The In­tern­ship

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

Owen Wil­son and Vince Vaughan reteam as a cou­ple of down­sized chancers in their mid-40s com­pet­ing with Gen­er­a­tion Y for an in­tern­ship at search gi­ant Google. Gen­er­a­tional laughs en­sue as they prove them­selves in­ept with tech­nol­ogy and 21st cen­tury so­cial cues. (Re­port, Page 12.) They say: Crit­ics were split: some were happy with the film’s easy-does-it ap­proach and lik­able leads; oth­ers wanted more from the pedes­trian script, viewed as a free ad­vert for Google. Wesay: Di­rected by Shawn Levy ( Real Steel), this is not par­tic­u­larly mem­o­rable, but a de­cent enough big-screen com­edy that just – and we mean just – scrapes by as an ac­cept­able Fri­day night se­lec­tion. Run­ning time 119 min­utes. Screens at Har­bour Town, Nerang, Pa­cific Fair, Aus­tralia Fair, Robina, Coolan­gatta, Tweed City.

Genevieve Bu­jold and James Cromwell
