An epic product placement with a corny movie breaking out now and then. What's worse, it's not (from what I read) even a paid product placement, but true love for the ghastly corporate "culture" of Google. How much better this film would have been if they'd called it "Snoogle" and had the courage to satirize such a place instead of making the winning of an entry level job there the summit of human achievement. Where's Preston Sturges when you need him? Still dead I'm afraid.

Great for anyone who can relate or knows someone who can relate to not being in the know of all the newest technology.

This is a sweet and lovely movie. A couple of scenes suffer a bit from over-the-top attempts at humour, typical-American style, but these aren't what stayed with me after I'd watched it. Definitely a feel-good flick - even for people who hate Owen Wilson (what is it about that poor dude that fires people's ire, anyway?!). Both he and Vince Vaughn play utterly likeable characters. What's to like? That they are gentle, generous, sincere guys who adapt and accept. I wish everyone in the world were like these two. I love it. Still makes me smile to think about it. Highly recommend (just sigh gently to yourself during the over-the-top moments, and forgive the film for not being flawless :o).

I expected far less. What I saw was fun and enjoyable.

One funny Quidditch scene (is that how you spell it?), and... that's it. Two guys trying too hard to be funny and a plot that is cliched and predictable.

Much better than the Rotten Tomatoes ratings would suggest. Apart from a weak party night at the bar scene that drags on too long, the movie has many very funny lines and visuals. Better than a lot of the modern gross out comedy that seems to focus unduly on bodily functions and sex.

Not a bad movie for what this. Got some good laughs out of it. A very interesting look into working at Google, for that alone this movie is worth the watch.

This comic team works. It's good and worth a watch be. Warned the uncut version has lots of nudity

A few laughs, but for the most part a waste of time. I watched the unedited version and to my dismay was subjected to an extended scene in a strip club with plenty of topless women and lap dancing. This evening out is described by one character as the most fun he's ever had. How very sad. Skip it.

Really funny and entertaining. So much better than I thought it would be. These guys are pretty good.
