In the action-comedy The Interview, Dave Skylark (James Franco) and his producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show "Skylark Tonight."

Kim Jong Un is several times throughout the movie referred to as the president of North Korea. However, the presidential title is reserved to his grandfather, Kim Il Sung, who by the constitution holds the title of "Eternal President". Even if the Americans didn't know this, the North Koreans would never have made this mistake go uncorrected. Kim Jong Un is normally referred to as the "Supreme Leader" of the country. See more »
Our Beloved Leader is wise. He is gentle, kind and strong. We wish him joy. We wish him peace. We wish him love. And the one thing in our time, we wish more than this is for the United States to explode in a ball of fiery hell. May they be forced to starve and beg, and be ravaged by disease. May they be helpless, poor and sad and cold! They are arrogant and fat. They are stupid and they're evil. May they drown in their own blood and feces. Die America, die. Oh please won't...

North Korea showed good taste in not wanting this piece of garbage released
It is little wonder there were threats over the release of this piece of garbage.I think Mr. Obama would have the exact same reaction if it was about him and he too would have teams of hackers shut it down. I enjoy this genre of film. However this one makes Scary Movie 4 look like Gone with the Wind. Unlike American Carol and Team America which were creative, humerus and well scripted, this movie comes across as if written on a cocktail napkin after 12 beers and 6 shots of tequila by horny adolescents. There is no redeeming value anywhere in the film. The script is awful, the story line is boring and predictable. How many times are we to be subjected to multiple 'boners' as the funny parts of a film. I like my crazy movies like Lost Skeleton of Cadaver and the Evil Dead trilogy. The only redeeming feature of the movie is that it will be quickly forgotten. What a waste of 112 minutes and five bucks..
