Had 2 lol moments near the start then..... :/ considering how bad it was I wouldn't be surprised if Sony decided to use the hack (which never mentioned the film) in their favour by promoting this movie
Anyway, if you want to see a documentary of people who were allowed into North Korea and told more than they were supposed to, there's the Vice film when Dennis Rodman first went there. You can tell that this movie was inspired by it (but the documentary is actually much funnier, despite not even being a comedy)
The best parts of the movie were probably in the first 10 minutes.
Everything else was pretty stupid, but it still had some funny parts throughout the movie.
The other good thing about this movie is you get to see a lot of BC, since it seems to be mostly filmed in BC. This adds to the entertainment value as you get to figure out where each part is filmed. (I'm pretty sure North Korea has completely different trees.)
I do also remember driving around last year and seeing a bunch of military style vehicles with Korean letters all over in trailers! I was wondering what they were for. Now I have my answer.
I didn't have high expectations at all, I think Seth Rogen movies blow. But I've actually seen this twice now (once on my own, and once stuck with friends) and I have to say it's not as bad as I thought it would be. Definitely ridiculous and awful at times, but not horrendous.
And also cool to see local actor friends. The "Sook" character who hooks up with Rogen is local, and has no accent whatsoever; she had to put it on for the film.

Lol some people had pretty high expectations saying its "shit" etc lol
Watched it last night, HD version. Had a few good laughs, lots of stupid awkward parts and you can obviously see why NK didn't want it released it makes Kim look like a complete clown. All in all though it was a pretty typical Seth rogen comedy.
Wonder where the parts with the tank and missiles were filmed, it looks like either out in Chiliwack somewhere or like pit lake/pit river
