Review: The Interview
The art of honey potting, and honey dicking.
Aaron Rapaport (Seth Rogen) is a producer on a popular Entertainment Tonight type show staring the slightly dimwitted Dave Skylark. (James Franco) Upset that his peers aren't taking him quite as seriously due to the nature of his show, that is about to change when they find out North Korean leader Kim Jung Un (Randall Park) is actually a huge fan. They are set to conduct an interview with him, but before they go, the CIA intercepts them and wants them to take him out.
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past month, you know the drama surrounding this film. Luckily for us, the film was released and we can finally see what all the fuss was about. I admit, I never had the highest expectations for this film, despite being a huge fan of both Franco and Rogen. Most of the comments I saw from people around the web called it "terrible" and "a huge waste of time." I disagree on both parts. It's not the best comedy out there, but it still has some funny parts. Actually, a lot of it was hilarious. Stupid, but hilarious.
The film is pretty ballsy. When I first heard about it, I was shocked they didn't go the route of The Great Dictator and change Un's name. I like Franco and Rogen's style. They made an amusing comedy, and I'm glad Sony at least released it online and in some theaters and didn't bitch out completely like we all thought they would.
