'The Interview' Was A Funny Movie

Here's a totally random thought that not provoked by anything in particular: 'The Interview' was a perfectly funny movie.

This has never made a ton of sense to me...

Actually, I guess it does, because comedies usually have lower scores on Rotten Tomatoes than one would think.

Do I think it was the best movie to come from Seth Rogen or James Franco? Certainly not, but 'The Interview' was pretty damn funny and, if nothing else, supplied some good laughs. This season was worth the price of admission alone...

(best Eminem movie scene, just ahead of this...)

Now, there's obviously a bit of irony to the term "price of admission" here, because most everyone watched this movie on their computers or phones following the Sony Picture hacks and threats over releasing this movie in theaters. The company canceled the wide-release and controversy surrounded the threats and decisions made following them. There was hysteria around an intentionally-dumb comedy movie that is sort of funny to look back on. I won't get too deep into the controversy, but it is one of those things you might explain to your kids one day only for them to be confused and ask, "why was that a big deal?"

For me, anytime a movie or entertainment can mock and make fun of a bad person, I am all in…

It's a big reason why 'Jojo Rabbit' worked so well for me, I thought Taika Waititi did a great job with the satire in that movie.

In a rare sight to see, 'The Interview' is actually on both Netflix and Hulu…

Again, this is a random thought unrelated to any news…

…and also a movie that, while not the greatest, delivers enough laughs to make it worth a watch.
