Two salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital age find their way into a coveted internship at Google, where they must compete with a group of young, tech-savvy geniuses for a shot at employment.
Billy (Vince Vaughn) and Nick (Owen Wilson) are salesmen whose careers have been torpedoed by the digital world. Trying to prove they are not obsolete, they defy the odds by talking their way into a coveted internship at Google, along with a battalion of brilliant college students. But, gaining entrance to this utopia is only half the battle. Now they must compete with a group of the nation's most elite, tech-savvy geniuses to prove that necessity really is the mother of re-invention.Written by

What the shit is this? Why is this on the get psyched mix?
Because I gotta throw you a curve-ball every now and again, or you get bored, and the mix doesn't have its intended effect.
No, I want to get rev'd up, and this song's not doing it.
Oh, really? I defy you to crush this chorus and not get psyched.
Not gonna happen.
Don't ya think?

A nice film about team spirit
If you've seen Vince Vaugn and Owen Wilson in other movies you know the way the act doesn't change from one film to the other and this is still the case. It definitely helps if you are a little bit of a fan and like these actors. If I were not a fan I'd be closer to 7 stars but that still makes it well worth watching. The film has a little dose of everything centered around the comedy. The film has some funny characters, my favorite side roll being Will Ferrel who always brings his quirky inappropriate douche baggy behavior performed to perfection. Never get tired of that. In conclusion the film is well worth a watch even if you are not a big fan of Vaughn, Wilson and Ferrel. Any cynical review is out of place because this film is lovable. If you are looking to be blown away maybe you should keep looking but worth the time.
