Far and away exceeded anything I would have expected from a light, mainstream comedy. It's not a classic but it is an incredibly charming film with a feel-good story that ultimately you can't help but root for because DeNiro's lead is so likable.
It's a platonic rom-com. De Niro plays the most perfect man that ever lived and has nothing but the best suggestions. He's a father figure to Ann Hathaway, and the incredible Rene Russo falls in love with him. The secret is to wear a suit and carry a handkerchief because ladies are always going to cry. I know that's true at my office. Women are always crying. Thank goodness for perfect men in suits.
Why do Feel-Good movies get such a bad rep? Should we always feel like crap after a screening? If it does not break you, then it's no good? Why is the emotional film the premature baby of film? Why are feelings so under-appreciated, underrated & always deemed cheesy, corny, lame, emo, campy, sappy and kitschy?Why must we judge harshly the film with feelings, sentiments and heart? Insightful, true & relatable for me.
One of the year's finest dramas. Not only does it intelligently examine the generation gap between millennial and baby boomers, but it thoughtfully explores contemporary sociological ideas about what it means to be a man or a woman in society (I winced at the bar scene in the trailer until I saw how nicely it plays in the film). Then there's the structure, which starts broad but then zeroes in on the two great leads.
Despite having a knack to make charming romcoms, Meyers self-sabotages her premise. The Intern is about fitting in with the times while maintaining a certain humbleness before those who have what is irreplaceable: life experience. While the film is a glimpse into 90s Hollywood in modern cinema - and some of the good that came with it - it also shows that the cinematic language has evolved but Myers didn't.
This movie has the "x" factor that makes it so lovable. 4.5 stars for the movie but 10 stars for Hathaway and DeNiro - each. Cute story, beautiful chemistry. I really really love the movie and enjoyed it a LOT. And I felt really good after watching the movie, so, well done!
It's pretty good. Has a lot of substance. DeNiro is cute as well. The acting was a bit fake around some situations, but didn't bother so much. I had tears in my eyes many times. Recommend it for family evenings.
