Review: ’The Intern’ is this week’s best new movie

Warner Bros. Pictures

I read once that musicians don’t 
retire. They stop when there’s no 
more music in them.  Well, I still
have music in me. Absolutely positive
about that.

While Mad Max and Inside Out have filled spots in my best films of 2015 list for their respective genres, the Nancy Meyers’ helmed “The Intern” gets the best comedy of the year from me.

You will walk out the theatre feeling good and has appreciation with things that we often overlook in the fast-paced, online world. The movie stars Academy Award winners Robert de Niro of the Godfather fame, and Anne Hathaway of Les Miserables and the Dark Knight Rises. De Niro plays an intern to Hathaway’s character, a hands-on, start-up owner forced to find a CEO by her investors, while juggling her duties as a mother and a wife. 

The movie is packed with hilarious scenes as characters face generational differences between them. The feel-good comedy does not have slapstick, which is a big plus for me.

The film also gives insights about life without being cheesy and melodramatic. De Niro, who often portrays intimidating characters, is a breath of fresh air on the big screen. Viewers will fall in love with his character’s wit and wisdom.

The Intern is a must-watch light-hearted, fun movie. It is may not be groundbreaking but it is one of the best movies I’ve watched this year.

Rating: 4.5/5
