The Interview Reviews

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.

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

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.

I couldn't believe what I was going to watch when I had first seen the trailer, and those lofty expectations were met

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.

Hysterical, silly, big dumb fun that makes for a great night out with your friends.

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.

[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.

I liked it for what it is.

...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

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.
February 27, 2015
The Interview is all bromance and no bite, all dick jokes and no penetrating satire. Sorry Seth and Evan; Trey and Matt did it.

More tasteless farce than blistering satire, The Interview is a relatively innocuous comedy...
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 9, 2015
A ridiculous, juvenile, funny-ish dick-and-fart comedy that should be taken seriously by absolutely no one.
February 9, 2015
From start to finish, The Interview is simply a joy to watch.
February 8, 2015
I laughed more than I expected, spurred on by the fact that in doing so I was exercising a basic democratic right.
