Rated PG-13

119 minutes

Released Oct. 22, 2013

The Internship” stars Vince Vaughn as Billy and Owen Wilson as Nick, two uneducated, 40-something salesmen who learn they are out of jobs and must start anew in their careers and their lives.

Billy begins searching for another job and Nick settles for one selling mattresses at a shop owned by his sister’s lover (Will Ferrell).

After his girlfriend leaves him and his house is about to be foreclosed on, Billy decides to do the unconventional and apply to be a Google intern -- signing Nick up for the process as well.

To qualify, he enrolls them in the University of Phoenix, as all interns must be college students, and during a Skype interview, convinces the powers that be to give them a chance and embrace diversity by taking on two guys old enough to be most of the traditional intern’s fathers.

There is predictability in the plot, as the young interns that are teamed up Billy and Nick learn a ton from them about life and living, and the two men learn much from their youthful counterparts.

Nevertheless, the dialogue is clever and intelligent, with a number of laugh-out-loud moments in the mix, including a hilarious Quidditch match with brooms and all.

Max Minghella as Graham Hawtrey is also great as Billy and Nick’s nemesis, who believes they are too old and too out of touch to even step foot on the Google campus.

“The Internship” disc includes both the unrated and the theatrical versions of the film; deleted scenes; a fake documentary about a game of Quidditch; the movie’s theatrical trailer; and audio commentary by director Shawn Levy.
