February 6, 2017
The Internship is a horrible piece of cinema, soulless, shameless and devoid of anything remotely artistic, entertaining or interesting.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
January 23, 2014
It isn't really a movie about friendship or new beginnings - it's a movie about selling Google.
June 6, 2013
I'm not sure what's more upsetting: seeing how old Vaughn, Wilson and their material have suddenly gotten; or seeing the 'Wedding Crashers' duo prostituting themselves in the confines of a campus comedy set on the campus of Google.

...The Internship is kind of a terrible movie and perhaps it's sad to think it exists while some struggling would-be genius filmmaker can't get his project made due to lack of resources...

Absurd stretches in logic aside, for a film about salesmanship, The Internship does a horrible job of selling itself as a funny (or real) movie.
June 7, 2013
The comedic magic that Wilson and Vaughn brought to the screen when paired up in the 2005 hit "Wedding Crashers" seems to have dwindled. Their interactions are still fun to watch, just not as funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
June 7, 2013
Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson deliver a pep talk to Millennials with nice, easy chemistry, but the sweetness of the message deserves a better overall vehicle.
June 7, 2013
The Internship is harmless but fails to deliver laughs worthy of "Googliness." Instead, it's more akin to Yahoo! - a functional Plan B when nothing better is available.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 7, 2013
While it's nice to have a Vaughn and Wilson buddy-up again, we can only wish they'd crashed another comedy instead.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
June 8, 2013
One of the most conventional comedies ever filmed. ... They should have called it 'Comedy Movie: The Movie.'
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
June 5, 2013
"The Internship" doesn't fail miserably, it just never takes a shot at success. It exists, and as has probably been the fate of many an intern at a huge internet company, it's forgotten about almost immediately.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
July 2, 2013
It's a testament to the duo's jazzy comic chemistry that they wring some laughs from this dated, frankly sinister premise.

Product placement is one thing; building a whole movie around the glorification of a multinational corporation is something else entirely.
Full Review | Original Score: C
June 13, 2013
Each scene builds the plot without leaving air for jokes. It's like a "perfect screenplay" as punched out by a computer program ... It's a bullet-point movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
July 31, 2013
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.
June 13, 2013
Manages to disappoint as the pair sleepwalk through the film, seemingly unaware of how abjectly unfunny it is.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 6, 2013
A movie sorely bereft of ideas, laughs and justification for the comic duo's undifferentiating self-regard.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
June 7, 2013
Vaughn and Wilson take an incredibly formulaic and improbable setup and make it somewhat enjoyable.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
June 5, 2013
A feature-length commercial filled with mediocre jokes.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 7, 2013
You can smell how desperate the guys are to make us laugh again, and it's just not a funny odor.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
