The Internship is a 2013 comedy film starring Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson and Rose Byrne.Vaughn and Wilson are Billy and Nick, two employees of a firm that can't seem to embrace the technological changes the firm is going through and are aptly told by their boss that they're literally obsolete, and subsequently fired. However, Billy discovers that an internship at the headquarters of Google is available, and manages to land the duo a spot. Unfortunately they end up competing with hundreds of the world's best and brightest for the positions, and with their obvious lack of digital savvy.....Hilarity Ensues.
This movie provides examples of:
10-Minute Retirement: Billy decides to quit after screwing up the Help Desk challenge, only to be swayed over by Nick and rejoin the team for the final Sales quest.
Artistic License: Neha describes Hentai as anime where the woman are ravaged by tentacles which is technically true, but Hentai is an american label for any Japanese anime and manga porn and is not limited to just tentacles.
Eric Andre is Sid, the Google exec Mr. Chetty keeps taking the mic from.
Book Ends. Near the beginning of the movie after Nick and Billy lose their jobs Nick gets a job working for his sisters's Jerkass boyfriend selling mattresses only for Billy to show up and convince him to try and get jobs at Google. Near the end, during Billy's 10-Minute Retirement he gets a job working for a Jerkass selling motorized scooters when Nick shows up to convince him to go back to Google.
Don't Try This at Home: Do not break fraternization regulations at your workplace, and definitely do not take pictures of yourself or your friends getting drunk at a strip club. Both are very likely to wreck your career.
Evil Brit: Max Minghella plays Graham as a smarmy, no holds barred competitor who takes every opportunity to degrade everyone else around him.
This trope is played with at the end when Headphones, as part of his Crowning Moment Of Awesome, tells him that his accent is "Bullshit", implying that Graham is faking the Brit part of the trope to make himself sound cooler.
Dana initially comes across this way when Google is reviewing Billy and Nick's webcam application as she is the most dismissive of them. However, it is revealed that she is neither evil nor British.
Fanservice: The entire stripclub sequence, especially in the unrated version.
Hollywood Nerd: Basically played straight, subverted and averted throughout the movie.
Impossible Hourglass Figure: The woman Nick's brother-in-law decides to assist in the mattress store. It's the first thing he even notices about her.
Informed Attribute: Somewhat played with. Both Billy and Nick are said to be excellent salesmen with Billy supposedly selling prosciutto to a rabbi at some point. Played straight where Billy tries to explain his idea for an app and explain how it's not like Instagram. Doesn't help that he calls in Exchangagram. This goes pretty poorly. Subverted in that him and Billy are actually shown to be excellent salesmen, his poor pitch of Exchangagram is due to he and Billy's strategy involving them charming potential clients, something at that point, Billy does not have the luxery to do.
"The Reason You Suck" Speech: Graham gives one to Billy at the sauna, noting that he himself doesn't need to win but simply wait for Billy to screw up as he always does. Cue: Billy failing at the Help Desk challenge.
Rogue Juror: Lyle is taking a stand defending Billy and Nick's application against the other members of the council who wanted them out immediately.
Rousing Speech: Billy gives a Believe-In-Yourself speech to the team when they are way behind at the Quidditch game.
