The Internship

Director Shawn Levy’s The Intership is a delightful summer comedy starring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, who co-wrote the screenplay with Jared Stern.
Playing basically the same characters as in Wedding Crashers, Wilson and Vaughn are still trying to find their way to survive, this time in the digital age, by joining the competition to get an internship at Google.  They, of course, are put in the “loser group” where their worldly skills, eventually, prove of value to their nerdy team members.

Rose Byrne, Aasif Mandvi, Josh Brener, Tiya Sircar and Tobit Raphael add to the fun their performances with Cinematographer Jonathan Brown and Production Designer Tom Meyer bringing out the bright world of the Disneylandish  Google campus.

The Intership has shades of the Revenge of the Nerds franchise and Animal House and will appeal most to a Gen-Y and Millennial audience.  However, anyone who has had to compete for jobs over the past decade should thoroughly enjoy it, as well.

I give The Intership a 4 out of 5 for the fan base.
