The Internship

Rated 3.0

Two salesmen with no skills but the gift of gab (Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson) find themselves out of work when their company goes belly-up, so in desperation, they go for a summer internship at Google, where their co-workers are half their age with twice their IQs. The script by Vaughn and Jared Stern is silly and far-fetched, and the sucking up to Google throughout is just a tad unseemly. Still, the movie has charms in spite of itself; it's pretty funny and rather sweet. Vaughn and Wilson's comic rapport is as strong as it ever was, and the supporting cast is a big help: Rose Byrne as Wilson's romantic interest, Aasif Mandvi as the boys' doubtful supervisor, and Josh Brener, Dylan O'Brien, Tiya Sircar and Tobit Raphael as their geeky teammates. Shawn Levy's direction is uninspired but unobtrusive.
