‘Wedding Crashers’ Stars Vaughn & Wilson Reunite for ‘Interns’

If you hold a lot of warm dorm room viewing memories regarding 2005’s Wedding Crashers, you’re in luck: Vulture reports that Crashers stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson will reunite for Interns, a Twentieth Century Fox production. They’ll play "forty-ish company guys who both get laid off in a downsizing," Vulture writes. "Convinced they’ve gone about managing their careers entirely wrong, they resolve to become interns at a Google-like dotcom and start anew. Suddenly, the two old chums are competing against wily, fresh-faced 22 year olds for advancement." It’s going to be an tour through the middle-aged male psyche, one that pulls no emotional punches at looking how hard it is to grow up when your future has been tossed to the side. Either that, or Vaughn is going to get too drunk at a company party and sleep with his boss, played by an immensely aggressive Jennifer Coolidge. It’s going to rule.

Mainstream dude humor is slightly less gauche these days following a mid-millennium peak of testosterone dominatrixes like Dane Cook and Tucker Max, enough to venture that you can’t really make a movie that’s entirely about confirming most of the worst male stereotypes. As entertaining as Wedding Crashers was, it’s still a movie about how it’s okay to lie your way into sleeping with a lot of women — but hey, it’s alright if everyone’s drunk! So yes, it would be nice if Vaughn and Wilson update their worldview for a comedy landscape that’s far more fragmented and open to less blatantly chauvinist humor. On the other hand, montages of half-naked women hitting the bed are guaranteed to boost a movie’s box office take by $50 million per scene, so we’ll see.
