The Internship (2013)


The-Internship-UK-Poster-585x444“People have a deep distrust of machines. Have you seen Terminator? Or 2? Or 3? Or 4?” – Nick Campbell

Number of Times Seen – 1 (6 Dec 2013)

Brief Synopsis – Two unemployed salesmen join a Google Summer Internship when they need a new job.

My Take on it – The thing about Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson movies is that they either directly hit or miss their target completely.

This one, IMHO, hits the audience right on the mark.  We all know going in that the plot will be thin, but the characters are what make this movie fun.  Vaughn and Wilson completely nail it here and their wacky “older” interns are just what the we need to see.

This movie shows how the younger generation has adapted very well to technology and the next generation up is almost there, but not completely.  Those of us in that latter generation (myself included) know enough about computers and technology to move along in life, but are lacking a bit of the teen “pop-culture”.

This movie takes both of the generations and tries to find a way to meld them together and get them to complement each other in order to show that we all need each other in order to find a way to succeed.

As a child of the 80’s, I loved all the obscure (and direct) references in this movie to that decade which include Star Wars, Flashdance,  Back to the Future and Terminator.  Equally I enjoyed the 21st Century references of Hunger Games, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings references.

Great zany cameo by Will Farrell.

Bottom Line – Very funny Vaughn-Wilson pairing. Great meld of 80’s and 21st Century pop-culture references.  Very entertaining. Recommended!

Rating – Globe Worthy
