Reviews: The Intern (2015)

internHere are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice
    • Excerpt: A pleasant dramedy about work and a cross-generational friendship.
  • Francisco Cangiano @ CineXpress [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: The Intern es un agradable y entretenido vehículo que pone en muestra la excelente química entre Robert De Niro y Anne Hathaway. Aunque no termina siendo memorable, The Intern sí esta llena de afecto, mensajes positivos y bastante humor ligero.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Meyers makes an admirable argument for the value of seniors in the workplace. If only she hadn’t delivered it in a contrived fairy tale.
  • David Crow @ Den of Geek
    • Excerpt: Whether this world of leaky McMansion rooftops and kitchen renovation conflicts is one you want to visit is another matter. But rest assured, The Intern is very much of the [Nancy Meyers] piece, right down to there only being one black person present (and in the background) during bookend scenes separated by two hours.
  • Jim Dixon @ Examiner.com
    • Excerpt: Can a working woman have it all? Subversively, for a movie, writer/director Nancy Meyers suggests the answer might be no.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: [W]riter/director Nancy Meyers’ movie shows itself to be “old-school” in far less charming ways.
  • Kimberly Gadette @ Thalo.com
    • Excerpt: Unlike Meyers’ earlier film, ‘It’s Complicated’ … this one isn’t.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: Sparky and sweetly accessible, it’s a charming date movie/ crowd-pleaser.
  • Vadym Grygoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: A nice movie about real problems people face in real life, and it deals with them in as sidelong a way as it possibly can, avoiding all strong emotion.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Sometimes a little too cute and toothless but ultimately in touch with universally human feelings, “The Intern” is a pleasantly smart entertainment for adults that resists condescension and cheesed-up sap, actually taking time out of its 121 minutes to listen to and understand its characters.
  • Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
  • Kristin Dreyer Kramer @ NightsAndWeekends.com
  • Jason McKiernan @ film Racket
    • Excerpt: The Intern is a synthesis of Meyers’ ideals, a film with shared leads, each of whom is the embodiment of a trailblazing establishment-toppler. And, also true to the Meyers mold, it’s bright, funny, and altogether wonderful.
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: All things intern…
  • Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
  • Eddie Pasa @ DC Filmdom
    • Excerpt: Once again into the world of Nancy Meyers comedies we go, where we find Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway making us smile and laugh.
  • Jerry Roberts @ Armchair Cinema
    • Excerpt: The movie is as bland and superfluous as it gets. Director Nancy Meyer sets up the inner-office environment with the reverie of shop-worn sitcom. It’s pleasant and nice but it’s only established so that Ben’s old-school experience can teach the young a thing or two, but none of it has any significant payoff.
  • [New – 1/22/16] | Thomas Spurlin @ DVDTalk.com
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Pleasant but bland, Nancy Meyer’s latest exercise in anodyne filmmaking is as sweet as cotton candy and just about as nourishing.
