The Internship is a typical Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson comedy. Two middle-aged sales guys lose their jobs and go for internships at Google despite a complete lack of any computer skills or knowledge. It’s solid and worth seeing. It’ll give you some laughs, but don’t expect to laugh the whole way through. It has its funny moments, and there are some heart-warming plot lines and lessons.
This movie follows a current film trend of grappling with what it means to grow older. As the baby boomer generation is getting older, movie plots are catering to them. (Compare such movies as Skyfall.) The Internship teaches that older generations still have much to offer, especially the ability to understand and relate to people face-to-face. They prove to be a valuable asset to teams full of younger computer wizards who lack any social skills.
