A gadget in your hand, on your wrist band and maybe soon on your face, that’s the future. They are certainly necessary when it comes to getting things done but is this new generation living in a different world? Welcome to Google/The Internship.









The story of this easy inspirational film starts out with the suave talker Billy McMahon (Vince Vaughn) and his partner Nick Campbell (Owen Wilson) heading to a meeting to make their biggest sales pitch. A few surprising things, never knew actor Vince to be so emotional with this character and you will see that throughout the film, mostly that would have been Owen, for example he plays and listens to the song Alanis Morissette‘s Ironic and that sums up the character Billy and the new Vince Vaughan.

Moving on, they don’t get the sale, their company that sells great time pieces has been closed and now they hit a dead-end. Suddenly Billy gets an idea while doing a job search to apply at Google and before long they have been selected for the “Internship” at Google and the winning team will secure a permanent working contract. Isn’t this the current spirit of life?

While it may be receiving rotten reviews and jealous remarks that it’s actually a clever way of making a Google film, you see like 4 seconds of Google co-founder Sergey Brin, it is ripe in the message. Stand up for what you believe, there are disconnects with the old and new but some things in life will remain the same, for example, team work, appreciating people for who they are, believing in yourself, falling in love, discovering your inner self and making that job oh so awesome that you rock. The plot of the film remains simple and luckily Vaughan is not too loud and over bearing, Owen is not all that silly, the side kicks including Aasif Mandvi (Mr Chetty), Rose Byrne (Dana), Josh Brerner (Lyle Spaulding), Tiya Sircar (Neha Patel), Dylan O’Brien (Stuart Twombly) and Tobit Raphael (Yo-Yo Santos) were good.

Compared to The Break-Up and Couples Retreat, this is a better story written by Vince and just might be he can turn Director soon.
