NO PLACE LIKE GOOGLE?: The new comedy "The Internship" is a nearly two-hour showcase for Google's idealistic culture and for a product line that's becoming deeply ingrained in people's technology-dependent lives.

FEEL-GOOD FLICK: The movie, which hits theaters Friday, will likely be a hit among Google-loving geeks and fans of feel-good flicks, especially those with an affinity for the riffing and mirthful chemistry between stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson.

NOT A DOCUMENTARY: But the film may not create such warm and fuzzy feelings among Google critics who view the company as a self-interested bully that tramples over copyrights, intrudes into people's privacy and stifles competition by abusing its power as the Internet's main gateway.
