The soundtrack is very nice in “The Intern” (2015). Happy and comforting. That’s also kind of the role that Robert De Niro plays as a senior citizen intern at an e-commerce startup founded by Anne Hathaway. The story is predictable: geezer who knows nothing about tech transforms into wise elder in eyes of younger co-workers and everyone learns a little something about themselves. Awww. Like the film’s marketing slogan: “Experience never gets old.” Awww. Thankfully, the filmmakers avoid total cliche immersion and spare us from the typical over-the-top ending involving corporate back-stabbing, contrived boardroom speeches and/or impossible last-minute deadlines. Awww.
