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.

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.

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.

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.

The Interview in a nutshell: Half-baked and ultimately forgettable.

The Interview is gross and racist, and most of the time, it's not even funny.

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]

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.

The Interview, conversely, is little more than a sloppy air kiss blown lazily under the banner of free speech.

The suffocating level of redundancy on display kneecaps any legitimate chance the film had at embracing social satire.

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.

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.
