Enjoyable modern day film

Few funny bits and enjoyable laugh out loud moments, on the whole a little predictable and cliche but i didn't expect much else. Overall 3/5. Not a must-see though

The Devil Wears Prada says hello

Compared to The Devil Wears Prada, this film is too superficial and too feel-good.

Not something that I would chose to see again. Didn't have any substance to it.

Made by an intern

Bad, horrible and barely watch-able. Predictable, Uninspiring and mediocre at best! It was written like an intern wrote it. The acting was like watching an intern act it. I'm sorry if you paid to see this movie. Really, I am! And I like Robert and Anne! Whhhhy?

Blah

Strange... no real "conflict", which made the film pretty boring in general. While it did get off to a charming start, the second half just kind of rolled along - with the exception of a rather amusing break-and-enter sequence, which was then undone directly afterwards by a super-cringey bar scene between the culprits and Anne Hathaway's character (she...

A quiet charmer

Often these films with big stars and massive promotional budgets only guarantee that you’ve seen the best jokes – all two of them - in the trailer before you even see the movie. But De Niro and Hathaway’s characters are so likeable and the direction and script so good that they pull it off.

Enjoyable

The Intern is an easy watch. A light comedy with a few laughs here and there. Both Hathaway and De Niro play their roles well. Their characters are relatable and realistic. Though it felt more like a snapshot into someone's life rather than a movie. It's an enjoyable and worthwhile watch if you're in need of a happy movie.

It takes all the leads' considerable combined charm to forestall the aftertaste of the pic's smug life lessons and near-comically blinkered worldview.

A morass of wackiness, a chain of sequences shot in a flat and predictable manner that range from tedious to idiotic.

A better, funnier and more considered movie than much of what passes for nonfranchise studio filmmaking, even as it shows a world almost exclusively white, straight and upmarket.

The movie offers more frustrations than rewards to discerning viewers of any age or gender.

A sugar-sweet, wafer-thin comedy hoping to inspire many hugs across the generation gap.

Capitalises on the believable chemistry between Hathaway and De Niro to produce a rom com that is genuinely satisfying.

As you'd expect, Meyers handles the material with assurance and charm, and there's fun to be had in the odd-couple dynamic at her film's heart.
