If you’ve seen the trailer you’d expect a cute comedy about a retired man (Robert De Niro) who becomes the intern for the overloaded exec of an online fashion site (Anne Hathaway). It does start in that direction and there are some mildly charming moments. About half way thru, it careens resolutely toward chick flick territory, as the focus moves from the office to the challenges of her marriage. Even with writer/director Nancy Meyer’s upbeat style, the film takes a somber tone and serious pace that drags it down. De Niro has never been blander and Hathaway is OK, while the supporting characters lack any spice. Meyers’ messages about women in the workplace and dull determination to focus on the marriage takes a potentially amusing movie into tedious trite territory.
