The Internship



Billy (Vince Vaughn) and Nick (Owen Wilson) are salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital world. Trying to prove they are not obsolete, they defy the odds by talking their way into a coveted internship at Google, along with a battalion of brilliant college students. But, gaining entrance to this 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. (c) Fox

The Internship, starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, is a fairly forgettable and half-fun comedy that was forged in the fires of mediocrity and risen to the great heights of marginal acceptability. Playing it safe at every turn, every "surprise" and "twist" is par for the course. Every average and predictable "laugh" happens right on cue, and  the conclusion brings the whole thing home for a nice soft, safe landing.  Nothing much to see here, folks. It's not awful, but with movie tickets being $10-13 each, it's wiser to be more selective with your movie viewing. 
I love both Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson in most everything. They are the most appealing draw. They never get too edgy, though, but rather play it straight down the plate. 
I appreciate the frothy positive energy and happy tone of this movie, and the theme of modern technology in our daily lives. It gives it a modern feel. I also thought the portrayal of the Google campus and company was amusing.

Maybe this one is better to rent if there is nothing else on TV that day.

  1. I really liked this movie for the most part. It was entertaining, and I think that a lot of movie goers look for movies like this. I do have one MAJOR critique though....there was a part in the movie where the characters went to a strip club. I thought that it was tasteless and brought down the whole movie. If they would have left that out, I think that the movie would have been much better and would have made more money at the box office.
