Actors: Aaron Eckhart, Matt Malloy, Stacy Edwards

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of In the Company of Men

Two junior executives, 10 years out of college, are headed on a six-week business trip to a branch office in another city. Mousey Howard (Malloy) reveals to more assertive Chad (Eckhart) that he's just been dumped by his girlfriend and he's bitter. Chad says he's in the same boat and they ought to get some revenge for all the pain women cause. He suggests they find and romance a woman on their trip, then cruelly dump her. Dubious Howard agrees, and they choose a beautiful secretary in the branch office who also happens to be deaf. This 1997 film, writer-director Neil LaBute's debut (he would later do "Your Friends and Neighbors" and "Nurse Betty") disturbed a lot of viewers with its sardonic view of the more poisonous side of male bonding. It's a small but sharp-tongued and impressive movie.
