More Info:
  • Tess Hofmann

    Comedy is most effective when it’s taking a risk. Here, the directors took a big risk, and managed to finesse something shocking and novel out of the familiar Franco-Rogen dynamic without overplaying their hand.

  • Drew McWeeny

    The Interview is laugh out loud funny all the way through, and once again proves that Rogen and Goldberg will do anything, no matter how dark, for a big laugh, and that character is just as important as punchlines in their work.

  • David Ehrlich

    Fashioning "The Great Dictator" and "Inglourious Basterds" into a cross joint and then lighting it from both ends, Goldberg and Rogen’s second directorial effort follows the hysterically violent misadventures of idiotic talk-show host Dave Skylark (James Franco, hamming it up) and his underachieving producer, Aaron (Rogen).

  • Joe Williams

    Within the bloodshot-eye perspective of their other stoner comedies, it’s bluntly funny and ever-so-slightly sweet.

  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    Crazy funny.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ben Kenigsberg

    The North Korea scenes are often very funny, with many of the jokes coming at the expense of the fish-out-of-water visitors.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    The Interview sticks to the anything-for-a-laugh plan for nearly the entire journey, with far too many jokes about things going in and coming out of rear ends.

  • Peter Travers

    It's stupid. It's in bad taste. It impossible. I know all that. Look, Quentin Tarantino killed Hitler in "Inglourious Basterds" and the neo-Nazis stayed quiet. It's a farce, people.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • G. Allen Johnson

    No matter what you think of dumb comedies, The Interview, thanks allegedly to Kim, has gone from disposable to indispensible cinema. It’s a must-see movie in the context of what has happened, and will spark a discussion of, in comedy, how far is too far?

    If Amy Pascal loses her job over this, it will be an outrage. The only thing about which we disagree is The Interview. She hated it; I think it’s a blast.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Randall Park’s interpretation of Kim is dark, and darkly funny, a delusional turn with wincing, believable bits of psychoanalysis.

    Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Real-life geopolitical blunders aside, The Interview generally hits its marks. And every time it does skid into juvenile idiocy — with too much scatological humor, for instance, and an overuse of “you-go-bro!” attitude — it follows it with a stride or two toward uproarious meta-satire.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    Both Rogen and Franco, who have marvellous chemistry and exude good cheer, continue to tweak their personas in this very amusing, very imbecilic film.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    While The Interview never slacks in its mission to tell jokes, it's such a messy and meandering movie that it never quite lands as a satire of politics or the media or anything else.

  • Brad Wheeler

    Elevated to some vague level of importance, not on merit but by circumstance.

    I didn’t laugh once, but there were several lines that, in context, got a wide fool-grin out of me. Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    Every once in a while, a movie is more than a movie, but it’s surprising when that becomes the case with a punk-ass comedy, one that’s more puerile than pointed yet not without some good laughs.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    It's not a political satire, or even satire of tabloid journalism. It's just another "bromance," with jokes so bad (they are) "freshmanic."

    NPR Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The Interview is pretty much what everyone thought it would be before all the trouble started: a goofy, strenuously naughty, hit-and-miss farce, propelled not by any particular political ideas but by the usual spectacle of male sexual, emotional and existential confusion.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The more desperately a comedy tries to be outrageous, the less likely it is to be outrageous -- or even just funny. And that's the fate that befalls The Interview, which offers a few moments of casual brilliance... but otherwise trips itself up in the threads of its contrived absurdity.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    Hate to say it, but this film ain’t half the satire it could have been.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Joe McGovern

    It's a pity that the film is bereft of satiric zing, bludgeoning the laughs with a nonstop sledgehammer of bro humor.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    The joke barrage becomes hit-or-miss, as if the creators — including screenwriter Dan Stewart, working from a story by Rogen and Greenberg — don’t know or care which is which.

    Time Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    An intensely sophomoric and rampantly uneven comic takedown of an easy but worrisomely unpredictable target.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Considering the controversy and chaos Sony Pictures Studios is undergoing because of it, The Interview fails to live up to the hype, floundering as a rowdy comedy as it grows duller by the minute.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Even if the film were sharper, even if it was made by satirists on the order of Stanley Kubrick and Terry Southern in their “Dr. Strangelove” days, I would still argue that greenlighting such a film is a blunder. The exercise of free speech does not exempt one from the consequences of stupidity.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Andrew Lapin

    Even with a strong first half lampooning the vapidity of American news media, The Interview is the worst thing Rogen has ever done.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    So this is the little movie that caused the big fuss. And little it is, a dopey bro-com that piddles along delivering mild laughs until it turns overly, unamusingly bloody in the climactic scenes.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    It essentially uses a major global issue to cheaply dress up what is two hours of hit-and-miss erection jokes.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    An alleged satire that’s about as funny as a communist food shortage, and just as protracted.

    Variety Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    In the real world, a debate has been raging over what does and doesn’t constitute torture. In the movie world, there’s no debate; watching The Interview is torture from almost start to finish.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • William Goss

    Considering how its inflammatory ambition and scattershot execution put it closer to Spies Like Us than The Great Dictator on the political comedy spectrum, The Interview should ultimately stand as the boastfully juvenile lightning rod that modern American culture deserved — no butts about it.

    Empire Full Review
  • Ken McIntyre

    Undeservedly controversial comedy lacks both laughs and nuance. The best bit they could come up with is Seth Rogen shoving a rocket up his bum.
