Handles its male characters about as well as a Michael Bay film handles its females.

Apparently the modern male is a cheating, unkempt, chauvinistic, ill mannered, and immature manchild with no good role models while the fantastically flawless 'classic male' of 'the good old days' in De Niro is free of any of the massive prejudices of his time. Comparatively, the women of the film come out smelling like roses.

Beyond that the film is a mixed bag. Decently produced and tries to be charming, but the laughs are never notable and the messages often come off smug and preachy. I do think Hathaway did a decent job but it's contrasted by De Niro's extremely bland performance. All in all an interesting premise and opportunity fairly squandered.

From the beginning to end, The Intern has you bored out of your mind. Robert DeNiro and Anne Hathaway can't even save how awful the script and movie is. Both have extremely disappointing performances, and The Intern is Nancy Meyers at her worst.

This was listed as a comedy but I didn't laugh once. In addition, the movie is very very slow. Jules is way to unorganized to run a successful startup.

The most generic film ever made. Robert DeNiro is fine. Anne Hathaway is fine. The film feels an hour too long, the jokes don't work at all and the drama feels forced. Still, I didn't hate it.

De Niro is effortlessly excellent as ever but the film is too long and uninteresting. Hathaway plays her role like the script was penned by a Vanity Fair intern. Only watch if you have 2 hours to completely waste.

Just saw this movie a week ago on netflix and was disappointed. From the unfunny student film script to the **** camera angles and cliche music this is horrible. How could people give this a score higher than a 1 or 2? This movie is still badJust saw this movie a week ago on netflix and was disappointed.

Wow. DeNiro is wonderful but the whole scrip spews forth wannabe women cliches. DeNiro is condescending dealt with in the early scenes with ageist claptrap. You can’t do spoilers for this film as the plot is so obvious from the start. Yes,Wow. DeNiro is wonderful but the whole scrip spews forth wannabe women cliches.

Robert De Niro teaches boys how to become men by giving them lessons on work place apparel (aka always wear a suit), organization (aka desks never look like they're actually being used, but rather preserved for a tour of scholars to marvel atRobert De Niro teaches boys how to become men by giving them lessons on work place apparel (aka always wear a suit), organization (aka desks never look like they're actually being used, but rather preserved for a tour of scholars to marvel at the immaculate symmetry) and by revealing to them that real men carry handkerchiefs so they can offer it to the crying ladies.

Asides from that De Niro serves as Anne Hathaway's father, friend, life coach, therapist, zen master and all in all manly man swag master shoulder to lean on. So much so that they spend a night in bed together wearing bath robes while Hathaway cries. I'm not kidding, it actually happens.

Also the script writer gets to vicariously vent through Anne Hathaway's character by going on a rant about how men these days all look like children with all the video games, t-shirts and neck beards. Everybody knows real men wear suits, drink vodka martinis and introduces themselves by saying their last names first.

Oh, and after cheating on Hathaway her husband wins her back with part of his little speech including this line,

"It's a confusing world out there, and who I am got messed up for a minute."

Don't yah just hate when in this confusing world you find yourself sleeping with your wife one minute and then with another woman the next? I think we can all relate to that. See, any affair can be smoothed over just by reminding your significant other that the world is confusing. For example, 'I don't know what happened honey! One minute we were making love, the next minute I was f$*#ing your best friend... Please take me back I was confused!'
