I liked it for what it is.

There has never been as silly and inconsequential a film that prompted as huge a political fuss as this.

Whether it lives up to its reputation as a banner for the rights of "artists" to fictionally assassinate a living head of state might be debatable. Whether it is truly funny, outrageous or touching is obvious: It is not.

But for those who want to see The Interview because their curiosity has been piqued, many will exit realizing that all the hubbub was much ado about nothing.

There's a good point to be made about how journalists can be co-opted by access to the powerful people they're supposed to be holding accountable. Unfortunately, Rogen and Goldberg aren't the filmmakers to make this point.

Demonstrates an abject carelessness which is more offensive than any other wrongdoing of which The Interview has been accused.

...a slight improvement over Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's directorial debut, 2013's This Is the End...

Super sloppy and very, very silly, The Interview at least doesn't pull its punches.

Driven by the blustery, swear-happy, cadence-free performances that characterise most Seth Rogen comedies, this reasonably funny lark at least has the distinction of mixing in some light political satire with the usual knockabout fare we've come to expect

It's a workable premise, and the film delivers some scattered laughs in those moments when it can tear itself away from typically puerile and repetitive gags.

I didn't laugh at all that blood and gore, but I did laugh at some of the running jokes about junk news shows and celebrity interviews. That stuff is close to the truth.

The Interview is all bromance and no bite, all dick jokes and no penetrating satire. Sorry Seth and Evan; Trey and Matt did it.
February 20, 2015
The final third of the film, which is directed by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, degenerates into a humourless and violent Rambo pastiche.
February 19, 2015
More tasteless farce than blistering satire, The Interview is a relatively innocuous comedy...
February 18, 2015
The Interview at its best is just intermittently amusing, with an obsession about the sanctity of bottoms. These boys need to stop clenching.
February 18, 2015
For every joke that works, there are five that don't.
February 17, 2015
Strangely misconceived, tasteless and only very intermittently funny.
February 12, 2015
While Rogen and Goldberg's stance is clearly anti-North Korean government, the duo don't exactly wave the American flag high either, with the film throwing some hits the way of its own country.
February 11, 2015
If we had all met our fate over The Interview, war really would be indefensibly senseless.

Some wild ideas and crazy situations by themselves don't make a 106 minute comedy. Please try harder
