** Though to be fair the actor himself stated that Chad would end in Rehab 10 years later, and sociopaths do tend to burn out (he amasses a reputation for sadism and hurting others and now no one will trust him. So even if Karma doesn't get him in the film it may catch up to him eventually.

'''''In the Company of Men''''' is a cult 1990s independent black comedy/drama film written and directed by Creator/NeilLaBute and starring Aaron Eckhart and Matt Molloy. It tells the story of two {{Jerkass}} co-workers, Chad and Howard, who have recently been dumped by their respective girlfriend and fiancée, seeking revenge against the female gender. So Chad cooks up a scheme that involves going out with and baiting an insecure young deaf woman, then breaking up with her and emotionally destroying her. Noted for its extremely realistic and casual portrayal of misogyny and its dark character study, the film received good reviews and won the Filmmakers Trophy at the Sundance Film Festival.

* AlasPoorVillain: Despite all the stuff Howard does over the course of the film, it's pretty hard not to feel sorry for him at the end when [[spoiler:Chad betrays him, gets him demoted at work, and drives him and Christine to depression]]. Unlike his partner, he DID have redeeming qualities, and a FreudianExcuse. Worse, Howard seemed to be about to make a HeelFaceTurn.
