The Internship

ages 16+ | 64 % Say It's Worth Your Time

After old-school salesmen Billy (Vince Vaughn) and Nick (Owen Wilson) find themselves downsized, Billy decides that, despite their complete lack of technological savvy, they should work for Google. The friends somehow manage to finagle internships at the Internet giant and promptly head out to Silicon Valley. Viewed with disdain by most of their fellow interns, Billy and Nick join forces with the rest of the misfit "nooglers" to make it through a series of competitive team challenges.

    I rated this worth your time only if you can handle the content. Specifically language and scenes in a strip club including underage drinking. Many women are wearing lingerie as they walk around the club and dance on stage. If you can make it through that this does have a good story.

    This is not a PG-13 movie in my mind. The content is sexually charged, the jokes come at the expense of much profanity, and any redeeming qualities are unfortunately few and far between the inappropriate content.

    The best part about this movie is Google. It's fun to have a small peek of what it's like on a daily basis at Google.

    Parents should know there is about 10 minutes of straight footage in a strip club. You see women dancing provocatively, women giving lap dances, and you see bar fights.

    There is also a considerable amount of swearing. I remember one f-word but a myriad of other swear words and sexual references.

    Overall, you're better researching Google on your own than watching this film.

    Not ok | Not Worth Your Time

    Many positive themes abound here such as "you can do anything you set your mind to", thinking outside of the box and that the value of wisdom and experience are to be heeded. Unfortunately, a few things spoil this otherwise likeable movie. First, this is a two hour commercial for Google, second, the overt sexuality is unnecessary and third, the language is foul and plentiful. Due to the unsavory content in this film, we cannot recommend it for the family... See Full Review

    Adding insult to comedic injury, the belabored effort has enough bad language and offensive material to cancel out its pertinent message concerning the virtues of adaptability and perseverance, especially during a difficult economic period... See Full Review

    I had some pretty low expectations for this film so maybe that is why I ended up enjoying it. Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are turning out to be a pretty good comedy duo and play well off each other.

    When they filmed this movie they actually filmed it to be an R-rated comedy but the studio wanted to go with PG-13.
    There are is a lot of things in this movie not appropriate for the young teenagers. The dumbest part of the movie and a scene that goes on way too long is a scene in a strip club. If they cut that scene out it wouldn't be so bad. There is also a lot of language and innuendos in this film.

    Overall, there was enough laughs for me to be entertained. It was interesting to get a little view about how working for Google would be like. There was just some dumb stuff and scenes they had in there that made it be just an average film instead of a great comedy.

    Started out a good movie, but then the sexual content just kept going, and going, and going. Skipped 4 chapters on fast forward. TOO much. Cut that scene down and movie would have been much better. For the length of that scene and content during that scene it should be rated R.

    This movie was a lot of fun. Vince and Owen are out of work and are competing for a job at Google. They are woefully unprepared but refuse to give up. Their optimism is what made me love this movie. There is some foul language so you may want the kids to have in the other room. My highlight is the Quidditch match!

    The Internship gets so caught up in healing the generational divide that it’s ostensibly about — the analog dudes vs. the digital kids — that the movie ends up being just a pleasant collection of mild laughs. It needed more spin, more Googliness... See Full Review
