I don’t normally watch movies with Owen Wilson by choice, but there’s something about Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson together that allows me to stomach them for a short period of time. This is just another cute, feel-good comedy which every once in a while we need. I particularly loved this movie because Dylan O’ Brien is in the movie. He later went onto to star in the Maze Runner trilogy after this. I found this movie relatable because I know the feeling first hand of being in a collective group of misfits.
A lot of people remarked that The Internship was really an advertisement to work for Google. This tactic is nothing new. Jurrasic Park is notorious for its heavy use of advertisements. In this instance, I don’t think that advertising to work for Google is necessarily a bad thing. The fact that the film crosses the line between advertisement and entertainment is what gives it such a low score. Vince Vaughn is a bit over the top with the dialogue, and it borders on cheesy rather than funny.
You’d be surprised to know that you can show a strip club scene in a film that’s rated PG 13. I’ve noticed a lot more swearing being allowed too. I don’t mind it, but I remember how made parents would get whenever that happened.
I really liked the scene where each had to come up with an app. I’ve always wanted to create an app and they make it look easier. It looks really fun to work at Google, but I’m a nerd so what’s fun to me might be incredibly boring to you.
If you watch Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson movies on a regular basis then I think you will enjoy this film. It’s one of those films that is just okay. It’s not bad, but it’s not good either.
My Score: 5/10
