Shawn Levy's occasionally uproarious, warm-hearted comedy is about different generations educating each other, but it never seems rote.
The actors do what they can to supply the texture missing from the script. Vaughn and Wilson riff together with pleasing professionalism.
This big-hearted underdog comedy from director Shawn Levy is, much like its two leads, exceedingly affable and good-natured despite being undeniably long in the tooth.

This vaguely funny film is also the saddest and most depressing movie of 2013.
The movie is not exactly a laugh riot. But its comedy is amiable enough — and surprisingly clean.
The Internship might be the best worst comedy of the year thus far.
Product placement aside, there’s an admirable, even sweet, message about fellowship and misfit pride shot through the whole script, and Vaughn is rather touching as a kind of cuddly uncle figure to his fellow interns.
The real star of The Internship is Google itself, and what a self-aggrandizing diva she is.
The Internship has some funny moments. The cast is too talented for it to come up completely dry. But for a movie about a place so filled with ambitious climbers, it is far too lazy.
In fact, The Internship rivals the aggressively bland “Larry Crowne” for sheer tepidness, if not worse due to the exhaustive product placement for a company whose real-life presence is unlikely to soon wane.
