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.
