This is an absolutely fantastic movie that teaches phenomenal life lessons!!! So much to be gained by watching while entertaining every second!!! Outstanding acting (as expected)...this really is a five star movie!
Great movie at a great price! It's hard to enjoy new movies nowadays. Most of them have tons of profanity and bad story lines. This one is a hidden gem. My wife and I REALLY enjoyed it! Just get, watch it and you'll have a smile on your face. :)
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
Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway pair up perfectly in this comedy adventure about a man who is trying to get a job when he pretty much passed the hiring age (70) in this business world. He gets a job at an online fashion company, of which he knows nothing about and is told he is to be intern to the website's founder (Anne), but she only wants him for window dressing and doesn't expect him to be of much help. The twist is that he is of more help than she could ever imagine and the roles flip as he begins to mentor her. Great cast for these comic scenes.
