The Internship Special Features:
I had pretty high hopes for the movie just because of the promise of the bromance between Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn that started back in 2005 in Wedding Crashers. I was not disappointed at all in this fun and entertaining movie. Vaughn and Wilson have such a great chemistry and they play well off each other. While there weren’t many truly “laugh out loud” moments, there were many really funny ones that kept a smile on my face.
Beyond the comedy though the film itself is relevant and had a few upbeat, feel-good messages here and there that I appreciated.
Parents there was one scene in the unrated edition with sexual content so avoid watching this with your children or be prepared to face an awkward few minutes.
Each generation has many unique characteristics and traits that separate its members from those before and after. As you can see from Billy and Nick’s experience in the business world in The Internship, these differences between generations can cause difficulties. For years, sociologists have been studying the differences between Generation X and Millennials or Generation Y. A large portion of the differences between these two generations stems from the rapid development of technology. Take a look below at some of the characteristics of these generations.
Sharing is Caring
Billy may not know a lot about Instagram and some of the other largest social media apps being used by Millennials and Generation X, but these platforms have become a huge part of young adults’ lives. In fact, Millennials are so addicted to social media that they often rely on Twitter and Facebook to create their identity. Millennials share everything from what they are eating and wearing to whom they are dating. Sometimes they almost seem to believe something isn’t real until it has been shared with the world online.
Show Me the Money
Both Generation X and Y are determined to reach their monetary goals. Sometimes they daydream of being able to accumulate this money without working a forty-hour (or more) workweek. More often it means that they will be more willing to work hard to prove they are ready for another raise. This is why young people like Stuart, Neha, and Graham strive for internships with great companies like Google.
What’s That- Over There?!
Although growing up with the Internet has certainly given an advantage to the up and coming businessmen and women of Generation Y, there are also some negative effects that are apparent. For instance, Millennials have mastered the art of multi-tasking. However, because their mind is constantly being pulled in multiple directions, Millennials have a tendency to have a rather short attention span.
We Just Wanna Have Fun!
While it’s true that Millennials and Generation X-ers will be very hard working in the office, there is one trick to providing them with a satisfying work environment. Members of both generations strongly desire to have fun while at the office. This means that they want to take breaks to have fun, unique adventures. This fun at the office, similar to the quidditch and bike rides seen on the Google campus, improves the creative process of young employees.
At a very young age, Millennials were able to play with technology and have held technology at the center of their lives ever since. They love being able to test out new equipment and new apps. With the developments in cell phones and the Internet, Millennials have discovered they have the power at their fingertips with their cell phones in their hands. For that reason, it is sometimes hard to get people like Wilson to put their phones away, especially at work.
