.Ever heard of an organisation asking for interns who are 65 plus? This movie tackles this out of the way plot with reasonably amusing results. Robert Deniro is a retired 70 year old widower who manages to keep busy in various activities after the death of his wife till he sees an ad asking for interns who are senior citizens. He applies,gets selected and is attached to assist young upwardly mobile fast talking fast walking hyperactive Anne Hathaway who runs a clothing line company. After the proverbial period of adjustment, Deniro settles down not only as her chauffeur and assistant but also as a father figure cum mentor of sorts as he is slowly sucked into her private life. With his experience and attitude he soon becomes a sort of Mr Fixit not only at work but also at Anne's home.He becomes Mr Congeniality at the workplace. Nothing earth shattering about the plot but the film progresses leisurely from scene to scene which can hardly boast of any worthwhile comedy or drama but it is the simplicity of the scenes which keep you hooked.The movie does not have much depth but it is high on charm.
Director Nancy Meyers just about manages to do the story telling in an interesting manner. With talented actors like Robert Deniro and Anne Hathaway one should have expected a better film. Or maybe a better plot was required. Robert.Deniro plays the cool,calm and calculating character with aplomb keeping it low all the time. He does have many hints for senior citizens who work with youngsters of age 20 plus.With grey hair he stands out in his formal suit and tie among the twenty plus aged jean and tee shirted colleagues For Anne Hathaway this role must have amused her as she picks up the mannerisms of Meryl Streep in "The devil wore Prada" where she herself played the harassed intern. She matches the maturity of Deniro with typical charm and elegance displaying her vulnerability also.
