While it ain't Wedding Crashers 2, fans of the comedic duo will be more than happy with their latest film The Internship.  Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson plays seasoned salesman that are soon put out of their jobs due to the ever changing nature of business and technology in the 21st century.  They attempt to turn their lives around by joining Google as interns in hopes of landing a dream job with the number one ranked corporation to work for in America.

The chemistry together is spot on between the two and the supporting cast is adequate though nothing to shout home about.  My favorite scene showcasing this chemistry?  When the duo is interviewing for their internship with the Google employees via webcam at a public library.  The film while good won't have you rolling on the floor like Peeples will.  Still it makes for a good comedy before the summer blockbusters start to roll out.  

One of the things that holds this movie back is that at times the film becomes more of an infomercial for Google the company.  I know that it's hard to avoid because of the premise of the movie.  It's a nice look into the workings and social environment of the company, but it distracts from the comedy aspect of the film.

I would still recommend this film though, but would probably balk at paying full price for it.  The movie opens June 7th, rated PG-13.
