Plot Outline:

A celebrity talk show host, along with his hit producer, are ready to move on to more "hard-hitting" interviews when they score the chance of a lifetime when they are picked to interview the reclusive North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un. But just before they leave, the CIA approaches them in order to carry out an assassination - the two accept, finding themselves the least-qualified hitmen ever to take a job. -- Chris Kavan

After 127 Hours one would wonder what happened to James Franco. Surprisingly he co produces this and tries to be funny. Writing was just iffy and the whole premise just not that funny. There were moments but over all a pretty average comedy which deals with acceptance, friendship, domination and mistrust. So many unrealistic scenes and mostly disappointing nonsensical moments.

The 'Phantom Menace' of comedies. It's decent enough but the media coverage and the fact this actually caused an international incident should suggest that the film is better than what it is. It's not. Seth Rogen and James Franco are fine together and the supporting cast is funny. The best moments are when it milks the premise for what its worth. Such bits include a montage of Franco bonding with Kim Jong Un who's actually made into a funny character who remains scary in retrospect.

Watched it off of Google Play. Wanted to know what all the hype was about. Has it funny moments, like any Seth Rogen comedy. I'd find it hard to believe Kim Jon Un wouldn't be laughing. There are clearly no hidden underlying meanings to this movie. Except for maybe people going hungry? But isn't that a known fact anyway?

Ein Geek

Nach monatelanger Kontroverse und der Aufführung von The Interview in nur wenigen Arthaus Kinos, bleibt die Feststellung: The Interview zeigt nichts Neues, sieht aber grossartig aus: In Widescreen wie ein Agentenfilm! Man erwartet nur noch, dass sich jetzt auch ein paar Aliens zeigen! Man durfte das in letzter Zeit immer öfter erleben, dass Komödien aussahen wie dicke Actionfilme - eine gute Entwicklung! Jetzt brauchts nur noch ausgereifte Charaktere und Schauspieler, die sie ohne ein Augenzwinkern verkörpern (denn wen nervt es nicht, dass postmoderne Gehabe, alles mit Abstand und Ironie zu betrachten?). Seth Rogen und James Franco schaffen diese Aufgabe - immerhin ein Drittel der Zeit. Später im Film erwartet uns eine aberwitzige und emotionale Szene zwischen Francos Charakter und im Jon...

Hooray for Freedom! And Poop Jokes!

Hey, remember that one time when a major studio was hacked and a bunch of information got out? Upcoming films were leaked, personal emails and data was leaked and then the group threatened to do something bad and the movie was pulled by all major theater chains and then Sony dropped all plans to release only to reconsider when a bunch of celebrities (and the President of the United States himself) essentially said "shame on you". Well, guess what? Now The Interview is widely available - some independent theaters got it, but most of the people who watched it (including me) saw it via VOD. So, what was all this fuss about - what got North Korea so riled up it brought a major company to its knees? Well, as it turns out, a bunch of dick and poop jokes are all it takes to get yoursel...

As silly as the reaction or is it?

Well first of this is a very silly movie its more like annoying humour than actually being funny.
its a dodgy concept. for amovie to assinate someone in power who is actually in real life in power. its understandable for say bin laden or hitler. but when your mocking the current lunatic on the planet you are kind of going to far . , im sure if north korea released a film like this as obama as the villian there would be some talk also. but the north korean leader might actually like some of this film as he thinks americans are stupid and this film makes them out to be really really stupid.
i dont think seth rogan is leading man material he just is never convincing and seems out of place.
this a movie of man children thats just not funny.and is immature word play parading as humour.

We're going the VOD route tomorrow - I'll post my response then - I'm not expecting Citizen Kane, but hopefully it offers a few laughs.

Solid opening in limited release ($2.8 million) plus a ton of VOD sales ($15 million and counting) - The Interview isn't going to win any awards but it may at least make back all the money it lost when this whole debacle started.

It looks like Sony has relented (somewhat) and is now opening The Interview in a handful of independent theaters on Christmas. A full listing can be found here:

It only took chastising from the President of the United States (and a few celebrities and a large chunk of the general public) to change Sony's mind. I see my home state of Nebraska doesn't have any theaters on the list (yet) - but if you live anywhere it's playing, would love to see your review!

Apparently some smaller theater chains were going to play Team America: World Police in place of The Interview, but Paramount wouldn't let them. This whole situation offends me and scares me at the same time. I hear that even the President himself is pist off.
