Two salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital age find their way into a coveted internship at Google, where they must compete with a group of young, tech-savvy geniuses for a shot at employment.
Will (Glenn Howerton) is a 30-something website manager who uses local café, Coffee Town, as his office. When the owners of the shop discuss plans to convert Coffee Town into a bar, Will enlists the help of his two best friends Chad and Gino (Steve Little and Ben Schwartz) to save his freeloading existence. In order to thwart the plans of Coffee Town's owners, the trio stages a robbery to create the illusion of an unsafe neighborhood not suitable for the proposed venue. Also standing in their way is Sam (Josh Groban), a disgruntled barista with delusions of grandeur-he wants to be a rock star-and Will's heartache over unrequited love for Becca (Adrianne Palicki).

This is just one of those times where you get someone who has yet to produce a feature film do so and hit it out of the ballpark. It has a funny storyline, a great cast, and a veritable who's who of cameos from college-humor actors. The best thing about it however is it's writing, it is one of those movies that doesn't take itself too seriously and in that allows it to have quite juvenile humor. Josh Groban plays a great antagonist in the movie, and I hope to soon see him in more comedies as he certainly has a nac for acting (what is he not good at?). I would recommend this for anyone who wants to see a good and refreshingly original comedy. It follows movies like Ted and 21 jump street as refreshing and original comedy on the silver screen.
