QUICK TAKE:
Dramedy: A 70-year-old retired widower takes a job as an intern for the woman who runs a growing, online clothing retailer.
PLOT:
Ben Whittaker (ROBERT DE NIRO) is a 70-year-old retired widower who lives in Brooklyn and tries to keep himself busy. Having run out of things to do, he decides to reply to an ad looking for senior interns at About the Fit, an online clothing retailer. ATF's COO, Cameron (ANDREW RANNELLS), devised the program and ends up assigning Ben to be the intern for the company's skilled but increasingly harried founder, Jules Ostin (ANNE HATHAWAY). Being so busy and preoccupied with her investors wanting her to bring in an experienced CEO to run the rapidly growing company -- something that means she has little time for her stay-at-home husband, Matt (ANDERS HOLM), and their young daughter, Paige (JOJO KUSHNER) -- Jules has already forgotten she approved the program. And considering she already has an assistant in the over-worked and under-appreciated Becky (CHRISTINA SCHERER), Jules doesn't want an intern.

The supervisor of the interns, Jason (ADAM DEVINE), feels bad for Ben, what with others such as tech guru Lewis (JASON ORLEY) and Davis (ZACK PEARLMAN) having plenty to do. But Ben finds a kindred spirit in the company's older, in-house masseuse, Fiona (RENE RUSSO), and ends up getting to know Jules when he temporarily takes over as her driver. While she initially doesn't want him knowing much about her, she eventually comes to recognize and appreciate his previous work experience and current outlook on life. As she uncomfortably continues her search for a possible CEO to run her company, she and Ben form a friendship that goes beyond work, all while sparks start to fly between him and Fiona.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Some older teens might, especially if they're fans of anyone in the cast.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For some suggestive content and brief strong 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!!!
