SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson were first featured together in the 2005 comedy hit "Wedding Crashers."

"Vince and I have known each other now for a long time, and I've always been a fan of the stuff that he's done. But I think what made it exciting for me to work on this movie and what's been nice seeing the way people have responded and how much they've enjoyed the movie is that beyond it being funny is that it has heart," Wilson said.

Now Wilson and Vaughn are playing former salesmen that are trying to reinvent their lives through an internship at Google in the new movie "The Internship."

"It's about that we have these kind of generational differences, but really are we that different? Are the things that sort of keep us united that we want the same things, which is to feel a part of something and to feel that you're valuable and that you have something to contribute," Wilson said.

Even though the two stars are very comfortable with comedy, they are still technically challenged.

"I remember there was sometimes we'd have to say certain technical things in the movie, and it was like this guy [Wilson] was cheating in math class. He had a whole kind of cheat sheet," Vaughn said.

"It might as well have been Mandarin. I had no idea what I was saying," Wilson added.

"The heart and the fun of the movie is really in life, whether it's a relationship which Owen has with Rose Byrne in the movie or your career, when things don't go well, finding that strength to pick yourself up and kind of be humble enough to start at the beginning again. There's something very winning about that," Vaughn said.

"The Internship" is rated PG-13. It hits theaters this Friday.
