The Internship

The Internship

Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn reunite this week for their new comedy The Internship - a movie that sees them work with director Shawn Levy.

So to celebrate the release of the film we look at the great comedy duos that have been enjoying big screen success in recent years.

- Owen Wilson & Vince Vaughn

Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn teamed up for the first time back in 2005 for Wedding Crashers.

The movie was a big box office hit and showed that Wilson and Vaughn were a fantastic comedy pairing.

Wedding Crashers was a great bromance between the two while both of them were on form as they brought a very funny and witty script to life.

We have had to wait eight years to see them back on the big screen together... and that film is The Internship.

The movie follows two salesman who lose their jobs thanks to the digital age. So they try to land a coveted internship at Google; but they have young and tech savvy applicants to contend with.

The Internship

- Simon Pegg & Nick Frost

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost worked together for the first time in TV series Spaced in 1999; since then they have been delighting audiences.

It wasn't long before they made the move onto the big screen with Shaun of the Dead as they found a director - Edgar Wright - who really understood how to write and direct their relationship.

Shaun of the Dead was a hit on both side of the Atlantic; it is now widely regarded as one of the best British movies of all time.

Hot Fuzz and Paul also saw the duo at their comic best and also enjoyed critical and box office success.

This summer Pegg and Frost are back as they reunite with Wright for new comedy The World's End.

- James Franco & Seth Rogen

It was back in 1000 when Seth Rogen and James Franco worked together for the first time on series Freaks and Geeks. The show may have only lasted one season but it kicked off a long standing partnership between the pair.

James Franco doe appear as himself in Knocked Up but it was Pineapple Express when the pair really teamed up again.

The movie was released back in 2008 and follows a process server and a marijuana dealer who go on the run from a hitman and a corrupt cop.

The pair of them reunited last week for their new comedy This Is The End; as well as being on the cast list the movie marked the feature film directorial debut for Rogen.

- Owen Wilson & Ben Stiller

Ben Stiller has revealed that the moment that he saw actor Owen Wilson in Bottle Rocket he knew that he wanted to work with him.

In 1996 Stiller cast Wilson in The Cable Guy and since then they have become one of the best comedy partnerships; they have starred in ten movies together.

Starsky and Hutch, Night at the Museum, Night at the Museum 2, Meet The Parents, Meet the Fockers, Little Fockers, The Royal Tenenbaums, Zoolander and Permanent Midnight have all followed.

The Night at the Museum movies and The Meet The Parents series have provided the duo with some of their biggest box office successes.

But it is Zoolander that is perhaps the biggest cult hit of them all - there is still hope that a sequel will be made.


- Will Ferrell & John C. Reilly

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly have enjoyed huge success throughout their careers and are two of the biggest names in comedy cinema.

They have made three movies together and their first came back in 2006 with Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby.

The movie saw the two of them play NASCAR drivers in the Adam McKay directed film. Talladega Nights was a critical and box office success that kicked off a partnership between the trio.

Ferrell & Reilly would reunite with director McKay two years later with Step Brothers. They would both also appear in Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie.
