When I heard Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson would be reuniting for a film after their blessed Wedding Crashers, I got justifiably excited. I like when Vaughn is in profane mode, and he made Wilson tolerable in their first go round. However, what we get here is just a terrible two-hour commercial for Google that dumbs down and sanitizes the duo. They play a couple of salesmen who lose their gigs when watches become obsolete. For reasons that are never really explained, the Vaughn character hones in on Google during his job search and convinces the Wilson character to compete with him in an intern contest, with the winners getting jobs with the hallowed Google. Vaughn, who co-wrote the screenplay, allegedly worked closely with Google when creating the film so, needless to say, there aren’t a lot of profanities and nude shots in this flick. Instead we get family-friendly Vaughn and Wilson, with the results being boring, unfunny and embarrassing.
