Reviews: The Internship (2013)

internshipReviews for this film from our members:

  • Marina Antunes @ Row Three
  • [New – 4/3/14] | Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan
    • Excerpt: The Internship is a film that is trying too hard by throwing in one cliché after another.
  • Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com
    • Excerpt: To have made this film now in this joyless, long-winded way, Vaughn (who also takes story and screenplay credit) and Wilson seem to earn the obsolete label that is placed on their characters, which is unfortunate because they’ve proven they’re capable of much better comedy than this.
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: this is the Google+ of movies
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: …a vehicle that’s overstuffed, formulaic and dated right out of the gate [but] Vaughn and Wilson’s generosity allowing others to shine provides “The Internship” a basis for comedy sprung from genuine warmth.
  • Tony Dayoub @ Cinema Viewfinder
    • Excerpt: Despite a rocky beginning, the new comedy re-teaming WEDDING CRASHERS stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson rights itself halfway through…
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: [Y]et another reminder that improvisation is … hardly a sturdy foundation for a feature-length movie — even one that’s just an advertisement for a multinational corporation.
  • Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
    • Excerpt: The line between a legitimate feature film and a produce placement-filled infomercial grow thinner than ever in this underdog comedy set on the Google campus. Bing anyone?
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: Is it supposed to be flattering to Google that two idiots bullsh*t their way into a highly competitive internship, even though they know nothing about computers, or the Internet, or programming?
  • Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
  • Peter Martin @ Twitch
  • Ryan McNeil @ The Matinee
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: It’s a bit ship…
  • Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz
    • Excerpt: Pleasant, affable, good-natured… The Internship isn’t very good – and as a comedy, it’s just about a complete failure – but it’s so darn eager to please that it becomes almost impossible to dislike.
  • Nuno Reis @ Antestreia [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: Percebo que o filme foi escrito por pessoas que têm uma visão um bocado limitada, só viram um dos lados da questão – o lado velho – mas ao menos esforçaram-se em construir um produto que também é bem recebido pelos jovens. Claro que as falhas são óbvias para quem sabe do que falam, mas como dentro do tema das tecnologias nenhum filme consegue ser correcto e envolvente, prefiro um que agarra o espectador desensinando pouco, a um que agarre baseado em mentiras ou um que seja cientificamente correcto e não interesse a ninguém.
  • Amir Siregar @ Flick Magazine [Indonesian]
  • Phil Villarreal @ COEDMagazine.com
    • Excerpt: Having already paid for itself with corporate pounds of flesh and not bothered forwarding the cash to buy a laugh or two, The Internship is happy to take your money and dismiss you with a Google Wave.
