In one scene, Robert De Niro's character is confused as to who Jay Z is. This is an in-joke about the beef Robert De Niro and Jay-Z have had since 2012. See more »

I'm Fiona, the house masseuse. Love that there's another oldie but goodie here... How's that, Ben?
Oh, hmm, oh boy

I saw the trailer for 'The Intern' sometime ago, advertised before 'Spy (2015)'. I liked the premise and the two lead actors, so today (the premiere in Romania) I had to watch it.
I expected a fun, neat comedy but what I experienced was so much more: a great plot, brilliantly executed and acted. The jokes and fun parts were on point, and the world the movie created felt very authentic, immersive and a joy to watch on the big screen - this was helped by amazing costuming and cinematography.
The entire cast had very strong chemistry between them, and both Hathaway and De Niro were wonderful.
Overall an awesome, heartwarming movie. I walked out of the movie theater with a smile.
