Consensus: The Internship weighs down Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson's comic charisma with a formulaic script and padded running time that leans heavily on its stars' easygoing interplay.

You don't need a heart to like this movie. You need an MBA.

There are plenty of films out there competing for your money ... 'The Internship' doesn't even deserve a part-time gig ...

For the most part The Internship succeeds because of a feel-good vibe that resonates from beginning to end.

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.

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.

Fans of Vaughn and Wilson shouldn't expect the highs of "Wedding Crashers," but as far as amiability goes it's almost off the charts.

Critic's Notebook

"The Internship" is less a pageant of Google's products and services than an agitprop of the company's corporate philosophy and culture.

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson tone down their respective fast-talking and schlubby buddy routines as two middle-aged nobodies who land tech internships at Google… More

Some of the jokes actually hit their mark, but overall The Internship is so cliche-ridden and unimaginative that nobody wins. Not even Google.

If the goal was to pack as many comedy, feel-good film cliches into 2 hours then everyone involved did a terrific job here
