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.

Homeless veteran Bob 'Drillbit' Taylor manages to enjoy life anyhow and even saves some cash for his dream, an 'all-paid' move to Alaska, even if that may take many years. His dream comes within reach when clever nerd Wade, has fat friend Ryan 'T-dog' and cocky shrimp Jim, all new to high-school, are bullied so badly by emancipated Filkins and his buddies that they advertise for a bodyguard. Only Drillbit seems affordable and not crazy, so he's hired and drains their pocket-money and home content. He's clueless how to protect them but gives them (bogus) self-defense classes.Written by
Don (Danny McBride) poses as a substitute teacher in one scene. McBride actually worked as a substitute teacher before becoming an actor. See more »
When Wade's parents enter the living room to see what was stolen, the window is intact, even though Don had broken it earlier when he was robbing the house. There is no way there was enough time to fix the window in time. See more »
The end credits show a scene of a kid walking into the nurses office asking for help (similar to what Drillbit did when he got punched). Drillbit appears as the school nurse, who then asks the kid who punched him and promising him it will "never happen again". See more »
I wouldn't say it's a waste of time but also I wouldn't spend it that way again. Its a movie that it has some funny moments but they pass too fast turning it into a nonsense film.Maybe it is a entertaining movie for kids and teens because of all the situations. The story about Two kids hire a low-budget bodyguard to protect them from the playground bully. The cast is decent but the acting is weak. Owen Wilson in maybe his worst performance, I don't know but I feel him uncomfortable with this role, the three kids are good, specially Tony Gentile (the fat one). In conclusion, It was intended to be and entertaining movie and it was for a while.
