Anytime Owen Wilson
and Vince Vaughn get together, you know it's going to be a party.
Their last movie was 2005's "Wedding Crashers." When
I heard they were getting back together, I knew I HAD to see this
movie. In this new film, Wilson stars as Nick and Vaughn plays
the role of Billy. Both are watch salesmen.
The film opens with
a scene of Nick and Billy cruising down the road in a Chrysler
Sebring convertible with the radio blasting. They were en route
to a meeting with a client. Shortly after, the two learned that
their boss laid them off. He told the two that watches were going
out of style and that people check the time on their phones nowadays.
The very next shot is of an old lady checking her phone.
So Nick got a job as
a mattress salesman. His boss was the very funny Will Ferrell.
Ferrell picked on Nick very badly at work. He made sexual references
and actually slapped Nick on the rear a few times in front of
Meanwhile, Billy was
researching new jobs on the internet. He looked at several different
occupations before finally coming across Google. Billy and Nick
decided to apply for an internship with the technology giant at
its Palo Alto, Calif. Headquarters. They applied online using
Skype inside of a very noisy library. What could go wrong there?
The hiring managers
at Google passed on Nick and Billy several times. Eventually,
they got approved for the gig at the very last second. The two
were asked to select a team. No one wanted to work with the two
former watch salesman because they were the oldest people in the
There were five challenges
that each of the groups had to complete. The group that won the
most challenges would get jobs at the end of the internship. All
of the others would go home unemployed.
Billy and Nick's group
lost the first challenge, which was to find the error in a website
code. However, they did much better and almost won the second
challenge, which was broomball. Their group actually won the third
challenge. Their team lost the fourth challenge because Billy
failed to follow some specific instructions at the beginning.
You'll have to go see the movie to find out what happens in the
fifth and final challenge. Does their team win? Which team gets
the job at Google?
Shawn Levy directed
this new film. He is best known for "Night at the Museum,"
"Cheaper by the Dozen" and "Big Fat Liar."
This new movie is 119 minutes long. It is rated PG-13 for sexuality,
some crude humor, partying and language. Scenes for "The
Internship" were shot at Google's campus in Mountain View,
Calif. and in Atlanta.
I would recommend this
movie for everyone. You may be thinking this movie was all serious
because it's about an internship. However, Wilson and Vaughn spiced
it up by taking his team to a bar and a strip club. There were
lots of jokes. Run to your nearest theater to see it!
Look for "The
Internship" to open in theaters nationwide on Friday, June
