In one scene, Robert De Niro's character is confused as to who Jay-Z is. This is an in-joke about the beef Robert De Niro and Jay-Z have had since 2012. See more »
At approximately 51 minutes Jules joins Ben to share pizza and a beer. Ben stands up and buttons his coat as Jules approaches. He then sits down without unbuttoning his coat. The camera quickly changes to a shot of Ben seated and his coat is unbuttoned. See more »

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.
