The Interview is decent comedy that has its highs and lows while some of its jokes can be completely hilarious that your about to start crying some can fail miserably. Like me if you are a fan of other Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg movies i have no doubt you will end up liking this movie but for me personally i thought this was a (middle of the pack) movie they've done together. I mean its not as bad as "The Green Hornet" or "The Guilt Trip" buts its not as good as films like "Superbad" or "This is the End" its like the same level as their previous movie Neighbors. James Franco was clearly the star of the movie pretty much all of the funny parts involved him while Seth took the back seat on this one and was for the most part forgettable save for a couple scenes.
The story was pretty bland and foreseeable to see what was going to happen which pretty much just left the actual interview between Franco's character Dave Skylark and Kim Jung-Un played by Randall Park and to be honest it was a letdown i don't really want to go into it because id rather you just watch it. So the death scene of Kim Jung-Un was leaked the day the movie was canned by big-chain theaters and pretty much by Sony Themselves and of course with not knowing if the movie was going to be released i had to watch it so i guess that part did kinda ruin the movie for me since i already knew how he was going to die the whole time while watching it so that's on me. I thought it was pretty funny that Sony edited the death of Kim Jung-Un in hopes of not pissing off North Korea which didn't work out so well for them but anyways so instead of flames enveloping the screen and kinda seeing his head explode the original scene was going to have less flames and we get to see his face slowly melt away which if you ask me sounds WAY BETTER!!!!.
Overall i give it a 6.0 The funniest thing about this movie though is that it had a 9.9 based on 42k votes at IMDb even before the movie was released in theaters or online but now that it has its already dropped to a 8.7
