Owen Gleiberman
Entertainment Weekly

There’s a reason that it lacks the highs of "Wedding Crashers": The Internship puts us on the side of those who are trying to hold on to respectability, not tear it down.

Sheila O'Malley

The moments of sentiment, when they come, feel fully earned, and they come out of characterization.

Steve Persall
Tampa Bay Times

The humor is an underdog's fantasy, tapping the same vein Murray bled dry with self-important camp counselors and military officers; the less cool they are, the harder they'll fall.

Roger Moore
McClatchy-Tribune News Service

Interns Wilson and Vaughn swap lines like veteran jazz musicians who still have a sense of play about them — an endless supply of nicknames, high-and-low fives, dated slang and goodwill — theirs for each other, and ours for them.

Richard Roeper
Chicago Sun-Times

The Internship is the movie version of a goofy dog that knows only a few tricks but keeps on looking at you and wagging his tail, daring you not to like him. Down, boy. You win.

Andrew Schenker
Slant Magazine

Shawn Levy's occasionally uproarious, warm-hearted comedy is about different generations educating each other, but it never seems rote.

Steven Rea
Philadelphia Inquirer

The Internship itself would be kind of charming, too, if this Google-recruitment film, this 119-minute commercial for Googliness, weren't so downright creepy.

Ken McIntyre
Total Film

Vaughn and Wilson. eight years on from "Wedding Crashers," the pair successfully rekindle their irascible shtick.

Scott Foundas

This big-hearted underdog comedy from director Shawn Levy is, much like its two leads, exceedingly affable and good-natured despite being undeniably long in the tooth.

Stephen Farber
The Hollywood Reporter

The actors do what they can to supply the texture missing from the script. Vaughn and Wilson riff together with pleasing professionalism.

Liam Lacey
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

Though by no means a good movie, The Internship floats along for fairly well for about half its length, thanks to the easy interplay between the two stars and a certain melancholic topicality.

Jen Chaney
Washington Post

The fact that this overlong, often preposterous comedy succeeds at all (which it does, only occasionally) proves that the Vaughn/Wilson charm can still work a measure of magic.

Claudia Puig
USA Today

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson may be the worst interns since Monica Lewinsky.

Joe Williams
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Congratulations, visitor. You have been randomly selected to beta test an entertainment-software product called “The Internship 2.0.”

Peter Travers
Rolling Stone

A flabby farce that might win a pass at the box office because it's just so cute and family friendly. But where's your edge, guys? Where are the laughs that walk a tightrope?

Ty Burr
Boston Globe

It’s the kind of Hollywood formula product that proves why the formula’s so hard to kill: simultaneously easy to like and impossible to respect.

Michael Phillips
Chicago Tribune

Levy surely knew that the script at hand didn't warrant a full two-hour running time; even if you enjoy The Internship, as my son did, it feels 20 minutes over-full at least. Cut out half of the "Flashdance" and "X-Men" references, and you're halfway there.

A.A. Dowd
The A.V. Club

The real star of The Internship is Google itself, and what a self-aggrandizing diva she is.

Kimberley Jones
Austin Chronicle

Product placement aside, there’s an admirable, even sweet, message about fellowship and misfit pride shot through the whole script, and Vaughn is rather touching as a kind of cuddly uncle figure to his fellow interns.

Rodrigo Perez
The Playlist

The Internship might be the best worst comedy of the year thus far.

Betsy Sharkey
Los Angeles Times

The movie is not exactly a laugh riot. But its comedy is amiable enough — and surprisingly clean.

Peter Rainer
Christian Science Monitor

There’s a potentially good comedy to be made about old-school guys trying to make a go of it in a youth-dominated digital marketplace, but director Shawn Levy and screenwriter Jared Stern overdose on moronic excursions.

Guy Lodge
Time Out London

It’s a testament to the duo’s jazzy comic chemistry that they wring some laughs from this dated, frankly sinister premise.

Tim Robey
The Telegraph

That the film ends up floundering is not really their fault. These two belong on screen together: when they’re not completing each other’s sentences, they’re completing them wrongly, which is even better.

Andrew O'Hehir

What makes The Internship especially unfortunate is that there are pieces of a better, funnier movie lying around here, pretty much unnoticed.

Bill Goodykoontz
Arizona Republic

The Internship has some funny moments. The cast is too talented for it to come up completely dry. But for a movie about a place so filled with ambitious climbers, it is far too lazy.

James Berardinelli

Everything about it feels stale: the actors, the story, the comedy, everything. And, to make matters worse, that everything goes on for an interminable two hours.

William Goss

In fact, The Internship rivals the aggressively bland “Larry Crowne” for sheer tepidness, if not worse due to the exhaustive product placement for a company whose real-life presence is unlikely to soon wane.

Manohla Dargis
The New York Times

Written by Mr. Vaughn and Jared Stern, The Internship spreads the corporate gospel with sporadic jokes, the usual buddy-film shenanigans (a visit to a strip club, a teasingly shared bed) and a lot of motivational cant.

Kyle Smith
New York Post

It seems more likely that a dumb movie will lead only to a time-wasting surge in applications from dummies. Maybe The Internship was secretly funded by Bing.

Peter Bradshaw
The Guardian

There is a creepy, undead feel to this lumbering comedy set in the offices of Google, and Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn have a distinct Baron Samedi look in their eyes.

Joe Neumaier
New York Daily News

Who let an unfunny, irritatingly acted two-hour commercial for Google onto multiplex screens?

Eric Hynes
Time Out New York

A movie sorely bereft of ideas, laughs and justification for the comic duo’s undifferentiating self-regard.

Stephanie Zacharek
Village Voice

For those of you on a really tight entertainment budget, you'll be paying at least 8 cents per minute not to laugh. Your money is better spent on beans and rice.
