"The Internship" is less a pageant of Google's products and services than an agitprop of the company's corporate philosophy and culture.

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

You don't need a heart to like this movie. You need an MBA.

'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.

August 17, 2013 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.

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.

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 ...

A laboured, mawkish plug for Google.

Not funny and very predictable.

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.

Enjoyable, frequently funny comedy enlivened by winning comic performances from Vaughn and Wilson and a strong support cast ...
