“The Internship” Is Hilarious
Posted by LaDale Anderson on Jun 7, 2013 - 7:36:34 PM

HOLLYWOOD—Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn are playing interns.  Yes, they really are playing interns in the new comedy “The Internship” which is hilarious in more ways than one could expect.  The comedic actors are a force to be reckoned with thanks to their previous involvement in the comedy “Wedding Crashers” which was a box-office hit.

 

This tale finds Billy (Vaughn) and Nick ( Wilson) who finds themselves starting over in life after losing their job.  What are two grown men expected to do at such a crucial time in life?  Get an internship at one of the biggest companies of all-time, Google.  That’s right the eccentric over the top buddies find themselves in a tech savvy world where they’re not at the top of their game educationally, but on a social level they outwit even their bosses.

What is particularly fascinating about “The Internship” is the film’s ability to tackle the issue of internships.  Most of us at some point in our life has worked as an intern or knows someone who participated as an intern for a company.  Is everything depicted in the picture 100% accurate?  Who knows, but elements of ”˜what’ we think an internship consists of linger in the back of the mind. 

 

For adults the movie will be an identical picture for many of them who are not internet savvy; I mean let’s face it technology has taken over and the younger generation communicates much more via social media than our older counterparts.  What I did find particularly motivating about the picture is the notion of being a team player. 

 

We all have encountered those situation where we were last to be chosen for a group and being forced to work with complete strangers.  It’s a social situation familiar to all of us, what’s more important is the things are main characters and some of the interns themselves learn while being spearheaded by leaders Billy and Nick.


Are their antics over the top? Yes! Are they a quite wacky? Yes, but who isn’t nowadays. Vaughn wears multiple hats in the picture, not only as its star, but also as a producer and writer. Director Shawn Levy presents a very realistic depiction of the Internet titan that makes the viewer feel as if they’ve stepped into the social giant’s arena.

 

While “The Internship” is not based on a real-life story, it gives the audience a slice of life in an attempt to bridge a generational gap.
