Slant Magazine

By Andrew Schenker
Shawn Levy's occasionally uproarious, warm-hearted comedy is about different generations educating each other, but it never seems rote.

The Internship is the movie version of a goofy dog that knows only a few tricks but keeps on looking at you and wagging his tail, daring...

There’s a reason that it lacks the highs of "Wedding Crashers": The Internship puts us on the side of those who are trying to hold on to...

The Internship itself would be kind of charming, too, if this Google-recruitment film, this 119-minute commercial for Googliness, weren't...

The Hollywood Reporter

By Stephen Farber
The actors do what they can to supply the texture missing from the script. Vaughn and Wilson riff together with pleasing professionalism.

By Scott Foundas
This big-hearted underdog comedy from director Shawn Levy is, much like its two leads, exceedingly affable and good-natured despite being...

By Peter Travers
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...

By Mick LaSalle
This vaguely funny film is also the saddest and most depressing movie of 2013.

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson may be the worst interns since Monica Lewinsky.

In fact, The Internship rivals the aggressively bland “Larry Crowne” for sheer tepidness, if not worse due to the exhaustive product...

Warm, Funny and Entertaining.

By Alon Patterson
Google? Now there's a novel setting for a film. It plays funny enough but the big plot device here is the team buddy competition. With hard play on the age gap, this script works well enough with...

Just call it "Google - The Movie"

By Jvine2001
To put it straight, this movie was a predictable, unfunny, 2-hour advertisement for Google. It doesn't matter how much chemistry Vaughn and Wilson have together, they couldn't save this thing. A lot...

A mildly entertaining attempt to squeeze every last dollar out of this couple

By firebirdude
Entertaining like a 20 year old episode of Seinfeld I've seen 200 times. Still watchable and enjoyable, but nothing that I'll be cracking up about. I can't even say "this movie has its parts," as I...

Surprisingly witty and inspirational!

By PlanoRobbie
Vince did an amazing job creating this script for the movie. It is knee-slapping funny (yes, I am one of the older fans!) and extremely poignant. It was eye-opening to get to see what a...

Should be "R"

By susanwesla
I am a fan of Vince Vaugh, but like Adam Sandler who's talent is often spoiled by his trashy mindset interfering in the plotline, this took a major dump on viewers of the PG-13 age group. I took my...

Enjoyable two hours

By jed44444
I really enjoyed The Internship - I really like Vince and Owen, and they didn't disappoint in this one. Everything you want in a movie - comedy, romance, surprises, "feel good when you leave the...

BORING, NO Redeeming VALUE WHATSOEVER

By findjcr
First of all it is BORING. We walked out. Nothing funny, attempted humor is almost all sexual and crude, just not funny. Waste of money and don't even consider taking kids....

Bad Movie

By cmoreheadjr
Bad Movie, Jokes were played out, lot's of lone dialogue from actors. Lame plot. Same stuff as Wedding Crashers, different topic, some unemployed thirty somethings, trying to get it together....

Amazing...in the wrong way

By rcama003
I have been looking forward to this movie for a very long time...the trailers were amazing and it promised to be one of the most hilarious movies I had ever seen! And it was quite funny, overall...

Fun and Modern

By celinatk
A great movie! Example of the digital world taking over and old grown-ups being put away like a bunch of disabled geese!! And Google is a great example of modernism!! Almost the whole world uses...
