Company Man

Company_man There’s an air of old-fashioned, if somewhat stale, innocence that hovers over "Company Man " as its singular saving grace for being merely a jumble of bland sketch comedy skits. With a diverse cast that includes Woody Allen, Sigourney Weaver, John Turturro, and Anthony LaPaglia, this reckless political spoof pins its almost nonexistent plot on the 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion for wacky comedy to ensue. Peter Askin and Douglas McGrath share writing and directing duties, with McGrath ("Emma") playing leading funny man Allen Quimp, a nerdy high school Grammar and Driver’s Ed teacher from a family of overachievers who bumbles his way into becoming a C.I.A. agent. The movie barely makes it to feature film length before giving out its last gasp of warped comedy.
Rated PG-13. 81 mins. (C-) (Two Stars)
