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 rated version: 2 f-bombs, No sex or nudity. Strip club scene.
Since one of the terms of acceptance is that a prospect must be enrolled in college, Billy enrolls the pair at the University of Phoenix which Billy calls, "the Harvard of on-line colleges." They show up on the Mountain View campus and are surrounded by 20-something geniuses. When 5 or 6 person teams are picked, our heroes are left with a group no one wants to associate with. I'm not sure why as no one seems to know anyone else, so how this group is shunned is beyond me.
No matter, quirky they are but they are also devoid of social skills. That of course is where salesmen Billy and Nick excel. Will it be enough however to win the competition which means being automatically hired by Google? The charm of the movie is the patter between Billy and Nick and Vaughn and Wilson are masters. While I wouldn't call the movie laugh-out-loud-hilarious, I would say there are plenty funny scenes.
Rose Byrne makes an appearance as a potential love interest and boss for Nick. Aasif Mandvi is the Google man in charge of the internship program and Max Minghella is the snobby leader of a competitive team. There is nothing new here. A couple over their head guys with hearts of gold and a fun personality, teach the techies a thing or two about life outside the physics books. I'll likely forget about this movie pretty quickly but I did have a good time.
Vaughn and Wilson play salesman whose company goes out of business abruptly, and they find themselves without prospects or hope. In a stroke of desperation/ inspiration, Vaughn lands them interviews for an internship with Google. Despite any technological savvy or skills, they find themselves engaged in a team competition among other interns with the prospect of full-time employment in the balance. Vaughn and Wilson definitely channel their fast-talking characters from Wedding Crashers and have a real chemistry.
A lot of the humor (and there is a lot of it) comes from the culture clash between these non-tech salesmen and the young interns who are incredibly advanced technically, but have no people skills or experience in the "real world."
While there are a few plot cliches involved, there are a number of unexpected situations, and you will laugh and smile your way through it all. There is a lot to enjoy, whether you are on the tech end of the scale or the non-tech end. I imagine that both groups will laugh at different things, but there is really humor for everyone.
While not as outrageously or consistently funny as "Wedding Crashers", this movie was enough fun that I would recommend paying to see it in the theater, and that is (in this age of high ticket prices for mediocre movies) my standard for a good movie. "The Internship" is a light, fun film that deserves to be a box office success.
When you want a laugh, you really won't go wrong seeing the Internship. Recommended.
