Girl does a solid job here as the man who has it all and then has nothing.

It it does try to record something which otherwise seems to be in danger of being swept under the carpet - this is a well-made film that rings true and for our money was actually one of the more memorable and yes, even moving, films of the year - it is accessible and a likable film.

Stacking the DeckReviewed bydansviewVote: 6/10

What a crock! The Tommy Lee Jones character is super wealthy and the Chris Cooper character should have loads of money saved up. Even the Affleck guy being a sensible MBA would have put away loads in 14 years.

Most of the movie is only within 4-6 months of them losing their jobs. The Cooper character can't pay his daughter's tuition after working for 35 years and being at a high level? It's so bad that he has no hope? I can see where the Affleck guy would have to cut back on expenses, because a lot of guys in his salary/benefits range overextend themselves, but it wouldn't be drastic right away.

Also,the economy was the bad guy, not the company itself. Or is this all about one CEO making a bundle? The people were given generous severance packages and career counseling services.

I don't even get the movie. I suppose the message is that big corporations are good when you work for them and make a bunch of money, but they are evil when they lay you off. Dry Wall guys who work with their hands and drink beers after work are spiritually holier than business executives? There was no character development of the CEO and very little of the other folks. Jones was an adulterer and kind of aggressive and rude. But suddenly he's an idealist? Affleck's guy seemed pretty shallow throughout, although he redeemed himself by helping a black guy find work.

I know that this was supposed to be some kind of profound statement about wealth inequality or the value of hands-on labor or the working class. But it didn't make the case very well. I was left wondering what the hell the point was. They had good jobs, the economy went south, and they lost the good jobs. They weren't protesting anything before they were let go.

I did enjoy the general scenery, and Affleck does have an appealing way about him on screen. Jones is the same guy in every movie.

If you watch it, keep your guard up and try to figure out what the heck the writer is trying to say, other than the basic "Occupy" manifesto.
