Conclusion: The Internship proves that Google is a fun but demanding workplace. We learn that a college degree no longer guarantees employment to the youth of today and that muggles can play Quidditch. This film is not nearly as funny as Wedding Crashers , but if you are a fan of Vaughn and Wilson – you will probably enjoy this too. Aside from a trip to a strip club, the unrated version of this film is very tame.
Summary: Though The Internship may not go down as the most memorable film in Hollywood history, it still is worth giving a shot on Redbox or Netflix. There’s something about the chemistry between Wilson and Vaughn that makes it nearly impossible to not be left in your recliner or love seat grinning.
Conclusion: The Internship is an attempt from Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson to reclaim the magic that they realized with Wedding Crashers . While there are glimpses of that over the course of the film, it feels like the two people most vital to the success of The Internship do not want to be part of it. Technically, the disc is decent but unspectacular as on the bonus material side of things.
Conclusion: 'The Internship' is a dull comedy with great talent. It's a by the books film with no real life to it. The video presentation is top notch, while the audio sounds decent enough. The extras are about average here too. It's not the best film, but some of you might enjoy it. I'd rent this well before even considering a purchase.
Conclusion: High concept only takes The Internship so far, and unfortunately that's not far enough. This film is so resolutely rut bound it almost defies description. Vaughn and Wilson make an extremely appealing star duo, and many of the supporting cast turn in nicely colorful performances, but the screenplay is just a mass of clichés without a gut busting punchline anywhere to be found.
Excerpt: Expecting lightning to strike the same spot twice is foolish. Part of me believes Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson understand this, which explains why they waited nearly a decade to follow up the white-hot success of their last collaboration, Wedding Crashers . Don’t get the band back together until you’ve found the right tune to sing, right?
Excerpt: Product placement is one thing; building a whole movie around the glorification of a multinational corporation is something else entirely. Essentially a feature-length sponsored post, The Internship casts Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson as middle-aged salesmen who find themselves competing against braniac college kids for a job at Google.
