Now that you've seen it, what did you think? The comedy duo from Wedding Crashers are back at it again - Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson star in The Internship, directed by Shawn Levy (of Night at the Museum, Date Night, Real Steel). This time the two get an internship at Google, where they must compete with a group of young, tech-savvy geniuses for a shot at employment. But is it any good? Is it even as funny as Wedding Crashers, or not even close? Does the Google setting add or take away from the movie? How about the cast? If you've seen it, leave a comment with your thoughts on Shawn Levy's The Internship.
Note: I haven't seen this movie yet, but will update here with my reaction once I have. In the meantime, here's a quote to start things off from a review written by Nathan Bartlebaugh on The Film Stage: "The Internship spends most of its time being a feature-length commercial for Google, saving a little to advertise for the fading stars of Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. Not surprisingly, this doesn't leave much for room for laughs… Wilson and Vaughn are trying to recreate their Wedding Crashers comaraderie, but all this meager adult wish-filfullment manages to crash are our expectations for a good time at the movies." Ouch.
