From Sony Pictures Entertainment: “Dave Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapoport run the popular celebrity tabloid TV show “Skylark Tonight.” When they discover that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is a fan of the show, they land an interview with him in an attempt to legitimize themselves as journalists. As Dave and Aaron prepare to travel to Pyongyang, their plans change when the CIA recruits them, perhaps the two least-qualified men imaginable, to assassinate Kim Jong-un.”
The trailer looks hilarious and has the right combination of unique plot devices to send this “R” rated comedy to very lucrative heights. The big what if is if audiences are tiring of Seth Rogen and James Franco. I loved the trailer but I am left with wondering if the laughs I saw are all that the film has to offer. I have a lot of faith in the Rogen and Goldberg team and will see this film just because more often than not they deliver.
