"Gary Cole plays him at just the right comic pitch, high but not high enough to leap the line that separates satire from caricature. A veteran of stage and movies as well as TV, Cole is easily the most impressive performer in the picture." — Susan Stark, Detroit News
"Cole as the creepy boss does a spot-on reading of a glad-handing, amoral corporate weasal." — Dennis King, Tulsa World
"Gary Cole's silver-tongued snake-like boss is just perfect." — Bob Thompson, Toronto Sun
"The boss (is) played with an oily purr by the superb Gary Cole." — Chris Garcia, Austin American-Statesman
"Cole proves there's more than Mike Brady in his pitch-perfect comic arsenal." — Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
"Gary Cole, from A Simple Plan, delivers the best performance of the movie. As Lumbergh, Peter's main boss, Cole gives a chillingly gracious interpretation of a boss who appears compassionate on the surface but underneath is all of life's annoying bosses rolled into one." — Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
