Don't accuse North Korea of having a sense of humor. Such a claim can't be made after it complained to the United Nations about a comedy flick starring Seth Rogen and James Franco in which the two are on a mission to assassinate North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Un. All that's left is for Dennis Rodman to give the movie two thumbs down.

In "The Interview," an American television host and his producer score an opportunity to interview Kim Jong Un. This prompts the Central Intelligence Agency to recruit the two men to rid the world of North Korea's leader. There's no mistaking the film for anything other than a comedy, but it still doesn't sit well with North Korea, which is accusing the United States of sponsoring terrorism and committing an act of war, Reuters reports.

The Interview

"To allow the production and distribution of such a film on the assassination of an incumbent head of a sovereign state should be regarded as the most undisguised sponsoring of terrorism as well as an act of war," North Korea's U.N. Ambassador Ja Song Nam stated in a letter. "The United States authorities should take immediate and appropriate actions to ban the production and distribution of the aforementioned film; otherwise, it will be fully responsible for encouraging and sponsoring terrorism."


Perhaps Kim Jong Un has a legitimate concern. After all, Seth Rogen did play a role as The Green Hornet, and James Franco cut off his own arm in his role as Aron Ralston in 127 Hours. Both also staved off demons in This Is the End. Pretty threatening comedians, in other words.

I think this was posted a few weeks ago. They felt it was an act of war to have this film made.

 

I think Kim Jong Un isn't aware all the other films that have been made, documentaries, comedies, etc.

 

He's just...so "ronery".

If another country made a movie about assassinating the leader of a major western country, they would do the same thing North Korea is doing.

They get to make whatever movie that they can sell to investors, and then to the public. Fearless Leader should realize that there's nothing to be afraid of. (except his people finding out some truths)

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
