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.
Billy (Vince Vaughn) and Nick (Owen Wilson) are salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital world. Trying to prove they are not obsolete, they defy the odds by talking their way into a coveted internship at Google, along with a battalion of brilliant college students. But, gaining entrance to this utopia is only half the battle. Now they must compete with a group of the nation's most elite, tech-savvy geniuses to prove that necessity really is the mother of re-invention.Written by

The scene at the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge after the strip club is supposed to be the "morning after". But, traffic on the Golden Gate Bridge (heavy northbound) and the sunlight coming off the actors at Vista Point (from the west) would indicate the scene was filmed in the evening. See more »
What the shit is this? Why is this on the get psyched mix?
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.
No, I want to get rev'd up, and this song's not doing it.
Oh, really? I defy you to crush this chorus and not get psyched.
Not gonna happen.
Don't ya think?

Far too often, you see the cast of a movie, the previews, go in with an idea of what to expect, and come out feeling you were duped out of your money. Not so with 'The Internship.' I was reluctant to see it based on some of the poor reviews I'd seen, but my wife, who pays absolutely no attention to reviews whatsoever, is a big fan of both Wilson and Vaughn (sp?), so we took the chance. We both found it to be entertaining and funny, never lagging too long before the next joke. The Google campus proved an interesting site in itself.
Of course it's a bit far-fetched, but who cares. If you like Owen and Vince either separately or together, you will likely enjoy the movie. All of the supporting actors did a commendable job as well.
