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.

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.

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.

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.

Nick – “Your reboot speed is amazing.”

‘The Internship‘ starring Vince Vaughn (Billy) and Owen Wilson (Nick) is one of those feel good, hilarious films.

Billy and Nick’s careers as salesman came to a swift end when their employer fell through and the film follows their quest to seek new employment.

Billy was on Google searching for jobs when he had a brain wave of going for a career at Google, so Billy suggested that they both attempt to gain an internship at Google and pose up against hundreds of young, tech-savvy prodigies for future employment with Google.

The film follows their journey through the interview and screening process at Google, showing the hilarious journey that both Billy and Nick had fighting off the competition.

Along the journey the film shows Billy and Nick working amongst a team of other candidates fighting out for the elusive internship at Google. They have their ups and downs but in the end come back together to fight for what they really want. It is really one of those feel good films where everything comes together right at the end and the main characters get what they want and fully deserve, which is why in my opinion this film is a very good film.

Vince Vaughn not only starred as one of the main characters in this film he co-wrote the screenplay and wrote the story. As Vince wrote both of these aspects of the film you would fully expect there to be comedic value running throughout the entirety of the film.

Despite all of the bad reviews out there, I believe that ‘The Internship‘ is a fairly good film with streaks of comedy running throughout.
Overall I would rate The Internship an 8 out of 10.
