I will probably get a ton of troll comments and bad ratings, but i actually enjoyed this. It is a chilled out comedy about 2 computer illiterate guys trying to adapt to the fast growing future. It was really good. Quite a few funny scenes, but it is more of an eyeopener too. One scene mentioning about kids going to college for 4 years and been unable to get jobs afterwards. It really does make you reflect on the world around you too.

I enjoyed this, even if nobody else did.

I personally recommend this film. 5/5.

Long review: Despite the 21st Century spin, 'The Internship' is a classic fish-out-of-water comedy. Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson play two unemployed salesmen who apply for internships at Google. When the applicants are divided into teams, no-one picks them, so they are forced to form a team with the other 'outcasts', to undertake a series of tasks to determine which team will get the jobs.
Will the group have to face humiliation at the hands of nasty brit Max Minghella before coming together as a team? Will Vaughn and Wilson teach their tech-savvy but unworldly team-mates to live, laugh and love? Will the pair finally win the respect of the crusty dean/law professor/Google head honcho?
Of course they will!
This is Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson's first team-up since 'Wedding Crashers', and, as in that film, Owen Wilson gets to be the romantic(ish) lead, while the 'broader' comedy is centred around Vince Vaughn. Although 'The Internship' is nowhere near as raunchy as 'Wedding Crashers' it does feature a scene in a lapdancing club, and enough swearing to push it close to a '15' rating (in my opinion).
Although I enjoyed 'The Internship', I never found it 'laugh out loud' funny. However, it's certainly better than the reviews suggest. It may never be considered a classic, but it's a fun, feelgood movie.
Short review: 'Revenge of the Nerds' meets 'The House Bunny'.

I watched this film for the first time on a plane, which should tell you how much I enjoyed it if I went and bought it after a plane viewing!

In all honesty, I really enjoyed this film. Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughan have that undeniable chemistry, but we all knew that already, so what do they bring to their latest film? For me, it is a genuinely thought provoking and highly amusing film. I'm someone who is a little older than the supporting cast, works in a technical role for a software company and has managed to get that first foot on the ladder. As a comedy therefore, it is particularly refreshing to see it tackle a number of real emerging issues, like how the relevance of degrees are diminishing because everyone has one, and that not everyone who works in the field fills the typical geek stereotype. Rose Byrne's talents are also put to good use, demonstrating how easy it is to get lost in the world of work when a company is able to provide such an immersive culture, and that you shouldn't entirely write off your 20's and 30's in a reckless pursuit of career success.

Wilson and Vaughan don't just have that chemistry with each other, they bond really well with the supporting cast. There is no real weak link, and some fantastic cameos by John Goodman, Will Ferrell and Rob Riggle. I'm also impressed that for a film of regular length, they managed to fit in so much character growth from start to finish. The story is that classic cliche of older generations being out of touch with technology, and whilst exaggerated in parts, it does an excellent job at not making it feel like one of those classic cliches.

Although nothing new about this movie, setting it at Google HQ was a good idea. Once the story got going I could not help thinking how very 'Average Joe's' it all was as the underdog team battled against the better team and ultimately triumphing in the end. The only difference being Dodgeball was a lot funnier. There are funny moments in the film but nothing outlandish. Owen Wilson was good though in the character he does well.

Two dinosaur salesmen (Vince Vaughn/ Owen Wilson) find themselves as interns at Google. They are fish out of water as they have to deal with the youth and terminology of the tech world. They are divided into teams with our duo on the misfit team which leads to formulaic results.

This is a fun film which doesn't offend. The humor is not overwhelmingly laugh out loud, by rather tritely funny. That is not to say it is bad, but simply lacks originality.

Worth a view. Makes for a good rental.

Parental Guide: 2 f-bombs, No sex or nudity. Strip club scene.

You know where you are with a film that stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. Vince Vaughn plays Vince Vaughn - loud, bullish giant who dreams big. Owen Wilson plays Owen Wilson - genteel fop, who flutter his eyelashes over his wonky nose and becomes endearing to women.
This is not an Oscar winner. This is not a deep-thinking thriller. This is a light-hearted comedy about two losers who get to do an internship at Google. It's not laugh out loud funny, but it is funny.
It's a Sunday afternoon film, rather than a Saturday night movie - Worth a watch, but not worth making a night of it.
