Consensus: Unfortunately overshadowed by controversy (and under-screened as a result), The Interview's screenplay offers middling laughs bolstered by its two likable leads.

What's wrong with The Interview is that it doesn't know how to be the singeing comedy it wants.

It's stupid. It's in bad taste. It impossible. I know all that. But Rogen's instinct to try anything for giggles and sticking it to dictatorial assholes is worth fighting for. Screw Kim if he can't take a joke.

Park is sharp, funny and oddly sweet as the dictator but, even with a toned-down assassination sequence, the movie is a throwaway, worthier of a few laughs than it is a full-on international furor.

Te best satire provokes and even outrages, and Rogen, Franco and Goldberg certainly succeed on that score.

It's certainly smutty-and infantile. Maybe half the jokes miss. But it is a truly savage work.

Amid the political and commercial hullaballoo about Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's The Interview, I found myself paraphrasing an old show-business adage: "International relations are easy. Comedy is hard."

The Interview is nothing more than a hodgepodge of random gags loosely strung together. The story concerns Dave Skylark (James Franco) a bumbling idiot that… More

This movie teeters on the line of funny and stupid. Franco's character can be really annoying, but I'd be lying if I said he didn't make me laugh… More
