Watching this second trailer for Shawn Levy’s “The Internship” reminds me of an episode of “The Simpsons” where Homer goes back to college (cause he needed a diploma or something) and ends up in a dorm full of nerds. He then has to teach them how to partay and ends up getting them all kicked out of college. But then everything works out because, well, it’s a cartoon. I suspect everything will all work out in “The Internship” too because, well, it’s a wacky buddy comedy starring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, though to be fair, Vaughn seems to be doing all the heavy lifting here.
Now if only someone will teach Yahoo and Bing how to be cool, too. Those nerds, they’re such nerds.
Billy and Nick are salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital world. Trying to prove they are not obsolete, they defy the odds by talking their way into a coveted internship at Google, along with a battalion of brilliant college students. But, gaining entrance to this utopia is only half the battle. Now they must compete with a group pf the nation’s most elite, tech-savvy geniuses to prove that necessity really is the mother of re-invention.
“The Internship” also stars Rose Byrne, John Goodman, Jessica Szohr, and JoAnna Garcia Swisher.
