Podcast - The Interview - Starring Seth Rogen and James Franco

What makes The Interview so controversial is not so much its subject matter, but the reactions to that subject. The drama surrounding this film makes the hoopla associated with 2004's Team America: World Police, seem like a mild hiccup. Aside from the cowardice that has been shown by American movie theater owners, the biggest shame in all of this has been the overshadowing of a decent comedy. Put aside the whole "Act of War" thing (it's easier if you're American, harder if French), and look at this film as what it is- a Seth Rogen/Evan Goldberg collaboration. They've worked together on hits like Superbad and This is the End. If you're not into their type of humor, then The Interview isn't for you. What works so well, is the interplay between whoever's on the screen. Just like its namesake, The Interview consists mainly of two people at a time, improvising on the scene's subject, conversing and manipulating each other to hilarious conclusions. The only time it doesn't work as well, is when too many people are shoved into the mix.
