    It's not a political satire, or even satire of tabloid journalism. It's just another "bromance," with jokes so bad (they are) "freshmanic." show more

    An intensely sophomoric and rampantly uneven comic takedown of an easy but worrisomely unpredictable target. show more

    While The Interview never slacks in its mission to tell jokes, it's such a messy and meandering movie that it never quite lands as a satire of politics or the media or anything else. show more
