The Internship

Vince Vaughn (also the film's co-writer) and Owen Wilson star in this comedy about two salesmen in their 40s whose careers have been torpedoed in the modern era. Out to prove they aren't obsolete and carve themselves out a future in an online world, they score an internship at Google that pits them against a battalion of brilliant college students. Gaining entrance to this technological 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. From director Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum).

Internship is great for employers, requiring people to give up their time with not much in the way of reward – which makes it not only this film’s subject matter but also an apt description of the mediocrity on offer. Despite appearing nothing more than a rote, predictable comedy that traded on the likeability of leads Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn (also the film’s screenwriter), The Internship still manages to disappoint as the pair sleepwalk through the film, seemingly unaware of how abjectly unfunny it is.

This big-hearted underdog comedy... much like its two leads, exceedingly affable and good-natured despite being undeniably long in the tooth. The pic's unwavering charm keeps it afloat.

Eight years on from Wedding Crashers, Vaughn and Wilson successfully rekindle their irascible shtick.

A movie sorely bereft of ideas, laughs and justification for the comic duo’s undifferentiating self-regard.

A big-studio release that, from start to gaga finish, is a hosanna to a single company, its products, philosophy and implicit politics.

A flabby farce that might win a pass at the box office because it's just so cute and family friendly. But where's your edge, guys? Where are the laughs that walk a tightrope?

It's a one-liner forged into a two-hour joke.

A good premise and a good cast flounder in search of a wittier script.

A gratuitous spruik for the money-churning web giants but not without moments of wit. The duo rediscover a little of their old magic.

The real star of The Internship is Google itself, and what a self-aggrandizing diva she is.
