The Internship 2013 7+ out of 10
When the trailers for this movie starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson came out I kind of dismissed it as a possible rental and then quickly forget about it. The plot seemed silly at first glance. Two old sales guys lose their jobs and decide to become Google Interns? I didn’t sound like a must see movie.
Well Sunday morning it happened to be on TV and was only about 5 minutes in so me and my wife started watching it and actually ended up really liking it. Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are dong there same old routine in this movie, it is almost like they are just playing themselves. Sometime it works and sometimes it doesn’t –this movie it worked. Vince Vaughn wrote the movie and he crafted it to take advantage of his and Owen’s talents. What seemed like an uninspired premise –turned into a funny version of a rag tag group of nerds (Revenge of the Nerds Style) overcoming huge odds. Sure it was far-fetched –but it was just funny. Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn work well together in this flick like a well-oiled comedy machine—like a Stan and Ollie or Abbott and Bud. You can tell that they enjoy working together. Their comedy chemistry just works so well in this movie.
One of my favorite little scenes is the scene where Vince Vaughn goes to pay for his food at the Google offices and is told it is free. He goes into a long silly Vince Vaughn still rambling and ends up taking a whole bunch of more food –just because it was free.
If you like either of these actors and dismissed this movie at first –because it just didn’t sound interesting enough –give it a try. If you aren’t a Vince Vaughn fan you probably won’t like it.
