James Franco & Seth Rogen’s humor is there all the way.
Two thumbs up for the marketing strategy, 2 thumbs down for the movie. One or two laughs that’s all they got from me in this $5 dollar movie.
The only reason I saw the movie is because I got into the “there are menacing threats from North Korea if we show the movie to the world”, liars ha! At least that is my conjecture. Anyways, the strategy worked, people were talking about the movie and they got our attention or at least they got mine.
The movie is a typical Franco and Rogen film that we have all seen over and over again. It’s like they sit down, smoke greens and write ideas, use their money and contacts to promote the “North Korea responded badly” BS and boom they sold the movie on the web.
The result: $5.99 dollars spent on a dumb story with a great marketing strategy. Thank you Hollywood!
