The Interview is probably more famous for the real-life events rather than the film itself. Prior to the film's controversial release, North Korean politicians were furious about the subject matter, resulting in the distributor being the victim of a software hack.
It's little surprise why the communist nation were so upset, since the film focuses on an inept chat show host and his equally useless producer set to interview the Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, but they do so with the intention on assassinating him. 
An attempted cross between Spies Like Us and satire fails because of one key reason. It isn't funny. Resorting to dick and fart jokes and racism rather than poking fun at any political issues.
It wouldn't surprise if the events that happened before the official release were merely a publicity stunt, as it's very unlikely this would have raked in millions worldwide on word-of-mouth alone.
