Charming easy going comedy relying on the cast of Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, the script and the acting are very generic and offers nothing new. Still at the end it entertaining and delivers a few laughs.
The Internship is tiresome, even by the modest standards of Frat-pack comedies. However it doesn't even have any kind of edge, it is painfully middle of the road and is filled with irritating overacting. It failed the laugh test, I counted two titters.
These two boneheads haven't made a good film together since Wedding Crashers. The Internship is a very bad attempt at comedy and more of a film made for Vaughn and Wilson to prove they are good hearted people instead of obnoxious idiots. Exactly what nobody wants to see with these two. Entertaining in a nineties comedy sort of way with nothing original in "attempts at humor" and some very average storytelling in the competitive drama department. Why do directors think that getting children or nerds drunk is a funny enough concept to carry a good chunk of their feature? It's almost a given that any new comedy with children and adults must contain a scene with strippers and alcohol.
Are Vince and Owen up to their same antics and characters of movies past....? YES but at the end of the day this movie does hit its mark throughout the film. The Internship has heart and it is a cliche underdog type of movie but it left me with a smile and is at least worth a viewing.
Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson tone down their respective fast-talking and schlubby buddy routines as two middle-aged nobodies who land tech internships at Google based on sheer salesmanship. This mid-life crisis movie is actually rather uplifting in that good intentions and collaborative problem solving triumph over cutthroat post-college millennials who typify the adage "youth is wasted on the young."
