In the Company of Men (1997)

IN THE COMPANY OF MEN is thought-provoking.  And, at times, outrag-
eously funny.  This black, black comedy stars Aaron Eckhart and 
Matt Malloy as a pair of junior executives, on six-week assignment 
at a regional office, where they scheme to seduce and later dump an 
unsuspecting young woman.  The target:  a shy, deaf secretary 
(Stacy Edwards) down the hall.  The catch:  one of them starts to 
have feelings for her.  Though the lack of camera movement is more 
than a little tedious-- the movie feels like a filmed play-- the 
script is a knowing study of abuse, power, and the illusions of in-
timacy.  Live dangerously and take a date.  Written and directed by 
Neil LaBute.  (Rated "R"/96 min.)

Grade: B
