The Intern Reviews

April 22, 2019
A well-acted and sometimes moving tale of friendship and life lessons is let down by its own burgeoning desire to appear 'with it'.

Robert Deniro and Anne Hathaway are really charming in their roles.

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.

Nancy Meyers' movies are nice and feel-good, and so effortless that you wonder if she strives for more.

I can't get the antiquated misogynistic, paternalistic norms out of my head.

Strong work from Robert De Niro is wasted in a screenplay that is way too overstuffed with drama.

De Niro and Hathaway are on good form, though the film's attitude to working women is bizarre. You can see why companies want retired interns - with their final salary pensions they're the only people who can afford to work unpaid in New York.

The film lacked the heart and the conviction that I was expecting, given the weighty premise. The missed opportunity is frustrating, especially from a film that has so much going for it.

The Brooklyn setting looks fabulous, with everyone living a glossy mag lifestyle, but nothing about the situation rings true and the comedy is cavity-causing sweet.
August 21, 2018
"The Intern" couldn't decide what the story truly is about and it just becomes a dull mess with no direction and focal point.
June 13, 2018
Hathaway and De Niro do some wonderful work. The two have a genuine, and dare I say surprising chemistry-specifically in scenes where they don't discuss their jobs.
May 30, 2018
In a plot littered with dramatic shortcuts, there are mildly amusing, well-observed moments.

The Intern is a typical Nancy Meyers movie with some of her work's usual virtues, but also all of her usual flaws, this time perhaps more pronounced than ever.
December 3, 2017
Jules (Hathaway) creates a booming business, but a group of older men in suits thinks she needs an older man in a suit to run her company. So, who shows up to provide her with the guidance and backbone she needs? An older man in a suit. Disappointing.

What makes it special is the performance of the leads -- Anne Hathaway and De Niro are simply gorgeous together and, no, definitely not in that way. There's no May-September nonsense.
October 14, 2017
The problem with The Intern is that it's always about the changes Jules can make to better fit into traditional ideals of womanhood, and not how Jules can redefine those roles and definitions to make the world work for her.
August 16, 2017
Unfortunately, [The Intern] contains too many discordant pieces, resulting in a story that is largely tone-deaf to the message it is trying to share.
June 27, 2017
The Intern is repulsive.
August 13, 2016
A charming and simple drama comedy with some genuine sincerity and heart to it.
July 22, 2016
There's something powerful in that, in the simple fact that The Intern is so sympathetic to its older character-so resolutely on the side of a person who might, in other contexts, be dismissed or ignored or, as is so often the case, invisible.
