The Interview: A Movie Review with bonus Diana Bang Rule 5

A typical Rogen Franco movie.  OTT, crude, but funny. I didn't mind dropping $5.99 to rent this one.  It was actually better than I thought it would be.  It would probably piss Kim Jong Un off.  Definitely not for kids, but funny.

Instapundit has this link to Claudia Rosett:
And yes, The Interview is crude, vulgar, silly, tedious at times and crammed with what we might politely call locker-room gags, presumably meant to appeal to the lowest common denominator of modern pop culture. If you’re in the market for a brilliant comic and cultured takedown of tyranny, era no object, then you’d do much better to spend an evening with Carole Lombard and Jack Benny, in the 1942 classic about a Polish acting troupe versus the Nazis, To Be or Not to Be.
But as a graphic jab at North Korea’s totalitarian system, including its third-generation current tyrant, Kim Jong Un, The Interview — despite its lavish dose of rubbish — is a standout achievement. It is a burlesque laced with moments of truth that anyone can understand.

I will throw in a bonus Diana Bang Rule 5:


  1. And "To Be..." came out right after Pearl Harbor, so nobody saw it.

    Hope you had a Merry.
