In Theaters This Weekend: Reviews of 'The Internship,' 'The Purge,' and More

If you're interested in a new career, consider interning at Google.

At least, that's what Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson attempt to do in their latest comedy, The Internship. The Wedding Crashers co-stars team up again in Shawn Levy's new flick as two old-fashioned salesmen who've lost their jobs selling watches in a era where technology, such as smart phones, have made timepieces somewhat obsolete. The pair try their luck with a new career and end up scoring internships at Google headquarters in Mountain View, Calif. The movie also stars Rose Bryne, Jessica Szohr and John Goodman.

Read what The Hollywood Reporter's film critics have to say about all the films opening this weekend and find out how they are expected to perform at the box office.
