I heard some good things about the movie The Intern (2015) starring Robert Di Nero.
But when I tried to read the Wikipedia entry, I couldn’t understand part of it. Here is the sentence that just doesn’t make any sense to me:
“One day Ben notices Jules’ chauffeur drinking outside his parked vehicle and the driver to go home early, driving Jules home, a role he retains when the chauffeur is no where to be found the next day.”
I’m hoping this is some kind of error and not due to my getting old and losing my mind.
Can anyone tell me if this is some kind of error and if so, what did the author mean to say?
Also, I’d also appreciate hearing from anyone who has seen this flim. Specifically, is it worth my spending the money to go see this in a theater?
If you insert the word ‘tells’ in between ‘and’ and ‘the’, it suddenly makes sense.
“One day Ben notices Jules’ chauffeur drinking outside his parked vehicle and **tells **the driver to go home early, driving Jules home, a role he retains when the chauffeur is no where to be found the next day.”
Horrible, clunky English, but clear enough. He takes over as chauffeur temporarily, and then for good. At least, that’s what it seems to be saying. I haven’t actually seen the movie.
I saw this film and thought it was one of the worst movies I’ve seen in a very long time.
I really like Robert De Niro and he made parts of this thing enjoyable. But despite the fact that this film preaches about the evils of sexism, I thought it was one of the most sexist films I ever saw. The problem was not only in the way it ended but the fact that the entire film led up to this stupid ending that was a fantasy being preached to a segment of the population that … well … I can’t even bring myself to go on. I just want to warn people that it’s just my opinion, but this thing was just terrible.
