Get me some coffee and kiss my a***
12 December 2016 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

"Intern" is from 2000 and stars a host of young actors, as well as Joan Rivers, Peggy Lipton, and featuring cameos by many people in the fashion world.

It's sort of "The Devil Wears Prada" or "Ugly Betty" on the cheap and exaggerated. The anorexic models, the near-hysteria at a fashion shoot, the gay stereotypes - it's all there and then some.

I'm a little hard of hearing but Dominique Swain, who has gone on to have a very nice career, was hard to understand even though I was wearing earphones, due to her muttering.

If you live or have lived in New York City, I think you will enjoy this - you certainly will know about offices like this and will have met some of the people.

There is an opening musical number that uses the phrase in the summary line. Actually it's kind of cute.

The plot concerns looking for the mole who is giving secrets to another magazine. The film mimics "All the President's Men" by having Peggy Lipton trolling through parking garages and tying a scarf on a pole as a signal, looking for her Deep Throat who gives her the most obscure clues you can imagine. Then he hears a car start and he's gone in a flash.

This is very over the top with the exception of Ben Pullen and Swain, who actually manage to play real people. Joan Rivers' coats are insane.

This had potential - there were some funny bits. But we've seen it done better.
