Director: Shawn Levy
Synopsis: Billy and Nick, two very good and experienced salesmen find themselves in deep shit as their boss decided to close his company down. By accident, they got an internship at Google, hoping to fight with the youngsters to get a job at the globally known company, with little knowledge in terms of technology.
The Thumb-Up(s): The storyline, although very common and predictable, has a very good message behind it, which I think is very nice and important especially to youngsters nowadays (sorry, aunty talk now). It is also a comedy without the lame jokes that you will simply enjoy watching, especially if you are a techy person. I also love how there is a diversity of races, characters and personalities in each of the very roles in the movie. Very heart-warming kinda movie, at least to me personally! :)
The Thumb-Down(s): Hmmm... Perhaps it looks too much like a hard-selling commercial for Google? And not much of acting can be said?
Verdict: Very predictable story yet a movie that you and your kids could learn a lot from.
3.5 out of 5
