The Intern (2015) - Anne Hathaway Plays Boss in Workplace Comedy



On Saturday, I spent the gorgeous day doing a bit of shopping (my mother I and I indulged in some fall clothes shopping and fed our bead-crazy obsession for our jewelry) and then later, went and saw Nancy Meyers latest, The Intern. My favorite Nancy Meyers film has long been The Holiday, but having now seen this - which stars Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro, I do believe its title might be threatened. Why? Because The Intern is the kind of comedy (said comedic happenings are often unexpected as well, which is what makes them dazzle) that we often crave not to mention it has its share of heart-tugging moments.


The cast is brilliant, the writing great and the scene-stealer a pint-sized version of Anne Hathaway's character. But enough chit-chat. I had the chance to review this one on Silver Petticoat and that review went live today. It you'd like to read more about the movie or specific thoughts I walked away with, you can read it via the links down below.


The Intern – Workplace Comedy with Class and Charm

It has been a while since I saw Anne Hathaway in anything, but when I saw the trailer for this, the latest effort from director and writer Nancy Meyers, I instantly knew seeing The Intern was a must. Its promotional material promised a kind of return to one of my favorite roles for Anne, only this time the situation was reversed (she plays the boss hiring interns). With a talented cast (among them there is an alarming amount of nominations and prestigious wins), a popular screenwriter and the bubblegum “feel-good” quality of good comedy, this one had the promise to be a terrific comedy.

    1. I'm so glad, Bekah. It's a fun flick to see in theaters, especially given the action/adventure heavy fare (not that I don't love it too). :)

    1. It's really good, Maria. But then I do enjoy Nancy Meyers films, which probably means I was poised to love it. :)

  4. Nice review, Rissi! I love The Holiday too, so I guess I'll probably like this one! It looks like a winner. I really appreciate it when movies can be more adultish without creeping into R territory too! :)

    1. Thanks for reading, Sarah. I hope you do enjoy this one. There is a different "tone" to the film (it's not as romantic, for obvious reasons), but it's really cute. And I didn't feel like this one was on the edge of an R-rating (and I agree; those are unpleasant). If you were okay with The Holiday, you should be this one too. :)

    1. If you liked this one, I think you'd really enjoy The Holiday, Kaylee. Nancy has such a unique way of creating heart-tugging stories and moments! Let me know if/when you see it - and I'm super glad you liked The Intern. It's a really good feel-good flick. Glad you visited. :)
