Review: 'The Internship' Stars Vaughn and Wilson in Profoundly Unfunny Google Comedy

Isn’t it just so ironically hilarious that Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson come off as such unwanted guests in “The Internship,” Shawn Levy’s divided-generations and generation-dividing comedy? Not really. In the film, which for some reason co-stars Rose Byrne, the “Wedding Crashers” duo play unemployed, overage cadets aboard the Google mothership, trying to get jobs at America’s No. 1 place to work (according to Fortune magazine). As any proctology patient will attest, even the most unfunny experience has something to teach us. In the case of “The Internship” it’s how truly polarized the generations seem to be.
