"The best satire provokes and even outrages, and Rogen, Franco and Goldberg certainly succeed on that score."--Toronto Star
"Its lesson is that American pop culture is inescapable, our great achievement and most popular export, the weapon we wield abroad and the glue trap we struggle with at home."--New York Times
"Imagine 'Harold and Kumar Go to North Korea,' or 'Bill and Ted's Excellent North Korean Adventure' or even 'The Road to Pyongyang' starring Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. You get the idea."--San Francisco Chronicle

I did not expect to like this movie but it was surprisingly well written and acted. Hilarious and an excellent sound track. I count have done without some of the gore though.

Entertaining but controversial, THE INTERVIEW consists of the same silly behaviour we've come to expect from Seth Rogen and James Franco. It's not harsh or eye-opening just because it hit a nerve in North Korea and thus got way more publicity than it deserved. It's the same old, same old, like NEIGHBORS and KNOCKED UP and that kind of thing. Ignore the political brouhaha and THE INTERVIEW is a popcorn flick about dopey unsubstantial antics of an idiot newscaster and his producer. It's even -- gasp! -- somewhat funny at times. So, ignore the fervor, and if you like Rogen or his brand of comedy, you'll probably enjoy it.

Finally sat down to watch it and it was actually very good. I thought it might just be a stupid comedy, but it was a good comedy. Made me laugh pretty well.

A few funny moment but in general a waste of time. They really did not put a lot into this movie and it shows....

Silly fun kind of comedy. Guilty moronic pleasure.
I can understand why His Majesty was offended, considering his fate in this movie.

Rather vulgar and dumb. If North Korea had not made a big fuss about the movie, I would not have watched it.

Sook: How many times can the U.S. make the same mistake?
Rapaport: As many times as it takes!

Kim: You know what's more destructive than a nuclear bomb?... Words.

Skylark:
-This was a revolution ignited with nothing more than a camera and some questions. Questions that led a man, once revered as a god among mortals, to cry and shit his pants.
-Haters gonna hate, and ain'ters gonna ain't!
- Kim must die, it's the American way.
-This is 2014, women are smart now!
