Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine75 - Nancy Meyers (Somethings Gotta Give, It's Complicated, The Holiday) is not one for the 3 act structure. Instead the scenes stretch out as a day-in-the-life type storytelling, which allows you to really get invested in the characters. It's not an easy approach to pull off, as you could easily feel the movie is too long or be turned off by the non-traditional beats; but it's such good writing, your just all in!

Rob from GuysFilmQuest70 - The ending was disappointingly flat and uninspired. It felt like the writer got a more interesting project and just decided to wrap things up. The rest of the movie was interesting, albeit a little cheesey. There are at least four acceptable directions the ending could have gone, and they just pulled the proverbial plug.

Minnesota Man65 - The least tedious Nancy Meyers movie to date, suprisingly charming.

Sober Film Critic James Brown61 - This weekend's The Intern won't win any awards. It won't do wonders at the box office. It won't be beloved by critics. What Nancy Meyers's comedy will do is offer a fun, lighthearted romp featuring two heavyweight actors and a lovable supporting cast.

Bryan Lienesch56 - The real frustration here is Robert DeNiro's character. He's an implausibly perfect shapeshifter. He goes from quiet loner, to weird intern, to popular intern, to the CEO's personal confidant, to pep talk sister soldier. He's literally everybody's saving grace. If he's that perfect, Jules Ostin (Hathaway) should hand thecompany over to him while simultaneously marrying him and kicking her old husband to the curb. Sheesh.
