      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Neil LaBute's pitch-black comedy is a masterful exploration of male insecurity, and it's elevated by a breakout performance by Aaron Eckhart as a businessman who likes to play psychological games.

      Diegostosu Just wonderful! It took time, but I believe I watched the bravest film of my life. And it's a good comedy by the way, it makes you want to do the same hahaha Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/09/23 Full Review Thomas M Best filmmaking debut ever from Neil LaBute! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/25/22 Full Review william d I was touch and go on this one until the last twenty minutes or so. It didn't pull any punches at the end and I liked that. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Ekhart is excellent as the sociopath behind this weird game. Definitely an original plot but somehow I was never pulled into caring about anyone or how things transpired. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Neil LaBute proves himself again to be a sexist, bigoted filmmaker whose characters love to blame women for all of their problems. The story offers no real message or interesting story arc. These two men treat a woman with a disability like absolute dog shit, one physically assaults her and the other has been cheating all along? I'd give no stars if I could and 5 out of 5 "fuck yous". I hate this movie so much I created a Rotten Tomatoes account just to review it. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review nefasto r Being cynical, cruel and funny, "In the company of men" turned out to be one of the most interesting and provocative movie I have seen in a long, long while. A smart indi movie that will provide you a unique "menage à trois". Strongly recommended! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Lisa Schwarzbaum Entertainment Weekly Rated: A Sep 7, 2011 Full Review David Edelstein Slate A dazzling, repellent exercise in which the case against men is closed before it's opened. Feb 11, 2008 Full Review Jeff Giles Newsweek LaBute, a playwright and former drama teacher, has succeeded in creating a study of banal, everyday evil. Feb 11, 2008 Full Review Michael Atkinson Spin The dark side of Dilbert, Neil LaBute's scabrous In the Company of Men tells us all we ever wanted to know, or rather, all we already knew in our guts, about life on the postindustrial cube farm. Dec 27, 2022 Full Review Bob Satuloff The Advocate Some viewers may be appalled by its heartlessness, but others will find it a cinematic acid bath that lays bare the awful truth. Jun 1, 2022 Full Review Jack Hawkins HeyUGuys Ultimately, In the Company of Men may be a meditation on personal evil. And on a note as dour as that, I'd urge you to watch In the Company of Men, a 90s indie that's truly deserving of 'hidden gem' status. Rated: 5/5 Jan 13, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
