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.

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.

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.
April 25, 2017
The enormous expectation created by a stupid political controversy only generated a disappointing feeling in front of a comedy without depth. [Full review in Spanish]

Hysterical, silly, big dumb fun that makes for a great night out with your friends.
September 26, 2016
Even the film's most ardent champions would likely concede that The Interview is a spectacularly weird film to end up at the center of a free speech brouhaha.
June 7, 2016
It's funny and strange, with an admirably gonzo sensibility, and it approaches the job of mocking Kim with the appropriate degree of joy-buzzer delight.
April 14, 2016
[Franco's] free-spirited screen presence gives the film the kind of anarchic momentum it requires, mirroring its totally-serious-but-not-at-all-serious bent.
December 21, 2015
The Interview, conversely, is little more than a sloppy air kiss blown lazily under the banner of free speech.
August 20, 2015
The suffocating level of redundancy on display kneecaps any legitimate chance the film had at embracing social satire.
