The Internship Trailer: Watch Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson Fail to Recapture the Magic of Wedding Crashers

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | March 20, 2013 | Comments ()


It's been a long eight years for Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson since The Wedding Crashers. They have managed to keep relatively busy, but mostly with terrible projects like Marley and Me, You, Me, and Dupree, Four Christmases, Couples Retreat and Fred Claus. During that time, you can count on one hand the number of quality projects they've been involved in, although you'd only need one finger to add up Vaughn's good movies (a supporting role in Into the Wild). It makes sense, then, that the two would re-team and attempt to re-conjure the magic of their last great movie.

Unfortunately, The Internship is not going to do it. It comes from Shawn Levy (Real Steel, Night at the Museum) and it's about what you'd expect from Shawn Levy, although there is plenty of product placement for Google.

It's such a shame, too. Those guys were bad-ass comedic actors for awhile. I seriously miss the "good" Vince Vaughn.

    Wow, that looks F@#$ing terrible. Why Google WHY!?

    Rose Byrne looks hot though....

    I only watched this because they filmed a scene at my office, and I thought maybe you could scene Atlanta.

    That is literally the most interesting thing I have to say about this trailer. Hopefully Anchorman 2, currently filming at my office, will be funnier.

    I'll watch this, TAKE MY MONEYS!

    Magic of wedding crashers? Look, sucking isn't magic. It's just what Vince Vaughn was born to do.

    Even a stopped clock tells the correct time twice a day.

    I don't even care if it sucks, because DYLAN O'BRIEN.

    I really appreciate this comment.

  • JeanUK

    I dont know, I'll probaby see it. Most likely 2-1 tickets with a pal.

    Real Steel was.... actually pretty good. I walked in, prepared to hate it like everyone else for being a creatively-bankrupt piece of shit, but it was one of the bigger surprises that year. Hugh Jackman playing a scumbag dad, actually coherent robot fights, Evangeline Lilly in hot pants.

    But I still don't know why Rose Byrne's in this, she's proper fit.

    I miss the Clay Pigeons Vince Vaughn.

    Still, it's nice to hear that "Thrift Shop" song, because that sure doesn't happen enough.

    *Nitpick. It was REAL Steel, and actually it was a pretty fun movie. Not worldshaking, but a decent bit of entertainment. You reviewed it, as I recall. Fun fact: the boxing consultant for that film was Sugar Ray, so it better have been good.

    Notable exceptions aside, good comedic chops last for only a very short time window. A band of comedic actors surf the wave of a great paradigm for a while and turn out great work, and then the world shifts as they become part of an inevitably stale zeitgeist. Always has been the case; always will be the case. The sad bit comes when they attempt to cling onto greatness desperately, like a poodle onto my tasty salami shoes. The Buddhists say all misery comes from desire and attachment; the poodle and the comedic actor are alike in that they have not learnt this lesson at all. It's even more tragic because if they simply accepted this new world order and moved on to, say, a few great dramatic roles or being a rottweiler, then they could - as many have shown in the past - flourish.
    I pity the poodle who does not become the rottweiler and I pity the Vince Vaughn who doesn't see how good he was in Into The Wild. Silly Poodle Vaughn, silly silly.

    I think this applies to all comics, not necessarily a 'band'.
    It also explains Robin Williams, Eddie Murphy, Steve Martin and... (Oh, I'm giving away my age here arent I?)

    Oh aye that it does. Although old Georgie boy Carlin managed to reinvent himself for something like 50 years... But then again he was a god
