Google Vetoed Driverless Car Crash in “The Internship”

June 7th, 2013

I have absolutely no desire to see the newest Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson flick “The Internship,” which places the two comedians as interns at the Googleplex. However, this review in the Bits Blog offered one nugget:

Still, according to news reports, Google had some veto power: it jettisoned a scene in which one of its driverless cars crashed. (Instead, as the two stars stare at the empty driver’s seat, Mr. Wilson’s character says, “It’s scary because it’s new.”) Yet Google didn’t step in with other elements, like the Google employee who moonlights at a strip club.

So strip clubs good, autonomous-vehicle crashes, bad.
