(2013) (Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy: Two forty-something friends recently laid off as watch salesmen enroll in Google's internship program for a shot at their dream jobs.
- Billy (VINCE VAUGHN) and Nick (OWEN WILSON) are a couple of forty-something watch salesmen who recently lost their jobs when their company folded. Suddenly thrust into a tight job market, they suddenly have to confront the fact that they have limited job skills and are way behind the times when it comes to the latest technology.
Tired of never really getting ahead, Billy convinces Nick to enroll in Google's internship program run by the very serious and demanding Roger Chetty (AASIF MANDVI). Once there, the dozens of interns - almost all of which are 20 years younger than Billy and Nick and are brilliant in their various fields of computers, science, business, and technology - are split into teams of six and pitted against each other in various challenges and competitions.
Billy and Nick's team consists of Google wunderkind, Lyle (JOSH BRENER); the ultra-cynical Stuart (DYLAN O'BRIEN); the home-schooled, overly nervous Yo-Yo (TOBIT RAPHAEL); and the alternately shy and flirty Neha (TIYA SIRCAR). Billy runs afoul of Graham (MAX MINGHELLA), the arrogant captain of a rival team of interns. Nick, meanwhile, falls for Dana (ROSE BYRNE), a Type-A Google executive.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Older teens may be drawn to the film for its main plot and the younger actors in the cast, while those waiting for the reteaming of Vaughn and Wilson might have interest as well.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For sexuality, some crude humor, partying, and language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
