The Internship

Rated 3.0

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, reprising versions of their Wedding Crashers’ personae, are out-of-work sales reps who talk themselves into an internship program at Google’s Mountain View campus. What ensues is a mildly diverting buddy-buddy comedy folded into what at times looks rather like an infomercial for Google recruitment. Vaughn, who co-wrote the script with Jared Stern, is particularly sharp with his familiar knucklehead/con-man/savant shtick, and Wilson has that charmingly goofy glow even though he looks vaguely distracted at times. Aasif Mandvi is agreeably snotty as the interns’ supervisor. Rose Byrne (the Wilson character’s “love interest”) and Max Minghella (an obnoxious rival intern) play it a little too straight in a supporting cast otherwise loaded with fresh-faced caricatures of youthful, rambunctious caricatures. Formulaic, but not lacking in amusement and whimsy. Cinemark 14, Feather River Cinemas and Paradise Cinema 7. Rated PG-13.
