Movie Review #1: The Internship (2013)

While many things in life are complicated, I like to keep some things in mine simple.

I watched The Internship yesterday in my comfortable home. I pre-recorded it as I missed it last year when it was aired in cinemas.

Movie reviews are one of those things I like to keep it simple.

General overview of THE INTERNSHIP:
It talks about two middle-aged men who lost their jobs as salesmen of watches, due to the technological age where everyone uses handphones to check the time, and that includes me too!  They then proceeded to find other jobs, and they landed an internship with Techno company, GOOGLE. In the internship, there were many young 21-year-old kids competing with Nick and Billy's team to earn permanent positions in Google at the end of the summer internship.

On the scale of 1 to 10, 

Overall Impression: 4/10
This movie is rather boring. Considering it as a comedy as it intended to be, it was certainly not to my taste.

Plot: 4/10
Many parts of the movie were very predictable, nothing especially special to attract an audience. I simple watched it because I heard it was a great movie. Although it gave a rather good after-effect, there was no message to be taken home. No impact, no particular impression other than the importance of teamwork maybe?

Originality / Something new: 3/10

Would you recommend it? 
I wouldn't do so. Not my taste. 

Just to let you know, I am new in this reviewing movies thing, so bear with my newbie-ness.
