At one point in the movie, the interns mimic the Ocean's movies to engage in a break in, with each of them taking on a character from the franchise. Anne Hathaway stars in the all female spin off of the franchise, Ocean's 8. See more »

How do I spend rest of my days? You name it. Golf. Books. Movies. Pinochle. Tried yoga, learned to cook, bought some plants, took classes in mandarin.
Believe me I've tried everything.

Pretty funny, great story all can relate to no matter your age or sex. NOT a romance.
I caught an advance screening of this last night. The theater was close to being packed with men, woman and children. The movie was surprisingly quite funny; didn't know anything about it before viewing. The entire theater ended up cracking up numerous times. There were various times I felt bad for De Niro's character, but he was optimistic and didn't let it effect him, so it was great. There were a couple of instances I would have never guessed things about the movie. There is one scenario in the story that is tough; what would you do if put in that circumstance. I believe ages 20-80 can relate to this movie. We had De Niro's aspect as well as Hathaway's. Good storyline. The "Intern" group of guys were funny too. I'd see this again.
