Really funny film with great characters - The Internship review by PV

Spoiler Alert
05/03/2014

OK, so this movie isn't perfect, and has some irritating elements - not least of which the fact that it's almost a great big long pitch for Google - (A Pitchoodle?) - but it is really good fun and it made me laugh.

I found the fish out of water plot full of zest and fun, and the double act of the leads carries the movie wonderfully. The nerdy characters are comic book - but no harm in that - and the wonderful Mr Chetty deserves a whole movie of his own. I suppose we can expect a great many more social network/internet-type movies - so why not?

The script is well-written and clever - despite some perhaps unnecessary crudeness - with some zinging dialogue in the double act lead. (In fact, I'd recommend turning on the subtitles so you don't miss any of it).

The worst thing? The needless stereotype of the guy with the British accept as 'the baddie'. Why do Hollywood movies do this? If they used a black, a Jew, a Hispanic in that role they'd rightly be criticised.

Anyway, despite that racist silliness, I'm going to give this 4 stars as I found it a good fun film which made me laugh. Don't think too hard about it or try to analyse it (as I heard some pompous critics do on the BBC). Just watch the full horror/beauty of the absurdity of the internet.

And if you want, you can even watch on 'on the line'...
