    As much as we're hoping that "The Internship" will be a guilty comedy pleasure this summer, the news that it's coming with a PG-13 rating is a bit of bummer.

Starting off as a temp who quickly became known as the Fire Guy, he improbably landed a corporate job at the head office of Dunder-Mufflin where he quickly sent a good chunk of his paycheck up his nose.
