All Critics (191) | Top Critics (44) | Fresh (115) | Rotten (76)

  • The Intern presents a heartfelt multi-generational story without harping too hard on its traditional, yet fun heartfelt tropes.

    November 13, 2019 | Rating: 7.7/10 | Full Review…
  • A well-acted and sometimes moving tale of friendship and life lessons is let down by its own burgeoning desire to appear 'with it'.

    April 22, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Robert Deniro and Anne Hathaway are really charming in their roles.

    April 19, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • The Intern is very enjoyable and is good at loosening the heartstrings a little. It's not a romance between De Niro and Hathaway (thankfully), but serves its purpose well in being a feel-good, character-driven film.

    April 11, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Nancy Meyers' movies are nice and feel-good, and so effortless that you wonder if she strives for more.

Audience Reviews for The Intern

  • Oct 20, 2016
    I was surprised how much I liked it! This is not great cinema, and will probably be forgotten long before Citizen Kane, or Casablanca, or Cries and Whispers, but it was fun to watch and we enjoyed it, start to finish. It was somewhat sappy, highly predictable, and entirely without anything that would make you question its PG-13 MPAA rating. But these were people you could see yourself sitting down to have a meal with and know that you would enjoy it. Anne Hathaway was radiantly beautiful as the high-powered entrepreneur of a wildly successful eCommerce fashion house, whose marriage and home life was suffering, while Robert DeNiro came across as a father figure while serving as her intern. It was good to see Rene Russo and Linda Lavin and to hear Mary Kay Place's voice, as each played small, but important roles. I hesitate to call it a romantic comedy, as the two leads were never in danger of becoming lovers (although one would have to say they each came to value the other as more than colleagues) and there wasn't a lot of laugh out loud moments, but the overall tone of the film left one feeling good about the people and their relationships.

    Well casted and directed with an array of interesting characters and situations which are not completely predictable. A fun time.

    Veteran filmmaker Nancy Meyers, sure knows how to utilise her film's greatest asset -- the great Robert De Niro. This is a movie that is missing something but makes up for it with a lot of charm.

    Pretty underwhelming. It was okay, but at two hours, wears it's welcome out and has an extremely abrupt ending. I hated the husband twist and I didn't think either of them were convincing as parents to a child that old. At lest it wasn't completely predictable, but once was enough watching this.
