The Intern (2015, D: Nancy Meyers) S: Robert De Niro, Anne Hathaway, Rene Russo

70-year-old widower Ben Whittaker has discovered that retirement isn't all it's cracked up to be. Seizing an opportunity to get back in the game, he becomes a senior intern at an online fashion site, founded and run by Jules Ostin.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2361509/...ref_=hm_otw_t1

Opens this week.

I usually don't mind Nancy Meyers' work. I really liked It's Complicated.

Saw this last night and enjoyed it. It was a little cloying at times, but when it went in a slightly different direction toward the end I thought it got more interesting. Maybe I was just strongly relating to Hathaway's character, though.

I wish someone had suggested she try delegating instead of micromanaging. Seems like the actual solution to her problems got lost in the "you can have it all if you want it bad enough" message.

She and De Niro had a lot of great (platonic) chemistry. Good casting in general.

Watched this tonight and it was better than I thought it was going to be. The fat bearded red-head dude that's part of the intern team is that guy from the Key & Peel Substitute teacher skit - A-Aron.

Also, the girl who played Becky the assistant has some nice cakes.

Yeah, as much flak as he gets, I actually thought De Niro was great in this role.

It's a popcorn/fluff movie, but it's a pretty enjoyable one.

And of course, Tarantino agreed:

Wow, so people did see this movie. And we're 7 posts in now. I bought it a while back, but haven't gotten around to it. I guess I should, so I can see what all the hoopla is about.

It benefits if you go in thinking it'll be the worst crap ever.

Don't expect "hoopla" worthy.

Based on how active this thread has been, I fully expect a whole lotta hoopla. Perhaps even a few chuckles.

I saw this last month and thought I bumped this thread at the time, but I guess not. I didn't expect much, but thought it was fun and entertaining.

I hated "It's Complicated". Mainly for those obnoxious kids. But "The Intern" really surprised me. It was actually really good. And it was hands down DeNiro's best performance in years. He actually made me cry in one scene.

Just to even out this recent love fest, from the "Last Movie You Watched" thread:

Caught this on HBO. I found everyone to be obnoxiously nice and polite to each other. Even the third act "conflict" was handled so... sweetly. Barf.

My wife would run this movie on repeat in my house all day, if I would let her. However, I will allow it once a day. It was a pretty gentle and sweet movie with a good cast.

Yep enjoyed this as well. Wasn't what I thought it would be and of course I thought it would end in tragedy but didn't.

Favorite part - double fist bump at the desk after the you know what sequence. I found that to not only be hillarious but I could easily see this happening in real life.

This was a "nothing else to watch" rental highly enjoyed it. Acting was great, sweet lighthearted fun on a rainy afternoon

My wife watched this on HBO the other day. For some reason I thought this was a comedy.

Caught this a couple of times already since it started on HBO. Was pleasantly surprised.

Much better than Dirty Grandpa though it started off a little slow.

The scene with De Niro and Hathaway in the hotel talking while watching TV was probably the best scene,

Anne Hathaway annoys me, but in this movie, as well as about anything where she has long hair, makes the zipper on my pants a useless contraption.
