“The Interview” movie quotes follow the story of two tabloid TV show folks attempt to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un. The action-comedy was directed by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen using a screenplay the two co-wrote with James Weaver. “The Interview” was scheduled to open theatrically on December 25, 2014, however due to threats against theaters and Sony, the film was pulled from its release on December 17, 2014.

In “The Interview,” Dave Skylark (James Franco) stars on a popular but not exactly highly regarded tabloid television show, Skylark Tonight. So when he and show producer Aaron Rapoport (Seth Rogen) learn that Kim Jong-un (Randall Park), the ruthless dictator of North Korea, is a fan of the show and wants to appear on the program, they see an opportunity to gain some legitimacy in the industry.

But just before they head to North Korea, Agent Lacey (Lizzy Caplan) from the CIA intercepts them and asks them to assassinate Kim during their trip. They agree to the task, train for it and head overseas but it doesn’t take long for them to realize that they are definitely not suited for this line of work.

“The Interview” hits theaters alongside other late 2014 films such as ”The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” ”Annie,” ”Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb,” ”Mr. Turner,” "Life Partners," "Comet," "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1," "Horrible Bosses 2, "Penguins of Madagascar," "Dumb and Dumber To," "Foxcatcher," "Beyond the Lights," "The Homesman," "Interstellar," "The Theory of Everything," "Nightcrawler," "Big Hero 6," "Before I Go to Sleep," and "Horns.”

    Aaron Rapoport: “You’re way too deep to pull out!”
    David Skylark: “I’m pulling out!”
    Aaron Rapoport: “No, we are not! You are leaving it in!”

    Seeing another side of Kim Jong-un, Dave changes his mind about wanting to assassinate him. Aaron won’t let him pull out now.

    Agent Lacey: “You are entering into the most dangerous country on earth. Kim Jong-un’s people believe anything he tells them including that he can speak to dolphins or he doesn’t urinate and defecate.”
    David Skylark: “Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, you’re telling me my man doesn’t pee or poop?”
    Aaron Rapoport: “Everybody pees and poops. Where would it go otherwise? He’d explode.”
    David Skylark: “But he does talk to dolphins?”
    Agent Lacey: [sighs]

    Agent Lacey tries to brief Dave and Aaron on what they can expect in North Korea. What actually happens, however, is that she realizes she might just be dealing with a couple of idiots.

    I Love You

    Video: YouTube

    David Skylark: “As the two best friends stared each other in the eyes, they knew that this might be the end of the long road. But even though that neither one could say it out loud, they were both thinking…”
    David Skylark and Aaron Rapoport: [whispers together] “I love you.”

    In a moment of clarity and seriousness, David and Aaron take time to point out how this mission might just kill them. They exchange their ‘I love yous’ and head out to kill Kim Jong-un.
