Quotes

[first lines]
Nick Campbell: What the shit is this? Why is this on the get psyched mix?
Billy McMahon: Because I gotta throw you a curve-ball every now and again, or you get bored, and the mix doesn't have its intended effect.
Nick Campbell: No, I want to get rev'd up, and this song's not doing it.
Billy McMahon: Oh, really? I defy you to crush this chorus and not get psyched.
Nick Campbell: Not gonna happen.
Billy McMahon: Don't ya think?

Google Infomercial...that runs too long!
18 September 2013 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

To be perfectly honest, I really like Google, it's not that I am against the brand or anything, and I even think their marketing campaigns are very intricate and subtle...and that's exactly why I hated this movie, it's not subtle at all.

The Internship, to sum things up, it's one of the longest infomercials I've seen in my entire life, and badly enough is also really boring at that; the actors do their best to make it look like an actual movie, they even succeed in the first 15 minutes of the film, but it's when Google takes the whole screen that everything goes down the drain...they even go in the "Google AdWords just saved an entire franchise" direction...

I think this is just a waste of time, if I wanted information about Google Drive, Gmail or Google Wallet I could have googled it right? I mean, there are youtube videos about those products, and there's a reason why people don't just waste their spare time watching those videos...well, now Google charged us to do it...

Oh and by the way, as a comedy it sucks big time, I did not laugh even once...
