Trivia

Google allowed the film to shoot for five days at the Googleplex Headquarters, but most of film was shot at the Georgia Institute of Technology at Atlanta, where the film crew made the set look as accurate as the real one. See more »

Goofs

When Nick and Billy are trying to make their sale in the beginning of the movie they mention that Skylar (Bob's daughter) is an ace on the pommel horse. Bob also shows a picture of his daughter on the pommel horse. Pommel horse is not a women's gymnastics event at all. At any level. So while they girls may have played on it at practice it is highly unlikely that she would be known for that event. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Nick Campbell: What the shit is this? Why is this on the get psyched mix?
Billy McMahon: Because I gotta throw you a curve-ball every now and again, or you get bored, and the mix doesn't have its intended effect.
Nick Campbell: No, I want to get rev'd up, and this song's not doing it.
Billy McMahon: Oh, really? I defy you to crush this chorus and not get psyched.
Nick Campbell: Not gonna happen.
Billy McMahon: Don't ya think?
[cranks up the volume and Nick actually starts singing along]

This is "Film-placement", forget Product-placement
18 June 2013 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Saw a pre-screening with a friend this film last night. Very painful experience. There is "Product Placement" and a new-term I will coin which is "Film-placement", whereby a film plot is constructed around the need to show-off every aspect of a Product. Barely a laugh in sight at the cinema. Cannot believe Google signed this off – they have self-belief in spades! Things that did make a mark on me in this film: Google provides silly hats for interns (i.e. "Noogles", porting silly little hats complete with little propellers), coloured bicycles on campus, relaxation pods, online advertising, online analytics, GPS location services, oh and not forgetting free food (provided not taken home, and a barrel of laughs intended to be associated around this one). Oh, and some of its lecturers have to make do part-time as strippers (where did that one come from?). I have seen many mediocre films in my time but this is the first that I have been compelled to "review".
