The Intern

"Nancy Meyers delivers another funny, warm, smart and sophisticated comedy for adults that features Robert De Niro in perhaps his most likeable performance ever." - Pete Hammond

"The creative force behind such later-in-life comedies like 'Something’s Gotta Give' and 'It’s Complicated' knows her way around mature relationships. But this time with the infectiously likeable 'The Intern,' it’s not romance at the center but rather an inventive spin on a workplace comedy. Robert De Niro, as good as he has ever been in this genre, plays Ben, a 70-year-old retired widower who is sick of the new routine in his life and answers an ad for a senior internship at one of those e-commerce clothing companies. As founder/owner Jules Ostin’s top lieutenant (played nicely by Book Of Mormon’s Andrew Rannells) says, 'wouldn’t you rather have someone with all this experience than someone who has played Beer Pong for the past four years?' It’s an innovative idea and, much to the reluctance of Jules (a terrific Anne Hathaway), Ben is assigned to her office. As the film moves along  it becomes clear that Ben has much to offer and vice-versa  despite the generation gap between them. Meyers knows her way around a comic line and there are lots of gems here. Of course, this set-up with a retired senior who once worked at a phone book company and now finds himself smack in the middle of a facebook-driven cyber world is irresistable.

"'The Intern' is a genuine crowd pleaser in every way.  The pairing of De Niro and Hathaway is inspired and the film says a lot about living your life to the fullest, no matter what your age. I say GO." - Pete Hammond, Deadline Hollywood
