The Interview 1/5

DIRECTORS:

Famous faces:
James FrancoSeth RogenLizzy Caplan

Three words sum up this film: seriously weak comedy.

I was really looking forward to watching this film after all the controversy, but I was severely disappointed.

General Misogyny
Kim Jung-Un say that he gets so much “pussy”; cue whordes of women dressed as cheerleaders from his personal harem.
The only female characters (the CIA agent, and Sun, a high ranking military official) are mere plot devices for the protagonists to lust after. They aren’t given any funny lines.

Trying to Cash In on Feminism:
Double Bluff Misogyny
The film uses camera angles to highlight the female agents body (played by Lizzy Caplan), while a few minutes later several characters (including the CIA agent and Dave Skylark, played by Franco) react with disgust at the idea that she is being used to “honey pot” Dave by wearing things he likes (such as glasses).

Kim Jung-un and Skylark say they love Katy Perry, as she’s such a strong role model for young women.
