“The Internship" stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson and chronicles the adventures of two middle-aged salesmen who score internships at Google. It recently raked in a little more than $18 million during its opening weekend. Monitor critic Peter Rainer gave it a C-, noting that "there’s a potentially good comedy to be made about old-school guys trying to make a go of it in a youth-dominated digital marketplace" but that the movie squanders its promising premise.
But how would two real-life interns feel about the film? Two Monitor interns, Colby Bermel and Casey Lee, decided to check out the movie this past weekend. Here they discuss the film, life lessons as imparted by Vaughn and Wilson, and PB&J sandwiches.
Colby Bermel: I was very excited to see this movie. When I saw the trailer a few months ago, I cried tears of joy for two reasons. One, the return of Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. And two, the whole premise of the movie, which really tickled my fancy.
