The Intern: Big Screen Favorite is the Boss in Workplace Comedy

September 28, 2015 15 Comments
On Saturday, I spent a gorgeous day shopping (my mother and I went fall clothes shopping, and fed our bead-crazy obsession for jewelry making). Then later on, we went to see Nancy Meyers latest, The Intern.the intern

My favorite Nancy Meyers film has long been The Holiday, but having now seen this, I do believe its title might be threatened. Why? Because The Intern is the kind of comedy (unexpected scenes as well, which is why they dazzle) that we often crave but don’t often see. This to say nothing of the heart-tugging moments. It stars Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro.

The cast is brilliant, the writing great, but the one who steals scenes is a pint-sized version of Anne Hathaway’s character. But enough chit-chat. I had the chance to review this one on Silver Petticoat, a review that is now live. It you’d like to read more about the movie or specific thoughts I walk away with, you can read it now (links below).

The Intern – Workplace Comedy with Class and Charm

It has been a while since I saw Anne Hathaway in anything, but when I saw the trailer for this, the latest effort from director and writer Nancy Meyers, I instantly knew seeing The Intern was a must. Its promotional material promised a kind of return to one of my favorite roles for Anne, only this time the situation was reversed (she plays the boss hiring interns). With a talented cast (among them there is an alarming amount of nominations and prestigious wins), a popular screenwriter and the bubblegum “feel-good” quality of good comedy, this one had the promise to be a terrific comedy.

Content: the film is PG13 for some profanity [one use of the F-word]; and sexual humor.

    Eeeeek!! I saw this one yesterday with two of my sisters and we all LOVED it! Headed to TSP to read your review now. ;)

    • Rissi September 29, 2015 at 4:38 PM

      I'm so glad, Bekah. It's a fun flick to see in theaters, especially given the action/adventure heavy fare (not that I don't love it too). :)

  • Katie Garza September 29, 2015 at 11:54 AM

    Thanks for the great review. I have been thinking about seeing this movie, now I will. :)

    • Rissi September 29, 2015 at 4:31 PM

      Thank you for reading, Katie. I hope if/when you see this one you wind up enjoying it; Nancy Meyers has a great sense of humor or she must as her scripts are amazing! :)

  • Maria September 29, 2015 at 1:40 PM

    I keep seeing mentions of this movie everywhere and I really think I must see it.

    • Rissi September 29, 2015 at 4:31 PM

      It's really good, Maria. But then I do enjoy Nancy Meyers films, which probably means I was poised to love it. :)

  • Sarah September 30, 2015 at 4:22 PM

    Nice review, Rissi! I love The Holiday too, so I guess I'll probably like this one! It looks like a winner. I really appreciate it when movies can be more adultish without creeping into R territory too! :)

    • Rissi September 30, 2015 at 10:49 PM

      Thanks for reading, Sarah. I hope you do enjoy this one. There is a different "tone" to the film (it's not as romantic, for obvious reasons), but it's really cute. And I didn't feel like this one was on the edge of an R-rating (and I agree; those are unpleasant). If you were okay with The Holiday, you should be this one too. :)

  • Amanda Holmes September 30, 2015 at 8:29 PM

    I will have to put this on my list of movies to watch! It looks like a fun one.;)

    • Rissi September 30, 2015 at 10:54 PM

      It's really cute, Amanda. I hope you enjoy…! :)

  • Becky Ritta October 1, 2015 at 8:21 PM

    Saw this with my mom and sister last weekend, and we loved it!

    • Rissi October 3, 2015 at 12:02 AM

      I'm glad you enjoyed this one, Becky. It's a great feel-good movie in my opinion. Thanks so much for visiting. :)

  • October 2, 2015 at 11:27 PM

    Just saw this last night and loved it. I was tearing up in less then ten minutes into the movie. I have never seen The Holiday but now I really want too.

    • Rissi October 3, 2015 at 12:04 AM

      If you liked this one, I think you'd really enjoy The Holiday, Kaylee. Nancy has such a unique way of creating heart-tugging stories and moments! Let me know if/when you see it – and I'm super glad you liked The Intern. It's a really good feel-good flick. Glad you visited. :)
