In Theaters This Weekend: Reviews of 'The Internship,' 'The Purge' and More
What THR's critics say about the movies opening this week.
If you're interested in a new career, consider interning at Google.
At least that's what Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson attempt to do in their latest comedy, The Internship. The Wedding Crashers co-stars team up again in Shawn Levy's new flick as two old-fashioned salesmen who've lost their jobs selling watches in an era where smartphones have made timepieces somewhat obsolete. The pair try their luck with a new career and end up scoring internships at Google headquarters in Mountain View, CA. The movie also stars Rose Byrne, Jessica Szohr and John Goodman.
