About the Movie
In the movie ‘The Company Men’, Bobby Walker (Ben Affleck) is a young executive at a shipping and manufacturing conglomerate. He has the American dreams: great job, beautiful family, shiny Porsche in the garage. He works hard and is on the fast track to the top. But all on a sudden his dreams are broken down into pieces. His company goes through a few rounds of layoffs, so Bobby and colleagues Phil (Chris Cooper) and Gene (Tommy Lee Jones) find themselves on the unemployment line. Bobby tries to get back into a busy job life, but he couldn’t set his executive skills anywhere. Soon he realises that there is more to life than chasing the bigger and better deals. As the year unfolds, all three must redefine their lives as they struggle to survive in a hostile post-career landscape.
The movie released in December 10, 2010 (USA). It made 8.1 million USD in the box office.

The Company Men Ending
Phil Woodward: Dress code pretty lax around here?
Bobby Walker: You should see casual-Friday…
Bobby Walker: We work as hard in here every day as we did when we were trying to get a job, we’ll be alright. What’s the worst thing they can do, fire us?
Phil Woodward: You know the worst part?
Phil Woodward: The world didn’t stop. The newspaper still came every morning, the automatic sprinklers went off at six. Jerry next door still washed his car every Sunday.
Phil Woodward: My life ended and nobody noticed.
HR Director: I’m confident all these dismissals will stand up under legal scrutiny.
Gene McClary: What about ethical scrutiny.
HR Director: We’re not breaking any laws, Gene.
Gene McClary: I guess I always assumed were trying for a higher standard than that, Paul.
Phil Woodward: I’ve got a kid in college and another one going in the fall. I won’t go back to the factory floor. I’ll take an AK-47 to this place first.
