Man, we really feel you parents out there this fall, because there aren't many options out there you can enjoy along with your little ones. Earlier today, Disney dropped a rather underwhelming spot for "Frozen," and now Relativity is trying to lure you with "Free Birds," which looks equally uninspired. Though we will say, the choice for the voice leads we would love to see pair up in an actual movie at some point.

Owen Wilson & Zach Galifianakis in YOU ARE HERE
Matthew Weiner’s “You Are Here” is the worst “Mad Men”-related disaster since Sally Draper walked in on her father and Linda Cardellini going at it last season. And that was pretty bad, especially since Sally has already barged in on several passionate trysts—happily, not always involving her old man. “You Are Here” is far, far more soul-crushing: a supposed passion project that premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival with an air of mystery. Would Weiner’s first feature be a comedy? Would it have the feel of the modern television classic? Or perhaps seem linked to Weiner’s sitcom roots? And would it be any good? The answers to those questions are yes, no, yes, and my goodness, no.

What once were grand plans for a summer 2013 are now gone. Despite talking about it a lot, particularly on their press run for "The Stooges," it looks like Warner Bros. has finally yanked the lifeline that was keeping the thin hopes of a sequel to "Dumb & Dumber" alive. But perhaps this isn't really a surprise?

This weekend's broad new studio comedy "The Internship" (our review) concerns a couple of schlubs (former wedding crashers Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson) who, finding themselves out of work and hopelessly outdated when it comes to modern technology, apply to become interns at Google. While there, the movie becomes something of a workplace comedy – one in which all of their coworkers are way younger, cuter, and more brilliant.

It’s hard to believe that after 2005’s “Wedding Crashers,” Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn waited eight years to team up again (especially given that they were offered countless re-up options after that R-rated comedy surprisingly soared to almost $210 million domestically). Anyway, they're back together for “The Internship” of all movies; a watered-down PG-13 version of these same characters -- it really might as well be them only almost a decade later -- only this time older, more obsolete and jobless. It’s “Google Crashers” minus the piquant humor (for the most part anyhow) right down to the same rapport and character archetypes the two shared in the original ‘Crashers.’

So, will "The Internship" be a comedic look at the issue of unemployment gripping the country, another jaunt for Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, or perhaps both? The aim seems to be to hit that middle sweet spot, and four clips and a brand new featurette are here to give you another taste of the movie before it hits theaters on Friday.

The Internship
Making a movie at Google’s headquarters featuring a plot that’s largely centered around Google probably has its share of perks. One of which would be the extra (free?) online advertising from two of top three most popular websites on the internet, including the Google-owned YouTube, of course. Now that “The Internship” will be out everywhere in theaters in just two weeks, an amusing little short film featuring Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, and Ben Schwartz (Jean-Ralphio from “Parks and Recreation”) has popped up on the site for YouTube Comedy Week, and it’s definitely not an advertisement for “The Internship.” Except of course it totally is.

With "Punch Drunk Love," Paul Thomas Anderson managed to find the dark, vulnerable core at the center of Adam Sandler's schtick and turn into something memorable, compelling and unique. Can he do the same for Owen Wilson's shaggy, goofy, lovable, slacker/surfer vibe?

As much as we're hoping that "The Internship" will be a guilty comedy pleasure this summer, the news that it's coming with a PG-13 rating is a bit of bummer. While director Shawn Levy told Collider that they had also shot R-rated versions of jokes and gags (presumably for a future unrated home video edition), we think going PG-13 into theaters is a bit of an ill-advised move here. Who wants to go see Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn in a sanitized comedy, when they delivered a smash R-rated hit with "Wedding Crashers"? And with stuff like "Bridesmaids" and of course "The Hangover" proving to be mega-hits with the R stamp, why not let the F-bombs fly?

The Internship
I'm going to Cannes next month, yet I'm also looking forward to "The Internship." Such are the contradictions in life. Sometimes you just want to sit back and watch two old pros, and good pals, just get up on the big screen and riff and jazz with comic lines all over the place. Will it win any awards? Nope. Will it be a dumb movie with some enjoyable turns from Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson? Frankly, it it does that, it will meet my highest expectation.
