A movie like The Intern is very easy to take shots at. I wanted to see it and I was still making fun of it. It’s as high-concept as it gets – a senior in life becomes an intern at a hip internet start-up – so much that the jokes write themselves. But the great thing about titan of lifestyle porn Nancy Meyers’ (What Women Want, Something’s Gotta Give) new movie is that she totally understands that and still makes a movie that works despite its cutesy, on-the-nose premise. If you’re looking for something with big surprises, this might not be for you. It’s formula filmmaking, professionally done. However, if you are looking for a movie so enjoyable that it wills you to leave the theater with a grin on your face, this might be up your alley. It was for me. I know it’s not a great movie, but I kind of love The Intern. I will watch it a lot on cable. It’s my Draft Day of 2015.
