The Interview (2014)
Dave Skylark and producer Aaron Rapoport run the celebrity tabloid show “Skylark Tonight.” When they land an interview with a surprise fan, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, they are recruited by the CIA to turn their trip to Pyongyang into an assassination mission.
A surprising number of well shot action scenes, I screamed at the TV multiple times, and, of course, tons of offensive jokes.
I did not go into The Interview expecting anything more than a Seth Rogan movie, and that’s exactly what I got. I don’t think it was as funny as This is the End, but I definitely enjoyed it. There were a few lulls that slowed the movie down and I’m getting a little tired of the weird relationship between Franco and Rogen that they like to put in each of their films, but not enough to alter my rating of the movie.
I had no problem with the changed ending, and thought that what they went with probably degraded Kim Jong-un more.
All in all, it was just what I expected, and I don’t have a problem with that. Boobs, ass, toilet humor. What more could you ask for?
