The Interview was one of those movies that I had some interest in seeing after they decided not to air the movie in theaters.
I decided to watch it once it was put on Netflix Streaming. As I mentioned in the John Spano 30 for 30 article. This article is written on January 28, 2015. At this time The Interview is still available on Netflix Streaming. For an update on what is still available for viewing on Netflix Streaming checkout instantwatcher.
The movie begins with Dave Skylark (James Franco) interviewing Eminem (himself). In this movie Eminem reveals to Skylark that he is a homosexual. I kind of understood at this point that the movie was heading towards crazy comedy. Skylark gets an interview with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un (Randall Park). A CIA agent pays a visit to Skylark and Aaron Rapaport (Seth Rogen), the morning after Skylark and Rapaport are out all night after dropping Ecstasy pills. The CIA agent wants them to poison Kim Jong-un via transdermal strip. Other aspects of the movie include portraying the North Korean leader’s feminine side and his love for Katy Perry’s “Firework” song.
The Interview gets a 7.1/10 on IMDB and 54% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. Personally I like the movie, otherwise I wouldn’t have written about it. I wouldn’t put it in a category of Oscar winning motion pictures, but it’s the kind of stupid humor that would make one laugh.
For now the Interview is on Neflix Streaming, so the price is right. If you are in the mood for a stupid comedy than definitely check it out.
