Fate = opportunity. After that it's up to you.

It's beautifully composed for one thing. There's a serenity about it that I like.

That scene is one of my favorites in the entire movie. You can tell Bill absolutely crushed that drive, it's no wonder he kept playing that day. If you're having a good golf day you've got to go with it.

Personally I enjoyed it. It is not a romantic comedy though, it is a rarity for Hollywood: a movie about corporate life that is neither a satire or a polemic about evil money grubbers. Having just turned 50 I totally related to the whole layoffs, rumors, and management changes thing. The focus of th...

Sorry, forgot to log in. I'm not sure about Bob's feelings for Charlotte being all that chaste. The scene in the elevator after the fire alarm for instance. Bob nods twice at her trying to get her to come to his room. I think she doesn't because of his tryst with the singer, otherwise they might hav...

I enjoyed "In Good Company", it's rare to see a movie about corporate life featuring a character with a functional family. The Alex character could have been played by anyone as far as I was concerned, that subplot only interested me in terms of how it affected the dynamic between the two male leads...

Very interesting post although I think you are giving Sofia too much credit in some ways. LIT was shot in just 27 days and I have written off most of the continuity errors to that. Once the filming is over and you decide to rearrange scenes you're stuck with the attendant inconsistencies (Charlotte ...

LOL, so true, so true. Those titles comprise about half the threads concerning LIT. The other half consist of people trying to figure out what Bob whispered at the end. They either can't rest until they think they have the answer or they don't understand that it was intended strictly for Charlotte.

I noticed the incessant giggling on about my 5th viewing of the movie. I happen to love LIT but it does get annoying. My main question would be was she directed to do all that giggling by Sofia Coppola, who has what amounts to a schoolgirl crush on Murray. If you watch the making of feature on the D...

The whole Bob/Lydia thing was poorly constructed by Sofia Coppola in my opinion. Bob is probably in his 50's and has been married for 25 years, but that one kid on the phone sounds awfully young. So unless Lydia was 15 when they got married Coppola was clumsy there. She also gets the time difference...

It's painful to meet and connect with someone but because of unfortunate timing not be able to further explore what could have been. You just have to hope that someday you will meet a potential soulmate when you both are able to completely explore the possibilities. LIT has turned into one of those ...

On the front page of this site there is a LiT Extras link on the left hand side. Click on that and then click on the translation for Bob's commercial.

"So what are you doing here?"

"Couple of things: Taking a break from my wife, forgetting my son's birthday, and getting paid two million dollars to endorse a whiskey when I could be doing a play somewhere."

"Oh."
