The Internship Review
I don’t know whether this film is just an advert for Google internships, but if they’re a thing, I definitely want to check them out.
The Internship follows two middle-aged men who have recently lost their job as sales people. While one has resided himself to being stuck in a dead-end job for the rest of his life, the other decides that he wants more out of it and finds an internship program at Google where you could end up with a full-time job there if you pass the internship.
It’s hilarious to see these two men who are clearly boomers trying to work out what the Internet is and how they fit into it. Being sales people their job has been people focused, it hasn’t been internet focused, and this is a whole new world for them and it’s very funny to watch them deal with all the changes and also having to work together with other people who also want the job.
What I really enjoyed about this film was how it gives you that motivation and inspiration to make the most of your life. We see from these two men that they could be seen as passed their prime and should be in a job that is keeping them happy already, however seeing them make this sudden change in being able to do something out of the box was really inspirational and showed you that there isn’t a time limit to being happy or finding your perfect job and if you need to make a change and are financially able to then you can.
I also loved the dynamic between the two men and their teammates who were of course twenty-somethings, fresh out of college and looking for a job at Google. It showed the difference in the generations and how much pressure there is on young people these days to find jobs that will keep them financially happy for the rest of their lives. It’s nice to see these father figures come in and explain that you don’t have to have everything figured out and if you want to make a change there is no time limit on that and you can do that whenever you need to.
It’s a very good film with a lot of comedy within it and the characters are really enjoyable. As I said, I do describe them as boomers but they are not the typical gammons that we have come to know, but more the family friendly father figures that you know will always give the best hugs. It’s a lovely heartwarming film and a very easy watch too, so if you’re looking for something to uplift you or to give you that motivation to make a career change or do something in your life that is out of the box then this movie is one for you.
