What’s it about?
Cheesy TV host Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer (Seth Rogen) are coerced by the CIA to kill Kim Jong-Un during an interview.
What did we think?
Elizabeth Best says: If you ban it, they will come. In terms of finding a following, the Sony hack was probably the best thing to happen to this film. The Interview is dumb. It’s irreverent. It has Franco mugging his ass off like… well, like Franco. But it still manages to squeeze more than a giggle or two from an audience probably too ashamed to admit it. So take that, North Korea.

This film was possibly the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen. Explosions and tits and gratuitous violence and jokes about bottoms. Teenage boys will love to quote it, but somehow it’s JUST self-aware enough that I laughed in spite of myself. I’m not sure why.
