To say I was underwhelmed by the trailers for Director Jonathan Levine’s latest, The Night Before, would be an understatement. The film looked to be a typical stoner comedy with none of the heart that I loved so much in his 2011 film 50/50. I’m glad I decided to see the movie anyway, because it might be the funniest film of the year.
It’s hard to see why there’s such a furor over The Interview. Yes, it’s a story about Americans trying to murder a sitting head of state, but similar to the old adage about trees falling in forests, if the offended population will never see the offending movie, does it really matter?
