Trivia

One of Jules' employees is named Mia. This is a reference to The Princess Diaries (2001) and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement (2004), where Anne Hathaway played Princess Mia. See more »

Goofs

When Jules and Ben are chatting on Jules's bed in the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco, and she's telling Ben about Matt cheating on her, a flush covers Anne Hathaway's chest and rises up her neck - probably due to the emotion of the scene. A couple of shots later, and the flush is gone; this was probably a take or two down the track. Then towards the end of the scene, the flush returns. See more »

Quotes

Matt: I can't tell you how s-Sorry and ashamed I am. I thought I could do it. I thought I could be the guy that I told you I was going to be. And then, somewhere along the way... I thought I was losing you. But it was actually me. I got lost. It's a confusing world out there, and who I am got messed up for a minute. And now I'm watching you ready to give all this up for me. I will not let that happen. I love you, and I will do so much better if you'll let me. Please, Jules. Let me make it right again...
Jules: [...]

A Good, Clean, Wholesome Entertainment
1 November 2015 | by dancing15bearSee all my reviews

Sometimes you go to the theater, and you cringe at some of the previews, most of which are full of sex, violence, and an apocalyptic view of the world. It's hard to find a movie that is respectable and clean, with charm and wit, one that is suitable for thinking adults. "The Intern" is such a movie.

Robert DeNiro is superb. How a guy who played such ruthless characters in "Goodfellas" and "Taxi Driver" can pull off this avuncular gentlemen is a testament to his craft. His Ben Whittaker almost seems too perfect, but DeNiro brings a humanity that makes him eminently believable. Anne Hathaway does a fine turn as the Internet entrepreneur, and fleshes out well what could have been a cartoon character of the Übermom. The supporting cast supports wonderfully, giving the stars plenty of room to shine, not distracting from the story. And the plot never goes where it shouldn't, something that does happen in other, more cynical films.

So I would very highly recommend this film. It has some "legs," as evidenced by the fairly sizable audience given that it's in its sixth week of release. You know why? You'll leave the theater entertained and uplifted. And how often can you say that at the cinema these days?
