Movie Info

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

Similar to Eddie Murphy's hard right turn from daring and profane comedy to family-friendly romps, Vaughn and Wilson have gone all soft and gooey here.

It's a testament to the duo's jazzy comic chemistry that they wring some laughs from this dated, frankly sinister premise.

The Internship just might be the saddest movie of 2013. That few will realize this makes it even sadder.

It isn't really a movie about friendship or new beginnings - it's a movie about selling Google.

On the plus side, Vaughn and Wilson's reunion - let's call it Google Crashers - isn't as unwatchable as some would have you believe. On the negative, however, it's undoubtedly half an hour too long, and not nearly funny enough.

'The Internship' isn't as funny or exuberant as 'Wedding Crashers' and the plot is formulaic, but as lightweight entertainment goes it's . . . well, light and entertaining.

...in a very funny bit of salesmanship (what else?), our heroes talk their way into trying out for the gig, and the rest becomes a cornball and, at times, charming piece of fluff.

The Internship is ultimately as lazy and pointless (and overlong) a comedy that one can easily recall...

The comic business is only fitfully amusing. How many times do we need to hear Nick say 'on the line' instead of 'online'?

A by-the-numbers bromantic comedy that is essentially a feature-length advert for Google, The Internship uses the weapons-grade charm of Wilson and Vaughn to spout a corporate message.

There are bad movies, and then there are movies whose success would bode ill for cinema's future. The Internship is the latter.

Getting explicit sponsorship from Google is one thing; acting as an extended ad for Silicon Valley's finest strip joint does seem a bit seedy.

Alongside the film's increasingly irritating 'Googliness', The Internship is as silver-tongued and soulless as the rhetoric it appears to peddle.

This Wedding Crashers reunion has enough snappy dialog to keep us laughing even if the film itself feels like little more than a two-hour Google advert.

Agreeably topical, intermittently funny, occasionally moving... and arguably the biggest product placement plug of all time ...

The comedy of scam and flim-flam is very funny for 20 minutes. After that the script is bent like chair bamboo towards the kind of furniture film-goers are presumed to want for their moral and emotional comfort.

Audience Reviews for The Internship

Funny, funny stuff. It's been quite awhile since I have heartily laughed while watching a Vince Vaughn film...but this one did it for me. There is something that really works when Vaughn and Wilson do movies together. The chemistry just works so well, and is so engaging and interesting. This fun movie has a strong message about the advantages of being a bit older, and perhaps a little less techy. With experience comes knowledge, in my book. Plus, seeing the inside of a Google establishment (which in my dreams is accurate), was a whole lot of fun!!

If the goal was to pack as many comedy, feel-good film cliches into 2 hours then everyone involved did a terrific job here

Hiring them was a brilliant mistake.

Good feel good comedy! It was humorous and I could connect with the nerd references in the film which I found to be very funny. More than it was funny, it was refreshing. The film felt modern and was spot on about society and how it works today. The settings themselves will have you in awe at just how cool they are. All the characters were lovable as well and strayed from what I had first expected in a good way. I mean, it was impossible to not connect with them, if not at least one. The film contained that basic underdog story line but the way they executed this story line was different and I appreciated it. This isn't a film that has the biggest climax or heartfelt ending, but it will keep you smiling the entire time. A very entertaining movie through and through.
