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'.
April 19, 2019
Robert Deniro and Anne Hathaway are really charming in their roles.
April 11, 2019
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.
January 18, 2019
Strong work from Robert De Niro is wasted in a screenplay that is way too overstuffed with drama.
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.
October 26, 2017
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.
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.
June 12, 2016
It's the kind of compulsively watchable film you'll be helpless to resist when it shows up on cable TV.
May 3, 2016
The Intern has a broader appeal with a cross-generation story staring Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro, but it retains Meyer's warm tone, upper-middle setting and dedication to immaculately decorated homes.
April 6, 2016
Fortunately, this is a film geared towards its older characters (something Meyers ... excels at). De Niro hasn't had it so good in years.
April 5, 2016
Easygoing, likeable and perhaps a little too safe, The Intern is not Meyers' best work to date but, it's reliable and entertaining. What more do you need?

Those of us who were never cool young guys live with an enduring hope: that someday we'll be cool old guys. It's a fantasy embodied in the flesh - specifically, in the gloriously creased, proudly aging flesh of 72-year-old Robert De Niro
March 7, 2016
It could so easily have turned into a farce, but director Nancy Meyers has gone for an intelligent character study instead, concentrating on the unexpected friendship and how it makes the two people grow. It is entertaining and aimed at adults.
February 25, 2016
The Intern doesn't have a huge amount to say about the issues it touches on; it's generally happy to let its two charismatic leads simply hang out together. It's a li ttle cutesy at times, and overlong), but it's not without its charms.
February 25, 2016
It's sad, too, because De Niro brings an amiable twinkling charm to the role... Instead we're stuck with misogyny, dramedy and snivelling.
January 19, 2016
The Intern is a smart, funny, and surprisingly touching film, anchored by first-rate performances from DeNiro and Hathaway.
December 30, 2015
De Niro and Hathaway's very real chemistry is enjoyable and transcends The Intern's many shortcomings.
