I agree with those who have found this movie enjoyable. It hits a few false notes, apparently in trying too hard to be "entertaining", but overall is a mature, plausible story without the phony and exaggerated hostility and violence of a typical feature film.

Good movie for family.

A funny, refreshingly-gentle and surprisingly-wholesome story that doesn't bore, but certainly tugs the heartstrings. 70-year-old Ben gets a job as a senior intern for successful online-retail startup Jules, sparking a relationship that grows beyond the workplace into a true gem of a friendship. I loved all of the relationships that blossomed between characters of differing ages, and seeing how each character's life changed through his or her interaction with the others--beautiful.

I thought it was going to be more like internship, was more sad/drama, but decent... sometimes tried to set scene too hard

Amidst the stacks of videos featuring violence and crude humour sits this classy gem.
Bravo Mr DeNiro

Delightful movie. Was a bit skeptical at first, but turned out to be very good. Almost didn't want it to end.

Totally agree with steve77. We went to see The Intern when first-run movie and have watched it several times since on DVD. Never gets old. (Oh, and don't forget Anne Hathaway, Steve; she's terrific, as usual.)

Jules: The truth is... something about you makes me feel calm, or more centered, or something. And I could use that. Obviously

Ben: "You're never wrong to do the right thing."
Jules: Who said that, you?
Ben: Yeah. But I'm pretty sure Mark Twain said it first.

Lines from the job interview:
- I read once, 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.
===
- Where'd you go to school?
-- I went to Northwestern.
- Hey, my brother went to Northwestern.
-- Probably not at the same time.
- Probably not. He graduated in 2009.
-- Class of '65
- Wow, what was your major? Do you remember?
===
- Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
-- When I'm 80?
- Yeah, sure. Yeah, whatever. Um... Wait. Did not realize you were 70.

Ben (Opening narrative:) Freud said, "Love and work. Work and love. "That's all there is." Well, I'm retired, and my wife is dead. As you can imagine, that's given me some time on my hands. My wife's been gone for three and a half years. I miss her in every way. And retirement? That is an ongoing, relentless effort in creativity. At first, I admit I enjoyed the novelty of it. Sort of felt like
I was playing hooky. I used all the miles I'd saved and traveled the globe. The problem was, no matter where I went, as soon as I got home, the nowhere-to-be thing hit me like a ton of bricks.
I realized the key to this whole deal was to keep moving.

Jules: So we were always told we could be anything, do anything. And I think guys got, maybe not left behind, but not quite as nurtured, you know? I mean, like, we were the generation of "you go, girl."We had Oprah. And I wonder sometimes how guys fit in, you know? They still seem to be trying to figure it out. They're still dressing like little boys. They're still playing video games. Well, they've gotten great. So...
Davis: I love video games!
Lewis: Oh, boy.
Jules: How, in one generation, have men gone from guys like jack Nicholson and Harrison Ford to... take Ben, here. A dying breed. You know? Look and learn, boys. Because if you ask me, this is what cool is.
