The Internship

Vince Vaughn (also the film's co-writer) and Owen Wilson star in this comedy about two salesmen in their 40s whose careers have been torpedoed in the modern era. Out to prove they aren't obsolete and carve themselves out a future in an online world, they score an internship at Google that pits them against a battalion of brilliant college students. Gaining entrance to this technological utopia is only half the battle. Now they must compete with a group of the nation’s most elite, tech-savvy geniuses to prove that necessity really is the mother of re-invention. From director Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum).

Internship is great for employers, requiring people to give up their time with not much in the way of reward – which makes it not only this film’s subject matter but also an apt description of the mediocrity on offer. Despite appearing nothing more than a rote, predictable comedy that traded on the likeability of leads Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn (also the film’s screenwriter), The Internship still manages to disappoint as the pair sleepwalk through the film, seemingly unaware of how abjectly unfunny it is.

entertaining, light, good on a plane

A moderately entertaining movie, probably not a must see at theatre costs

Love these guys!

Whatever movies these two create you can be sure to have a laugh - I really enjoyed this film and will definitely watch it again. Highly recommend this if you want a good night in that will lift your parents.

Extremely boring ad for Google.

Lame script seen a million times. A bunch of nerds wins against all odds dressed in a 100 minute advertising flick for Google underlined by primitive acting and directed using the typical American "happy happy, pancake pancake" stupidity dripping approach. I thought of leaving the theatre several times but unfortunately stood in hope that it would get...

Really enjoyable

I must say I was pleasantly surprised and entertained by this delightful movie. Not a nice Vaughan fan, but am now!

Google looks badass

Film was funny (hence the three stars). Critique: The characters weren't engaging enough, I was more focused on the idea that Google was that badass. It was a fairly predictable film; you had the "baddy", the "boss", and the awkward "misfits"- Wilson and Vaughn were just plugged IN IT. At the end of the film I just wanted to work for Google because they...

This big-hearted underdog comedy... much like its two leads, exceedingly affable and good-natured despite being undeniably long in the tooth. The pic's unwavering charm keeps it afloat.

Eight years on from Wedding Crashers, Vaughn and Wilson successfully rekindle their irascible shtick.

A movie sorely bereft of ideas, laughs and justification for the comic duo’s undifferentiating self-regard.

A big-studio release that, from start to gaga finish, is a hosanna to a single company, its products, philosophy and implicit politics.

A flabby farce that might win a pass at the box office because it's just so cute and family friendly. But where's your edge, guys? Where are the laughs that walk a tightrope?

It's a one-liner forged into a two-hour joke.

A good premise and a good cast flounder in search of a wittier script.

A gratuitous spruik for the money-churning web giants but not without moments of wit. The duo rediscover a little of their old magic.

The real star of The Internship is Google itself, and what a self-aggrandizing diva she is.
