    I thought the movie was awful, but I'm not sure he ever went *in* the black hole - just close to it...  I wouldn't want to watch it again to find out, so... sorry if that's wrong.

    He got pasta the event horizon without spaghettification.

    Actually believe it not, the bigger the black hole is, the easier it is to survive falling into one. The BH in Interstellar was a supermassive one, weighing 100 million times the Sun. The tidal forces in such a BH are very gentle, spaghettification doesn't even happen until you're well inside the BH approaching the singularity. On the other hand, if he was falling into a smaller stellar mass BH, then he'd have been spaghettified long before he even reached the event horizon.

    The difference occurs as a result of gravitational forces vs. gravitational tidal forces. Gravitational forces depend on the inverse square of distance to change strength. Whereas, the gravitational tidal forces depend on the inverse cube of distance. That means the tidal forces are very strong closer in, but very weak further away.

    Haven’t seen the movie, but if it was a supermassive black hole, the tidal forces would be survivable crossing the event horizon. Ultimately, with the singularity - if it exists - in their inevitable future, they ultimately would die.
