I recently had the good fortune to buy this movie from Google Play and while it was a silly story, it was absolutely hilarious! I had also posted this article on 12/19/14 regarding "The Interview" and the Sony hack...
The first thing you need to know is that if you don't buy this movie right now the terrorists win! Well, maybe not, but you should buy this if only to show the world that you're not intimidated by North Korea or their "Guardians of Peace" hacker group.
I watched this movie while I had a day all to myself; Holiday at work and no kids in the house at all. Come to think of it, I had all that time and I watched a movie... Oh well, I digress. The reason I bring this up is that I had no distractions and was able to devote my attention to the movie and boy, am I glad I did.
If you were a fan of "The Pineapple Express", "Neighbors" or "This is the End" then you will, no doubt, like this movie.
The premise is simple: A popular talk-show host, Skylark (played by James Franco), and his producer (played by Seth Rogen) get the chance of a lifetime; to interview the Supreme Leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un. Soon the Government reaches out to them and asks them to assassinate Kim Jong Un... Comedy and Hilarity ensue... (No Spoilers Here, sorry)
I highly recommend this movie to anyone; not because it's a superb film or it an award candidate, no, I recommend this movie because it's funny and I think everyone should stand up to threats.
