Don’t worry there aren’t gonna be any “SPOILERS” in this review. Well other than Eminem is in the opening scene. Which I already mentioned before… I am going to talk more about this scene in my next post, so if you don’t want to read about the opening scene of The Interview with Eminem then just skip the next post. But it’s a good one and only deals with that one scene and will not ruin the movie, I promise.
Alright enough about the next post, back to this one.
I give The Interview a 4 stars out of 5 rating… or an 8 on a scale of 1 -10. But I have to admit that it would be more like a 3 star or a 7 on that scale of 1-10 if there had not been all the hoopla before seeing it.
The movie is funny, but not as funny as This Is The End, and nowhere near as funny as Pineapple Express. Yet it uses a lot of the same techniques from both, James Franco’s character comes up with crazy ideas, and Seth Rogan’s character says, “What? No. We can’t do that, that’s crazy.” It never gets old. Well not too old. Though I am getting suspicious that Seth is writing movies just for him and James to make out in (sorry… but that’s not really a spoiler in a movie with those two anymore).
But it is funny… and as I said, due to all that went on during the release of this movie, it’s only funnier to watch.
That’s right, the best part is watching the movie knowing how upset it made Kim Jong Un, I mean Sony was hacked in an attempt to stop this movie from being seen, lmao, how “wacky” does that make Kim look even before the movie is watched? Which, let’s be honest here, Kim doesn’t care if Seth and James make a movie about him, he doesn’t care if everyone in America goes to the theater and sees it. He just don’t want it finding its way to North Korea. He doesn’t want anyone there to see it and realize how foolish he looks to the rest of the world. And that’s bound to happen… the DVD will come out, and activist will send that thing over the border in parachutes… and North Koreans will see Kim looking foolish in the works of Seth and James.
And that is where the movie is really funny. As you watch the Kim Jong Un in the film you can’t help but laugh, knowing it bothers the real Kim so much.
And good. LOL!
You also find yourself saying, “Really? All of that over this?”
So thank you GOP and Kim Jong Un! You actually helped make the movie much funnier than it actually is. And also cheaper. I would have paid a lot more to see it if I had gone to the theater. My whole family watched it for $5.
The movie’s funny, and it’s only $5… so get it, watch it, laugh at Lil Kim Jong Un some more, he’s funny!
SPOILER ALERT!!! The next post does contain some spoilers from “The Interview”. READ AT YOU OWN RISK!
