James Franco and Seth Rogen have been making the brom-com rounds lately, with sexy music videos and erotic art. Now it all comes to a head in the trailer for the BFFs’ new film, The Interview. The ratings of this trailer (and by ratings I mean the totally unscientific immediate assessment of my own personal feelings) are mixed.
The good: Rogen and Franco have a chemistry that could almost even save Pineapple Express. Also, Seth Rogen has a way of saying “pee and poop” that is crazy grown-man adorable. And plus 10 points for Lizzy Caplan, always and forever.
The bad: Probably lots of gay jokes. Like, at least a third of the movie, if we’re placing bets. And Franco has reached that point where I can’t separate him the actor from him the character, making me want to punch the movie in its smug selfie face.
Do we think the original title of this movie was maybe Hangover 4: North Korea Nights?
