Dave Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapaport run the celebrity tabloid show "Skylark Tonight". When they land an interview with a surprise fan, North Korean dictator Jong-Un Kim, they are recruited by the CIA to assassinate him.
When their new next-door neighbors turn out to be a sorority even more debaucherous than the fraternity previously living there, Mac and Kelly team with their former enemy, Teddy, to bring the girls down.
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." When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.Written by

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 ...

This movie is simply nothing special. I give it a 5 out of 10. It entertained me, and bored me at times. The plot is predictable. I've read some reviews here and I honestly don't understand how people find it so funny. I didn't laughed out loud even once... I did chuckle though, but that was it. I believe many people wrote reviews here without actually watching the movie. This movie is NOT a 9 (as is the rating right now). This movie is NOT better than The Godfather as to have such rating!!! I think Seth Rogen could do much better stuff than this. The actors are all OK, no big interpretations or something like that. In conclusion; this is not an special movie at all... 5 STARTS!!!
