The Internship: Googleliscious
Someone had to do it. And who better than Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn.
Someone had to tell the Millennial Generation that there's more to life than texting, tweeting, Facebooking, pintristing, instagramming, prowling the Internet on smartphones and shuffling around, obliviously, with their cell crammed to their ears.
Does the Movie Slut sound angry? Well, yes, especially since she nearly ran over one of these walking-while-texting zombies when he lurched in front of her car.
But not to dwell. Wilson and Vaughn make the same point with humor in this flick by landing internships at Google and having to compete with those half their age, aka, the Millennials, who know lots about computer innards, but nothing about life.
It's said that Wilson and Vaughn were asked to make a sequel to Wedding Crashers, their laugh-a-minute 2005 film, and decided instead to do something original. Internship won't have you falling off your seat like WC probably did, but it's a ton of fun and the MS applauds the guys for creating something new in this summer of reruns.
