Despite the January lull in the release of big Hollywood movies, Los Angeles Times movie critic Kenneth Turan says there's at least one gem to be found.

In Good Company features good writing and strong performances from stars Dennis Quaid, Topher Grace and Scarlett Johansson.

Writer/director Paul Weitz has had past success with About a Boy, which he directed with brother Chris. That film was a quiet, intelligent departure from the Weitz brothers' early success with the teen romp American Pie.
