Okay, I totally thought "Man, is De Niro taking any role he can get now, or what?" Despite Robert De Niro's involvement with Silver Lining's Playbook (which I LOVED, but many didn't), I was thinking, "Okay, he's getting older now, he's gonna start taking weird roles." Mind you, I am from the few who hid from Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers like the plague.
So I see this movie trailer, and go "Oh, jeez, he's trying to appeal to the youth in his old age, I bet this is going to be painful."
So I watch it, and either I'm a sheep, or this looks awesome. Down to earth De Niro is the best De Niro, and he shows that he still has got it, even if it's from a different age group than he used to be in.
Plus, him along side a funny-again and less-serious Anne Hathaway? We'll take it!
Check out the trailer here for the movie The Intern.
The movie will be out September 25.
