If you didn't know, I love watching movies. I probably watch an average of 3-4 movies every month. I also love going to the movies alone. It is so relaxing to sit in silence with a theatre less than half full of people...I just love a good matinee. I am fully convinced this is every ambiverts dream!
A week ago, my friend Lynzi and I watched the movie The Internfeaturing Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro. The movie also had a few other A and B list celebrities sprinkled throughout, which I loved seeing! Long story short, I cannot fully express just how much I loved this movie!
I went into it excited because I had heard so many good things about it, but I must admit, there was a part of me that was a bit skeptical. I hoped that it was not just another cookie cutter movie about an old person struggling with social media and technology in an environment of young people. You know, where the millennials are constantly teaching things to "the old guy."
After watching the film, I was pleasantly surprised and could not stop raving about the film (which is why I decided to write a blog post about it).
What Was The Movie About?
This was a film about a 70 year old widower who is tired of the day-to-day humdrum of his life and is looking for a new experience that will keep him productive and allow him to "get out" more. Enter Anne Hathaway, who plays a very successful twenty-something who has founded a rapidly growing start-up company. She is young. She is fresh. She is always on her toes and works very, very hard. She unknowingly agrees to launch a new program which takes on elderly interns who can contribute to various departments in the start-up. This movie is all about the sequence of events that take place during Robert De Niro's character's internship working with Anne Hathaway's character.
What Did I Love About It?
Man, I cannot stop singing the praises of this movie. I will list a few things that I enjoyed about watching this film:
The 1 Thing I Could Have Done Without...
There was one rather inappropriate scene with Robert De Niro's character receiving a massage from another character. While both parties were fully clothed, this was the only scene that I did not care for at all. I felt as if it was a cheap attempt at making De Niro's older character seem "relevant" and I could have done without that.
Honestly, that was the only aspect that I didn't like...which is why I had to write about it. This is also the only aspect of the movie that I want to inform any parents of! I would avoid bringing your children to see this movie unless they are over 13. I guess that is why it is rated PG-13!
Looks like Hollywood may have actually rated this movie right for a change!
My Final Recommendations
All in all, I have recommended this movie many times to friends and family. I am also going to recommend this movie to anyone reading this who is over the age of 13. I encourage you to take time after the movie and note the things you enjoyed because I am fully confident that you will enjoy it!
In fact, if you don't enjoy it - you can leave me a comment informing me just why you didn't like it! I promise I will read it :)
