Billy (Vince Vaughn) and Nick (Owen Wilson) are salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital world. 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. But, gaining entrance to this utopia is only half the battle. 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. (c) Fox

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You don't need a heart to like this movie. You need an MBA."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"There are plenty of films out there competing for your money ... 'The Internship' doesn't even deserve a part-time gig ..."
‑ James Rocchi, MSN Movies
"It isn't really a movie about friendship or new beginnings - it's a movie about selling Google."
‑ Dieter Bohn, The Verge
" a very funny bit of salesmanship (what else?), our heroes talk their way into trying out for the gig, and the rest becomes a cornball and, at times, charming piece of fluff."
‑ John Urbancich, Your Movies (
"A by-the-numbers bromantic comedy that is essentially a feature-length advert for Google, The Internship uses the weapons-grade charm of Wilson and Vaughn to spout a corporate message."
‑ Michael Leader, Film4
"Similar to Eddie Murphy's hard right turn from daring and profane comedy to family-friendly romps, Vaughn and Wilson have gone all soft and gooey here."
‑ Christy Lemire,
"Like many an intern, this sweet, negligible comedy, starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson as Google's oldest interns, doesn't live up to its potential."
‑ Michael Sragow, Orange County Register
"'The Internship' isn't as funny or exuberant as 'Wedding Crashers' and the plot is formulaic, but as lightweight entertainment goes it's . . . well, light and entertaining."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"The Internship is ultimately as lazy and pointless (and overlong) a comedy that one can easily recall..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"There are bad movies, and then there are movies whose success would bode ill for cinema's future. The Internship is the latter."
‑ Nathan Rabin, The Dissolve
"It's a testament to the duo's jazzy comic chemistry that they wring some laughs from this dated, frankly sinister premise."
‑ Guy Lodge, Time Out
"One of those movies that milks its stars' inherent charisma for as long as it can, but it does so mainly because it has little else."
‑ Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
"O mais caro vídeo institucional já produzido."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"The comic business is only fitfully amusing. How many times do we need to hear Nick say 'on the line' instead of 'online'?"
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"Getting explicit sponsorship from Google is one thing; acting as an extended ad for Silicon Valley's finest strip joint does seem a bit seedy."
‑ Catherine Shoard, Observer [UK]
