Rated PG-13 · 119 minutes · 2013

When I heard that Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson would be reuniting for a film after their blessed Wedding Crashers, I got justifiably excited. I like Vaughn in profane mode, and he made Wilson tolerable in their first go-round. However, what we get here is terrible, a two-hour commercial for Google that dumbs the duo down and sanitizes them. They play a couple of salesmen who lose their gigs when wristwatches become obsolete. For reasons that are never really explained, the Vaughn character homes in on Google during his job search and persuades 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.
