The Interview Reviews
February 12, 2021
One feels ashamed for the performers and crewmembers involved, and one feels embarrassed to have watched the film.

Once the scenery changes from Hollywood to the hermit kingdom, however, the laughs become as rare as Angelina Jolie compliments in leaked Sony e-mails.

Editing shortcomings and storyline inattentiveness betray a production plagued by studio interference.

A silly, enjoyable enough movie that's destined to be remembered for things that have nothing to do with what's on screen.

At its core, The Interview has a remarkably insightful thesis about human nature and politics.

Rogan and company didn't do anything but set out to make a funny movie, and they were reasonably successful. The filmmakers were just artists doing their job, until they got swept up in something bigger. Maybe that's how art is supposed to work.

These aren't just two stoner dudes who bumbled their way into a real world crisis like in the movie, these are two very smart comedians who turned a seemingly innocuous comedy into a real life act of defiance.

Headlines strained to politicize the film. But it's merely a crass, caustic comedy whose point of view is to not let cultural coverage brainwash the best out of us - whether it involves human rights or celebrity hairpieces.

Mediocre comedy and the lamest act of war ever.

The Interview may have benefited in investing more energy in compiling a stronger supporting cast -- this would have at least allowed the humour to potentially branch out and find new gags that unfortunately weren't present.

Franco and Rogen are amiable enough in the lead roles, with good chemistry that has developed from previous collaborations.

The Interview is a forgettable comedy with an unforgettable advertising campaign, yet should still be seen for the amount of risks the filmmakers took to get it made at all.

The Interview may have put studios off making movies about North Korea, but hopefully it will be an inspiration to comedy writers to make the weirdest, most high-concept movies imaginable.
May 22, 2018
It's ground zero for our current culture wars - not because it's a good movie, but because it is bad in an unexpectedly revealing way.

I would have willingly taken several strips of ricin myself to be spared a single extra minute of the terrible, gurning, prancing, toweringly irritating piece of idiot ham that is Franco.
December 2, 2017
I couldn't believe what I was going to watch when I had first seen the trailer, and those lofty expectations were met

The Interview in a nutshell: Half-baked and ultimately forgettable.
August 11, 2017
Its important to note that the movie is not so much a political satire as much as it is the typical Rogen-Franco-pot-filled-film we've come to expect.
June 2, 2017
The Interview is gross and racist, and most of the time, it's not even funny.
