The Internship

Hiring them was a brilliant mistake.


The Internship
Two watch salesmen find their jobs vanish as people stop buying old-style watches. Trying to prove they are not obsolete, they defy the odds by talking their way into a coveted internship at Google, along with a battalion of brilliant college students. Now they must compete with a group of the nation's most elite, tech-savvy geniuses to prove that necessity really is the mother of re-invention.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Helen Herimbi quote iconA comedy that (mostly) works.
10
Die Burger
Riëtte Grobler quote iconEerder bemarking as vermaak oor 'googliness'.
5
Cape Times
Stephen Farber quote iconWhen dinosaurs invaded Google -- the comedy that never took off.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconAs a nerd, I found The Internship insulting. As a movie-goer, I found it offensive. It's two hours of tedium rescued only occasionally by barely amusing humor that rarely pushes the tame PG-13 envelope. Give The Internship a failing grade and send everyone involved back to school.

T. Durgin quote iconThis is a good movie that another couple of screenplay drafts might have made a great movie. Stick around for the closing credits, too. They are the best I have seen this year.
