The Internship is an American film about two salesmen, whose careers have been destroyed by the rise of the internet and electronic media, so in order to get themselves back on their feet, they apply for an internship at Google, but they must fight against many young geniuses for a full-time job.

I have to say that this was quite disappointing. I normally like this sort of comedy film, which is just nice to watch, however in this case, the whole thing was completely predictable and cheesy, which was not at all as entertaining to watch.

Obviously, I liked the fact that the film itself was very simple to watch, and the comedy was just enjoyable enough to watch, despite being overall quite poor, predictable and pretty annoying to watch.

Also, this film just seemed to really go on a bit, as they were lengthy sequences, such as a near-10-minute long one in a night club, that didn’t contribute at all to the main story of the film, making it feel as if I had wasted time just watching these parts of the film.

Overall, then, I’ll give this a 6.1, because although it was simple and relatively enjoyable to watch, it was a very poor and predictable thing overall.
