The first movie is riddled with bizarre comic relief, including an extended dishwashing sequence and a bunch of farting cave trolls. The second entry &mdash; by far the best one &mdash; succeeds due to two genuinely thrilling set pieces: a trip down a river and a confrontation with a terrifying dragon.</p><p>The third movie, which turns out to be the worst, is so clearly overstretched that it's hard to justify its existence at all.

Having spent several weeks making the lives of movie executives miserable, they're now literally threatening the lives of average moviegoers.</p><p>It's easy to imagine the executives at Sony Pictures sitting around a conference table, cursing the day they decided to greenlight <em>The Interview</em>.
