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.

Wedding Crashers now crashing Google! Awesome! I really have big loughs and
great team working lessons watching this movie!

Memorable quotes:

- Nick Campbell: "People have a deep distrust of machines. Have you seen Terminator? Or 2? Or 3? Or 4?"

Nick: You got us a job at Google?
Billy: Well, not a job job. It’s an interview for an internship that could lead to a job. Nick, this might be the last chance that we’ve got.

Mr. Chetty: We have rules. The red paddle indicates no, the green paddle indicates yes.
Mr. Chetty: Having a beer with your boss.
[all interns raise their red paddles, except Billy and Nick]
Billy: You want to grab a cold one with me, you let me know.
Mr. Chetty: I will not be grabbing a cold one with you.
Billy: You get high?
[moves on to next rule]
Mr. Chetty: Dating a fellow intern.
[all other interns raise their red paddle, Billy raises his green paddle]
Billy: Yes.
Mr. Chetty: No.
Mr. Chetty: This is Google, not Match.com
Billy: So we’ll say “no” to love?
Mr. Chetty: We’ll say “no” to love.
Any questions?
Billy: Is a one-night-stand considered dating?

The ending has a great lesson on the weird concept of "googliness", that I understood
is something beyond normal intelligence to grasp. A great way to spend some hours and have fun.

I have always wanted to see this movie! Soo glad I did. It's Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson on the same screen, who wouldn't want to see this?! They both seem to have the same wit and charming qualities, which makes them equally loveable and enjoyable to watch on-screen. Quite a mix of characters and various moments in this movie, something to watch in every scene, a character to love and laugh with at times too.
Vince Vaughn is a pretty clever and extremely talented guy. This is written by him! I love everything he's done so far. He's quickly becoming my favourite celebrity! Really enjoyed watching him with Owen Wilson, I imagine they bounced off each other during filming this.
I love that each character has their own little storyline going on, and you see them flourish and develop in ways you wouldn't expect throughout.
This is definitely worth the watch if you like to laugh, or even if you are just into computers.
Massive 10 stars for this one. :)

TOP 500 REVIEWERon 21 November 2013
Billy McMahon (Vaughn) & Nick Campbell (Wilson) are wrist watch salesman who lose they're jobs due to the digital age of clocks on phones & tablets etc... making them obsolete. Jobless, with a lack of skills, awash in a World of few job opportunities & competition with walls of credentials. They begin the arduous task of looking for new jobs. But by a chance find on the internet, Billy decides to enroll them in an internship contest for Google. Blagging they're way in with salesman spiel, the trouble is, they know nothing about technology. Comedy & mayhem ensue.

Having seen mostly low ratings for this film, we were skeptical about this movie. Happily however, it is much better than we expected, and more enjoyable than films the pair have done in the past e.g The Dilemma &Hall Pass. The film's constant theme is about how behind the times & dinosaur like, Billy & Nick are, lacking the diplomacies & education that the people half they're age have & struggle to find jobs. Thrown into a mental hunger games with a group of nerds that nobody else wanted, to compete across a number of tasks with the victor getting the jobs. Billy & Nick fight against the prejudice of being fishes out of water & looked down upon. But bringing they're life experience to the group, motivating the sombre bunch, to prove they're worth. With some romance & silly comedy along the way, cracking along at a decent pace, in & around the eye catching Google HQ.

Although it is somewhat cliche & predictable in places, following Billy & Nick's exploits is never the less fun, as you root for them against the archetype snobby & up himself opposition, Graham Hawtrey, played well by Max Minghella (Agora). Whose character happens to be English *sigh*. The group bonding is very familiar fair, as each character has a flaw, and the lead duo slowly helping them become more self reliant & believing in themselves. It's that kind of life bonding experience, seeing them each grow is heartwarming & funny. Vince Vaughn & Owen Wilson are both playing to they're usual strengths. Vaughn the fast talking salesman who can sell snow to the Inuit's & Wilson the quieter one with an eye for the ladies, given a romance sub plot, were both solid in they're comfort zones. While the support cast were passable, with an array of quirky characters. Aasif Mandvi (The Mystic Masseur) as the disapproving Google intern overseer was both funny & scathing, Rose Byrne (Damages) offering up stern resistance to Nick in the love interest role, while cameos from Rob Riggle (21 Jump Street) as a mobility scooter salesman with an eye for the older ladies, John Goodman (The Big Lebowski) as the ex-employer delivering the hard truth's & Will Ferrell (Step Brothers) as a mattress salesman with a bottom fetish, added the funnies outside of Google HQ. Google co-creator Sergey Brin makes a brief cameo greeting the duo as they leave the HQ.

In conclusion, underneath the cliches & predictable story, lies a group of characters that you can't help but want to succeed, and root for them all the way in this enjoyable light hearted comedy with a sprinkling of romance. Contains strong language. Recommended.

This was a most unexpected good versus bad movie for me, I expected Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn to do well together as they have in previous movies that they have done; but Vince Vaughn excelled himself with the idea and script for this one. He even put a horrible character in that (The mattress man) I hate to watch so he made it easy for me to like it. Laughed outloud a few times as well. great.

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. Happily, it also explores the role reversal, that the younger generation haven't experienced what many older generations have by their age, and indeed the benefits of soft skills. This is what I think gives it an edge, it shows both generations are capable of benefitting the other, given the chance.

Overall, I know this film won't be everyone. These two, the focus on Google and the tried and tested comedy format tend to polarize people, but I encourage you to give it a try. It's a smarter comedy than it initially lets on if you listen to its message, with an uplifting and thoughtful story. Instead of playing to those age old cliches, it tries to challenge them, which results in both a touching and amusing comedy.

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.

This is, at its heart, a vintage "college comedy". There are nerds, jocks (sort of), underdogs, stern authority figures, craziness, and in the end... well, I'm not going to say that in case you can't work it out, but it's pretty standard stuff. If you're expecting a semi-sentimental musing on relevance in your 40s, there is certainly a bit of that but it doesn't dominate.

Google itself is present throughout, and while you can take this as propaganda for working at Google, it's surprisingly low on noticeable product placement and in some ways paints Google negatively: implying that the managers can be overbearing, some of them seem pretty clueless, that powerful figures are basically unable to communicate, and of course that they have bizarre hiring practices.

So, it's not a waste of time.
