Name: The Internship
Running Time (minutes): 119
Description: Billy (Vince Vaughn) and Nick (Owen Wilson) are salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital world. Trying to prove they are not obsolete, they defy the odds by talking their way into a coveted internship at Google, along with a battalion of brilliant college students. But, gaining entrance to this utopia is only half the battle. Now they must compete with a group of the nation’s most elite, tech-savvy geniuses to prove that necessity really is the mother of re-invention.
Stars: Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, Rose Byrne
Pff, boring. Cheesy. Cheap. Waste of time. I liked the protagonists at the beginning, but my dislike and irritation with them grew after 20 minutes and I really disliked them at the end, didn’t even want them to succeed. I did like Rosa Byrne and Neha, which incidentally is a nice name. The ‘bad guy’ was unconvincing and felt like a forced necessity rather than an addition. His character was too ridiculous to even call ridiculous. I mean, really, what kind of an intern would behave like Graham? Seriously?
Christophe Beck’s score was functional, but, as usual, nothing special. A reference to John Williams’ Quidditch or Harry Potter music would have been nice during the ‘Quidditch’ game, but I’m probably hoping for the impossible here. The Fame music at the end was nice, though.
