The Intern movie quotes follows the story of one senior citizen who takes an internship with a young, growing company led by an inexperienced founder. The comedy was written and directed by Nancy Meyers and opened in theaters on September 25, 2015.

In The Intern, Ben Whittaker (Robert De Niro) is having troubles filling his days now that he's retired so he applies for a senior internship program at an up and coming e-commerce fashion company. Reporting to company founder Jules Oston (Anne Hathaway), both find some humor in having a 70-year-old interning for a 30-something CEO. But despite the age gap, which also exists with the other employees (including Adam DeVine, Zack Pearlman and Andrew Rannells), Ben seems to be fitting in quite well.

So when Jules is told that she is being replaced by a seasoned CEO who will run the company she started, she leans on Ben for support. Before long, they've developed a working relationship that will change both of their lives for a long time to come.

The Intern opens alongside other great films such as Hotel Transylvania 2, Everest, Black Mass, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials.
