We watched this movie last night and it’s what you’d expect from a Seth Rogen movie—good for cheap laughs. The movie was filmed in Vancouver and Burnaby, with shots from the surrounding mountains. The film is 1 hour and 52 minutes long, and the 1080p HD size is 3.71 GB.

Update: Apple said the following in a statement to Reuters:

“We’re pleased to offer ‘The Interview’ for rental or purchase on the iTunes Store,” Apple spokesman Tom Neumayr said in a statement.

According to a report last week, Apple reportedly denied Sony’s request to stream the movie in iTunes, despite the latter seeking help from the White House.
