The Internship

The Internship is an old-fashioned 1970s/1980s "slobs vs snobs" comedy updated to the internet era. The most similar film is Rodney Dangerfield's Back to School, and those two films are very similar indeed. In the Dangerfield film, a middle-aged Rodney went back to college and, although originally a fish out of water, eventually won acceptance because of his generous, common sense approach to life, even managing to win a competition unexpectedly, and became a source of inspiration and fun to the kids in their late teens and early twenties. In this film, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson enroll in a Google internship program, and ... well, the rest of the sentence is exactly the same as the previous one, starting with the world "although," changing only the singular verbs to plurals because it take two guys to replace Rodney. Vince and Owen end up getting paired up with the other outcasts in a grueling competition for a small number of jobs, but their team eventually coalesces, and the kids on their team all get pushed on their way toward happier and fuller lives.

There are no surprises along the way, and the film has no original take on the premise, but there are a few laughs, a few cathartic moments, a little inspiration, and some good-natured banter between Vaughn, Wilson and the supporting players. It's all very familiar, but at least for me, that means it's comfortingly familiar.

The nudity consists of five minutes in a strip club. None of the topless women are identified.

  • * White asterisk: expanded format.

  • * Blue asterisk: not mine.

  • No asterisk: it probably sucks.
