Movie Review: The Internship July 27, 2013

Netflix Synopsis: Two out-of-work salesmen, lacking the digital-savvy skills they need to find jobs, sign on as interns at a high-tech company. While their new assignment may give them the training they need, it also means staying one step ahead of their ignorance.

The movie has been out in the theaters for a while now. But as busy parents of two active boys we haven’t been out to the movies in months. Both Kim and I have been wanting to get out and see The Internship with Vince Vaughan and Owen Wilson. It is the story of two 30-somethings that lose their sales jobs when the watch distribution company they work for shuts down. No one wears watches anymore, right?

They don’t have much in the way of training for other industries or jobs so what are they to do? The answer of course is to apply for an internship at one the most prestigious technology companies in our time. Google. What ensues is a classic comedy from these two stars. The Internship takes us through what is might be like to battle your way into a job at this huge company.

The best part of this movie is the creativity demonstrated by the teams. Sameness instills plainness. The most creative solutions come from diversity. I love problem solving and figuring out how to accomplish the goal and resolve the issue. I definitely recommend this movie. This movie is entertaining, provocative and interesting AND funny!
