DECIDING WHETHER you like Anne Hathaway is much the same as making a journey to Sharjah between the hours of 4pm and 10pm - troublesome and fraught with frustration. For many years she was simply annoying. Then Rachel Getting Married came along. Then I got round to seeing the Batman film she was in. Finally I saw a YouTube video of her lip-syncing to Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus and she burrowed her way into my heart. Sheer persistence and genuine talent has won out. I think she's great. There I said it. Team her up with legend Robert De Niro and you should get something watchable.
And that's about all we can hope for from The Intern - two hours of basic entertainment. It's not going to push any envelopes, but it looks sweet.
At the age of 70 De Niro embarks on a new career and has to start at the bottom. He becomes an intern for fashion company owner Anne Hathaway. They quickly become best friends, bridging the inter-generational gap with a shared appreciation of old-fashioned values.
IMDb gives it 7.4 and Rotten Tomatoes gives it 60%
