Richard Roeper from the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a really nice 88 grade, stating: “With some genuinely insightful dialogue, a number of truly funny bits of physical business, and small scenes allowing us to get know and like a half-dozen supporting players, The Intern grows us on from scene to scene, from moment to moment.”

Mick LaSalle over at the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a 75 grade, saying: “The success of this film may ride entirely on the alchemy of these particular actors, but whatever is carrying it, The Intern gets there.”

Glenn Kenny at, gave it a 75 score, stating: “Here’s the thing: The Intern, while having its share of silly moments, is the most genuinely enjoyable and likable movie that Meyers — a longtime writer and producer before taking up directing — has put her name to since, oh, I don’t know, 1984’s “Irreconcilable Differences.”

Mark Olsen from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 70 grade. He stated: “With The Intern, Meyers has made another bright, contemporary American comedy with a lot on its mind — and works hard to make it look effortless.”

Leah Greenblatt from Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 67 score, saying: “Hathaway’s take on the underwritten Jules is refreshingly unshowy, but De Niro seems a little lost.”

Peter Travers over at Rolling Stone, gave it a 63 grade,saying: “It’s not much of a movie. But raging bull Robert De Niro, suited up to play for humor and heart, proves he can be a world-class charmer.”

Michael Phillips from the Chicago Tribune, gave it a 63 grade. He said: “Has its bright spots but is practically blinded by its own privileged perspective of life among the landed gentry of Brooklyn.”

James Rocchi from TheWrap, gave it a 60 grade, stating: “The Internship delivers what it promises, no more and no less, and faulting it for not being a rougher, tougher, smarter film about how much we all seem to live our lives through our work today would be like yelling at a spoon for not being a knife.”

Sara Stewart over at the New York Post, gave it a 50 score, stating: “Nancy Meyers is known for her obsession with kitchens — sun-drenched, timelessly chic architectural marvels that provide a safe haven for all the director’s characters. The Intern puts a new spin on this trope: Robert De Niro is the kitchen.”

Ann Hornaday from the Washington Post, gave it a 50 score. He stated: “Meyers seems content to make a nice movie about nice people doing their best to be nice to each other despite one or two not-nice things that happen along the way. That’s all very nice, but not particularly the stuff of potent or rousing entertainment.”

Brian Truitt over at USA Today, gave it a 50 grade,saying: “For someone of De Niro’s reputation, this Intern gig is a thankless job.”

Manohla Dargis over at The New York Times, gave it a 50 score, saying: “Mr. De Niro owns the movie from the moment he opens his mouth, and is staring into the camera and right at you.”

Stephen Farber over at The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 50 grade. He said: “Given the vacuity of the script, it must be admitted that Hathaway achieves something of a triumph. She’s always engaging and keeps the character on a human rather than superhuman scale.”

Guy Lodge from Variety, gave it a 40 grade, stating: “It takes all the leads’ considerable combined charm to forestall the aftertaste of the pic’s smug life lessons and near-comically blinkered worldview.”

Ty Burr over at the Boston Globe, gave it a 38 grade, saying: “The Intern is bizarrely retrograde, implying that every working woman only needs a cuddly Yoda daddy to make it in the world of business. It’s soft in the heart — and soft in the head.”

Finally, Joe Morgenstern over at the Wall Street Journal, gave it an awful 30 score, claiming: “This clumsy comedy, written and directed by Nancy Meyers, turns an implausible but intriguing premise into a tale of generational collision that reflects dimly on old and young alike.” Stay tuned.
