    This had such a light, comfortable tone and feel to it. It made you feel like you were part of or wanted to be part of their world. Everything in this was so natural and inviting. The acting, music and tone of it was all a perfect fit for this story. This story is about a young girl who started an online clothing store that is growing by leaps and bounds and has become a topic for discussion with the board members and share holders. They believe that the company may be growing too fast and could possibly implode. They force her to search for an experienced CEO to take over so that pressure can be taken off of her and better secure the future of the company. As she reluctantly searches she is trying to juggle keeping her marriage afloat and deal with this new Intern that has shown up and has been assigned to her because of a new senior Intern recruitment project the company started. Robert Deniro plays the eager and able senior who takes on this Intern position due to wanting another challenge in life. Together they both end up learning from one another as they enter this new chapter in their lives. Robert Deniro was the very definition of debonair in this. Never seen him be anything more than a hard guy so this was refreshing to see. Anne Hathaway was also very organic in this role as she is in mostly everything. It was fun and funny. Really easy to enjoy. It also had the lesson of learning to let go and to be confident in what you were meant to do. The scenery was also very pretty and filled with life. Nice camera angles and views of the architecture. Surprisingly out of all the good feeling the movie gives you it delivers real heartfelt moments that tug on your tear ducts a little. A really good enjoyable movie. Everything was evenly paced and put together properly to keep your attention all the way through. Clever wit and charm coming from everyone. You never have trouble believing any of them and doesn't contain any dull moments. 4 out of 5 STARS

    A widowed 70 year-old retiree becomes bored after a while and looks for a new challenge, feeling that he has not outlived his usefulness. In a public relations move an online fashion company starts an internship for senior citizens. Ben Whitaker (Robert DeNiro) signs on and begins to work at the company run by Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway). The differences between Generation X and the Silent Generation lead to some clever age jokes. The differences in work ethic and loyalty of an older working group of people is highlighted. Since Ben is not in competition for anyone else’s job, nor does he need the job, he can give unbiased advice and say the proper thing at the right time as well. He doesn’t wait to be asked to the right thing and looks for ways to make the workplace better for those around him. He begins to feel like everyone’s Uncle Ben, a trusted confidant with the wisdom of an elder from another time. Ben begins a new romance and develops new friendships in a story that has a happy ending. Nancy Myers does a wonderful job in writing and directing this “feel good” movie. My wife and I liked it so much that we bought it after renting it, with the intent of watching it again and again.

    Date night movie!

    Great date night movie (trust me guys!) I love that Ben ( the DeNiro character) is a successful and fulfilled senior who is just looking for opportunities to expand his life experience - not a needy senior who is trying to prove something. I loved that Junes (the Hathaway character) is a successful woman giving 110% to develop her business - and counting on her spouse to take the responsibility of the home front. I think the director, Nancy Myers, did a good job avoiding the pitfalls of stereotyping the characters. We like Jules even though she is a demanding micromanager - in part because she give a great deal of freedom to her employees who clearly like her and want to please her. We like Ben, even though he clearly misses his late wife, he has embraced this new phase of his life and you know if this particular opportunity didn't work out for him he would have found some other challenge. I liked that the relationships between the characters were believable without getting "preach-y". A very satisfying watch.

    There are always a few things that will never go unnoticed in a Nancy Meyers film. First, the acting portrayed by Anne Hatheway, Robert Deniro and Renee Russo are superb! Secondly, the dialogue is always full of wit, charm and authenticity when relating to the characters and their experiences. Lastly, one of my favorites, is the lustrous set design! "The Intern" serves up a wonderful depiction of modern age branding of the highly influential technology that comes with running a business. It's smart dialogue and wonderful acting are infectious and the cinematography is all around stunning. Meyer's, in turn directs another lovingly memorable film with an overly endearing message of "it's never too late to accomplish ones dreams".

    As unbelievable as this story line is these two actors make it work. Sure some young hot mom is going to hire a seventy plus senior and he will be her first assistant. This must of caused every young chicks head in the theatre to explode as in the end of the Kingsman movie. Not a chick movie for sure and probably puts Hathaway down there with Jennifer Gardner under the how could you list. Yes who would leave Ben Affleck? Its a seniors dream to be Hathaway's go to guy but everyone knows DiNiro is not the Nice Guy ( Goodfellas, Meet the Parents, The Family) so why force it ? Have Hathaway dump the husband and runaway to an island paradise with DiNiro. Don't worry the story plot comes nowhere close to that. Cute but engaging.

    Advertised and pictured as having a digital hd code. Ordered on website. When delivered there was no code nor did the cover show that there would be one. Figured it was a shipping error so I take it to Best Buy store. Nope, they tell me it isn't supposed to have a code. They don't even offer one with a code. I showed them my online purchase proving my claim and ended up getting a refund. Movie is good, cheap price but nowadays I almost always want the hd code. Don't buy this online if you want the code. You'll be disappointed.

    I got this during a best buy flash sale and its worth allot more than I paid for it first off its a lot bigger than you think it will be and second of all the sound is fantastic you can actually plug a subwoofer into this but you don't need to everything sounds great in this and the bass is really good you actually have to activate the bass because they think you'll buy the subwoofer. But you don't need to by the subwoofer the bass is excellent. it's a great speaker. I highly recommend. And ps this speaker also has blutooth excellent excellent speaker!

    Great casting putting both Hathaway and DeNiro in one movie. I'll admit that I watched this thinking that it'll just be another comedy. The characters are what made this movie a great one. It's a story about two different people from two different places in time and how they were able to develop a friendship in spite of their old and new expectations and how with their personal conflict they were able to see the person instead of just the employee and how their perception eventually changed because of that. Great movie with a heart!
