Product Description

Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapaport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show ‘Skylark Tonight.’ When they discover that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the most unlikely candidates, to “take out” Kim Jong-un.

“The Interview” is an extremely ridiculous movie, but if you’re a fan of either Seth Rogen or James Franco, you probably knew that going in. It’s a raunchy, foul-mouthed comedy with an unstoppable energy that requires the audience to be on board or off. And people that enjoy this new brand of hilarity - myself included - will have a lot of fun with it. It’s just a matter of accepting and reveling in the absurdity.

The plot itself is absolutely ludicrous (but in all the best ways), centered around a flamboyant talk show host and his loyal producer who are granted an exclusive interview with Kim Jong-un. But, there’s a catch. The CIA wants them to “take him out”. Not for drinks, not to dinner, and certainly not to party. So, these two have no choice but to attempt to assassinate the leader of North Korea. Yeah, it gets a bit crazy.

The humor is obviously akin to the kind-of stuff in “This is the End” and “Neighbors”, so if you weren’t a fan, you’re probably not going to like this. And as it goes on, it becomes increasingly silly and preposterous. But that’s precisely why I got such a kick out of it. It’s refreshing to see a movie that isn’t afraid to ‘go there’ and even be willing to step on another country’s toes to do so. But don’t get me wrong, this isn’t an offensive movie. For anyone who found this even remotely disrespectful - especially considering the ridiculous lengths this movie goes - doesn’t understand the satire. This isn’t a modern comedic masterpiece, but it’s throughly entertaining and comes highly recommended. Rogen and Franco are pitch-perfect.

While hiking in North Korea, I stopped at my favorite watering hole, "Kimchi and Chow" (don't eat the Shepherd's Pie) and sure enough they had playing on loop, "The Interview." My two favorite bros where there, Kim, and Dennis. We did some shooters, toasted life, and kicked back and enjoyed the film.

I think everyone knows the basic plot. The opening singing would of had been funny, but reminded too much of real songs done in Germany as performed in "The Book Thief." I went into the film wanting to write a negative review so I could tongue-in-cheek praise Kim Jung-Un for trying to save us from another James Franco film. However the first interview with Eminem had me in stitches.

It only takes 35 minutes for our guys to get to North Korea. Aaron Rapaport (Seth Rogen) wants to go there because there are "a lot of Asian girls there." Dave Skylark (James Franco) who does the interview, is not a serious journalist, but is a favorite of Kim.

There are lots of pop culture and movie references. LOTR is prevalent. There was a line from "Hitchhiker's Guide..." and of course where would the world be without the deep songs of Katy Perry. The film also has a diverse sound track and swagger music. I couldn't help but notice the use of Isaac Hayes' cover, "Walk on By."

The beginning of the film was sharp and was good up until the actual interview when the production turned into slap stick. I understand they rewrote and redid the ending which may have caused this. Hopefully the DVD will have an alternative ending.

Guide: Plenty of F-bombs. Brief sex scene. Brief nudity.

A late night talk show host discovers that Kim is a fan. It is arranged that he will go interview The Leader. The CIA wants the interviewer to 'take him out'.

They go and at first it appears that things are actually good, they have a bro-mance. Then things go horribly wrong. Entertaining. Funny. Swearing, a little bare skin.

This was the movie North Korea got all upset about just prior to the film's release, in 2014. The "hermit" dictatorship caused an actual international incident/stand-off, between itself and the US, by threatening "a 9/11-style of attack on any theater which showed" the flick.

This low grade highly-vulgar rated "R" movie, however, was supposed to be a comedy. Yet, it had more to do with grossing-out and irritating the audience than with being funny.

Few laughs. Some partial nudity. Poor acting. Lousy plot. Faulty directing (for example, repeatedly, the movie suffered from a timing problem.) With all the things clearly wrong with it, I'm not sure why Sony made this film.

For example, one of the main characters (James Franco) was inconsistent and too stupid to be believable or even likable. For the politically-minded, his role reflected a kind of left-wing spin on things. (Not my 'cup of tea'.)

SPOILER ALERT: Among other things, this show revealed the obvious: that North Korea's leader was not all he was hacked up to be, was vulnerable and could be overthrown. Moreover, the film concluded that North Korea would be better off without the "Dear Leader". In this regard plus about some serious subjects, the movie was right, but it was not comedy material and I suspected most people would already have agreed with those positions prior to seeing the film.

So, the actual/real-life idiotic North Korean leader should have just let this flick die a quiet death, in the theaters, rather than draw massive attention to it. Given all the hype, I was expecting something really earth-shattering and worth seeing.

Obviously, however, this was not it - and, so, that, too, didn't speak well of the dictator.
