The Intern

PLOT:

Agreeing to participate in a community outreach program, e-commerce entrepreneur Jules Ostin hires a 70-year-old intern — who ends up bringing his special brand of business savvy to her fashion enterprise.

What people are saying:

“Interesting premise where the intern is a retired senior citizen. Originality basically stops there. This movie relied on its two stars. Hathaway is worthy, but DeNiro’s brilliance carries an otherwise mediocre film.” 2 stars

“Truly loved this movie! My wife couldn’t stop raving about it. I disagree about what some other reviewers commented on regarding the last “third” of the movie and it’s ending and I’m a hard judge on endings. I believe what happened in the last third added to the reality of the situation and the ending was quite appropriate. This is the “supreme” feel-good movie with some wonderful life-lessons. It was perhaps Anne Hathaway’s best piece of work. You will enjoy it immensely!” 5 stars

“Probably what I liked best from this movie was seeing Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway as the two lead characters here as I really like the both of them. Anne looked especially gorgeous in this one and did a great job as usual. De Niro is very likeable too. The supporting cast is fine enough, not really annoying except for one of the interns named Davis, but it didn’t really do anything to take away from this film. If anything maybe it’s just a tad too long, but overall it’s a good watch.” 3 stars

“I LOVE Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro so I was guessing this was going to be a pretty decent movie. I was wrong. I have no idea why this movie is getting high reviews from people. The story is about a widowed old guy failing at retirement and going back to work at a job. Does that sound appealing to you? He meets a beautiful female boss and has no romance or sexual tension with her. THAT is the story. They try to dress it up. But in the end the take-away message is “Don’t work things out with your spouse.” The worst movie I have seen in a long time.” 1 star

“it’s not the comedy that will make you laugh, it’s the comedy that will make you smile. Nancy Meyers makes movies for women, and this time for senior as well. There is no single story, more like fragments of people’s lives. Senior internship program of an e-commerce start-up founded by a young female already set the scene up for the drama and conflicts. Women can relate to this movie, especially women with a purpose. It was also nice to see the office scenes with a lot of open space, MacBooks, large windows, and the CEO bikes in the office.” 3 stars
