Middle-aged watch salesmen Billy and Nick (Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson) lose their jobs and take a chance applying for internships at Google even though they don’t know the first thing about coding. A comedy that may look like mere paid advertising for Google. But on the other hand, the intrigues at the company’s famed campus are straight out of any college movie and the story is overlong (albeit likable) and short on laughs. So, is this positive advertising for them? Maybe Google needs a new motto – “Don’t be bland”.
