6.6/10 on IMDb
Now this is not the worst rated movie out there, but this is the one I got the chance to watch. I think that this movie was pretty decent. It was more interesting to me to see what this movie was going to get away with. There were so many things that were pretty risky for them to have in this movie such as I don’t know… EVERYTHING THAT HAD TO DO WITH NORTH KOREA!! I don’t really understand how Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg got away with it, but they did so good for them I guess. Seth Rogen and James Franco are a perfect pairing in real life and I think just a perfect pairing for this movie as well. The somewhat seriousness from Rogen really made everything that Franco’s character said even funnier. This may have been a movie with mixed reviews but holy crap was it funny. There were so many times that you just forgot about what was really happening because you were just laughing so hard. You almost forget about the horrors that are happening in North Korea and just think about their leading driving a tank and jamming out the Katy Perry’s ‘Firework‘. I think it was very clever how instead of killing off Kim Jong-Um (like they intended to) that they made him completely break down in front of all his people and then LATER kill him in a fiery explosion. It makes you wonder if something like this ever could happen and what it means for the USA. All in all, this movie was not horrible and made me laugh uncontrollably. It had a great cast and a pretty good plot line as well. I think I’m gonna agree with IMDb and say about a 6.5/10.
