The CIA recruits a talk-show host (James Franco) and his producer (Seth Rogen) to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in this comedy from writer/director duo Rogen and Evan Goldberg (This Is the End). Franco plays Dave Skylark, a vapid talk-show host known for chasing celebrity gossip, while Rogen is his producer Aaron Rapaport, who's desperate to do more serious journalism. When Dave discovers that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un (played here by Randall Park) is a big fan of his show, the pair decide to arrange an interview with him in order to boost their credibility. And the CIA, in turn, decide to use these two and the access they'll have to assassinate Kim. Aaron is all for it, but Dave is an easily swayed idiot who quickly falls under Kim's spell, and begins to see the dictator as a wounded man-child rather than someone worth killing.~Jeremy Wheeler

The Interview [Includes Digital Copy] [Blu-ray] 
I am glad I purchased this movie. I didn't want to be intimidated by anyone from letting me see it.
The story is pretty good, but I could have done without the foul language. It does gives us a clear picture on how quality network journalism shows are often trumped by low-ball, trash-talking TV programs which gossip and one-liners drive their ratings to skyscraper levels over their competition.
About ten percent of this movie consists of noisy party scenes where industry rivalries of boy meets girl, and first butterflies develop, which are more juvenile than those of mature adults. This doesn't add much to the plot. The actors, however, are good at their craft and the outside shots make the film worth seeing, even though it wasn't shot in North Korea, but in Western Canada.
Get this movie because you believe in freedom -- and because you enjoy a good laugh.
It was a true shame that The Interview never really got to see the light of day in movie theaters last year. Thankfully, at least it saw some form of release, allowing both fans of Rogen and Franco's brand of comedy along with those just curious to see what nearly started another world war to see it. The Blu-ray itself, even if you already own a digital version as I do, is still worth a buy. The picture quality and sound design is terrific, while the film itself is both hilarious and very rewatchable (I've already seen it four times). Even if you're not a huge fan of Rogen and Franco's past collaborations, The Interview is likely to earn at least a chuckle out of most who see it.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 5 out of 5 stars with 1 review
Haven’t watched it yet.
Owned for 7 months when reviewed.
Bought it because it was an great value and had point to use.
A really screwy movie - kind of what you'd expect from Seth Rogen. Really off the wall at some points in the film. Funny in spots, but kind of weird or awkward given the real-life drama of North Korea having nuclear weapons and threatening the US.
