The Internship is nothing we haven't seen before.
Vince Vaughn plays a guy who forces himself into an odd situation in which he's surrounded by people who are much younger than he is. Despite reeking of mediocrity, Vaughn manages to commandeer a role of authority among this rag-tag group of his significantly younger peers, inspiring them to compete in a meaningless decathlon of ridiculous challenges. But, first, he's got to talk one of the Wilson actors into going along with his plan. Eventually, their successful completion of said decathlon increases everyone's respective self-worth, allowing them to rise to the occassion and aspire to be great within their own mediocre existence. Also, there's a prominent joke about Will Ferrell's neck. Sound familiar? It should.
Owen Wilson is basically a puppy dog with blonde hair who puts his hands on his hips a lot and uses overconfidence (but not the douchey kind) and persistence (but not the illegal kind) to woo a pretty woman. Periodically, he has to shift focus from courting that lady (whom he hardly knows) and bantering with Vince Vaughn to cater to his buddy's diva-sized ego and segue into a Will Ferrell cameo. Though their complicated introduction, her initial reluctance and/or disinterest, and other mounting obstacles suggest that their love will never be consumated, he finds a way to sweep her off her feet as some indie song plays in the background. It's mom rock. Also, sports, boat shoes and a significantly more skilled antagonist. Sound familiar? It should.
The Internship is the bromance and love story from Wedding Crashers and the plot from Old School packaged together for Baby Boomers who made their kids turn off the television during dinner in the '90s. Billy McMahon (Vaughn) and Nick Campbell (Wilson) play middle-aged salesmen who fall on hard times when their company folds. With their backs against the wall, they land internships at Google's California headquarters—even though they have none of the prerequisite skills—because Google prides itself on doing weird crap.
