An insightful comedy about the relationship between a 50-year-old businessman and his new, 26-year-old boss. Dan Foreman is headed for a shakeup. He is demoted from head of ad sales for a major magazine when the company he works for is acquired in a corporate takeover. His new boss, Carter is half his age--a business school prodigy who preaches corporate Synergy. While Dan develops clients through handshake deals and relationships, Carter cross-promotes the magazine with the cell phone division and "Krispity Krunch," an indeterminate snack food under the same corporate umbrella. Both men are going through turmoil at home. Dan has two daughters--Alex, age 18, and Jana, age 16--and is shocked when his wife tells him she's pregnant with a new child. Between college tuition, the mortgage and a new baby, Dan can't afford to lose his job in the wave of corporate layoffs. Carter, in the meanwhile, is dumped by his wife of seven months just as he gets his promotion. Dan and Carter's uneasy friendship is thrown into jeopardy when Carter falls for, and begins an affair with, Dan's daughter Alex. Weitz's examination of life's surprises, ironies and coincidences combine to form Synergy.

Scarlett on her character I play the kind of girl I could have been if I didn't have this job or choose this path. She's a New York University student, she's my age and she's a junior tennis champion - she's very cool, very relaxed and very honest.
Scarlett on the script It read like a Neil Simon play. It was a really great ensemble and all the characters were explored.
Scarlett on Topher Grace He's a really great, young actor, which is rare. I think he could have gone very campy and obnoxious with the role, because at times, his character can be quite jerky. But he really had this wonderful balance between being this sort of sensitive, dorky loser — a painfully embarrassing guy — and then also being this really confident, sexy guy who knew what he was doing at his job and could take charge and who was a leader.
Topher Grace When we finished our make-out scene — which was, like, all day, 'cause I kept asking, 'One more! One more, I think I can nail it this time!' — I said to her, sarcastically, 'What's the best screen kiss you've ever had?' And I guess that she didn't get that I was being sarcastic and she said, 'Um, you.' I was like. 'Oh my God, stop the presses, are you serious?' And then I made an announcement to the entire crew: 'Excuse me, everyone. Quiet! Scarlett Johansson said that I am her best screen kiss.'
