James Franco and Seth Rogan do pretty well with their chemistry as always, and both of them deliver a solid performance. Some won't agree, but I think they are talented at what they do. The jokes were simple, but you'll find yourself laughing so hard at the majority of them. You might be wondering why I gave it a three and a half stars. Well it's a well-made film, but this isn't for everyone. It all comes down to whether or not you like it. The subject matter here is offensive and controversial, so people might take it the wrong way. While the storyline was simple, it wasn't groundbreaking or anything. It wasn't meant to be anything original, but what made it even better was how they put a controversial subject matter into it, as well as adding well-written jokes. Even though most of the jokes and lines were hilarious to laugh at, there are times where some of them were stupid and forgettable. Fans of Seth Rogen and James Franco wouldn't mind it, but if you're one of the people who were upset about what Sony did few days ago and dying to see it, you'll somewhat enjoy it nonetheless. With that being said, it has room for improvement. Randall Park delivered a good performance as Kim Jong-un, and he was pretty funny whenever he shows up. I hope to see him in more movies. So, was this movie good? Yes. Was it worth the hype? Yes and no. Yes because this had a lot of potential to be a funny movie. When Sony cancelled this film for a few days, the public was sad and angry about what they did, and now people are starting to see it online and at a select theater. No because it's not a flawless film. It has few weak points that kept itself from being the best comedy of all time. Not Seth Rogen and James Franco's best comedy ever made, but it sure is a great film that's hilarious and entertaining from start to finish. The lead actors, as well as the supporting cast, were funny. The storyline was simple but average at best with funny jokes and dialogues that are gross and vulgar, but still hilarious. Some will love, some will dislike it, but I'll tell you that it's worth seeing at least once. Give this film a chance, and you're in for a treat. If you're looking for something funnier than Adam Sandler's work, this is a movie for you.
