Nick Campbell: No, I want to get rev'd up, and this song's not doing it.

User Reviews

These two are at it again... Hilarious as ever.
14 June 2013 | by andre_rox99See all my reviews

THE INTERNSHIP is a comedy film directed by Shawn Levy, starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson.

The film revolves around two guys who's jobs have been taken away by a company that has been closed due to poor sales. Billy and Nick decide to enroll themselves as interns at Google, just to live their dream.

So, The Internship, clearly, isn't the sequel of Wedding Crashers; I'm clearing that out in the beginning of this review. The plot lines of both the films are quite different in their own way. Wedding Crashers is about two womanizers who crash weddings for the romantic tone, whereas, The Internship is about two guys who just want to live their dream out by working at Google. As you can see, there doesn't seem to be any crudeness in this one, except for a few jokes.

The Internship is, honestly, a simple film with a simple plot and LOT of humor due to the two main cast who always do well on-screen. Yes; Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson have managed to do it again, however, in this one the former is more humorous than the latter. I'm also gonna bring up one more thing. The Internship does have some parts where it is quite 'geeky' due to the Google background. However, due to the on-screen pair and director, it tends to be quite humorous to some.

In the end, The Internship is a great time. Go watch it alone, watch it with your family... Trust me, you'll have a fun ride with these two.

THE INTERNSHIP- 8.5/10
