The Internship was directed by Shawn Levy (Date Night) and stars Vince Vaughn (Wedding Crashers) and Owen Wilson (Wedding Crashers). Vince Vaughn wrote the story and he and Jared Stern (The Watch) wrote the screenplay. This is a comedy about two middle-aged salesman who, after losing their jobs, find themselves competing with a group of young techies for a position at Google.
This movie is remarkably better than it appears on the previews and I found myself enjoying it more and more as it progressed. Sure, it's no Wedding Crashers, but it is surprisingly funny and even inspirational at times.
Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson did a good job as the two underdogs who were up against all odds to score a job at the coveted Google. The rest of the cast did a fine job as well, but Tobit Raphael, who debuted in this film, nearly stole the show as a timid college graduate named Yo-Yo. I laughed harder at some of his scenes more than anything else in the film.
Don't get me wrong. This movie is nowhere near perfect by any means. I can't even say that it's great. Sometimes the comedy misses, it has plenty of cheesy and predictable moments, and it feels like one huge advertisement for Google, but if you're looking for a feel-good comedy or a fun date movie, I would recommend this one. You'll probably want to leave the kids at home as there is quite a bit of sexual content and adult language.
If you liked The Watch, Couples Retreat, or You, Me and Dupree, you'll like this movie.
If you do see this film, watch for a couple of fun cameos. Also, to spare you from wondering, there's nothing to see after the credits.
My grade for this film: B
