Both known and forgotten horror films of the 20th Century

First of all, this was so funny it was painful! The same awkward humor that Seth Rogen and James Franco are now famous for, mixed in with an assassination plot to kill the leader of North Korea; aka, a mess of awkward and horrible situations that has many people doubled over in fits of laughter because of the sheer absurdity of the whole story. Rogen and Franco play Aaron and Dave, who work for a TV talk show, and would like to do something that would be considered real journalism. After learning that the President of North Korea like their show, Dave come up with the idea to sit down with him to conduct an interview. All seems to be going well with setting up the interview when a CIA Agent Lacey (Lizzy Caplan) is sent to talk the two men about "taking out" President Kim. Acting was overdone, but it was done out hilarity sake, and given what the story was about, I think it's understandable. The story itself reminds me of the old slapstick comedy, where these guys are being funny, for the sake of being funny, and while the humor is still a little too awkward for some people, it fit this film perfectly. Sadly, this film had become the most infamous film of 2014, and only a few theatres were able to play it the day of it's release. All I will say is, it was a good film for laugh, and it's a shame that the release of this film was anything but funny.
