Last Night, I Saw “The Interview”

I wasn’t planning to, but an opportunity arose, and I am so disgusted by Sony’s craven announcement (not even an on-demand release, in which people could watch at home), that I decided to watch the thing. And guess what? It’s meandering and uneven and hardly the kind of offensive story that required censoring. There are a few great laughs, but the scariest things in the movie are Eminem saying he’s gay and Seth Rogen getting naked. Of all the celebrity responses to the news of Sony’s cave-in, my favorite is Arsenio Hall‘s: ‘”Madea goes to North Korea” will never get a green light from Sony now!’
