Blu-ray Review: The Internship

20th Century Fox’s comedy The Internship comes out on Blu-ray and DVD today. If you want an extremely in-depth take on the film, check out David’s review, but after the break you can see what I think of the home release.

In The Internship, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson play layer-off watch salesmen who get an internship at Google. They are not the most computer literate, nor or they acclimated with the professional and social world of tech companies, so hilarity ensues. Unfortunately, the premise is about 10 years too old, the jokes are a bit flat, and the whole thing comes off as a two hour ad for Google.

However, if you are a fan of the film, then you are probably excited for the Blu-ray Combo Pack. While it does come with the Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD copy of the film (in both Unrated and theatrical form), the extras are a bit skimpy. There’s about 9 minute of deleted/extended scenes and audio commentary from director Shawn Levy. The highlight of the pack is the 17 minute featurette called “Any Given Sunday”, which details the work that went into the Quidditch game. It’s shot like an NFL Films documentary, and even has the narrator (who I believe is Scott Graham).

Overall, it’s a mediocre package for a mediocre film.
