The Internship

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson reunite to try and recapture some of the magic from 2005’s Wedding Crashers. One wishes they hadn’t. The Internship is ostensibly about making something of oneself regardless of age or life experiences. It’s also technically a comedy. On both fronts, though, the film utterly fails. The film is neutered by its PG-13 rating, but more direly, it’s ruined by becoming a two-hour infomercial for all things Google. There are a couple of problems here. One, in an effort to make Google seem like The Best Place on Earth to Work, it’s filled with some of the smuggest, most asinine people you’d never want to work with. Two, that running time is unnecessary. Avoid at all costs.
