Unlikely but not impossible.
Rom-com sees Seth Rogen as an unemployed journalist who finds himself unexpectedly working for his old babysitter (Charlize Theron), now US Secretary of State, and falling for her in the process. Jonathan Levine (The Wackness, The Night Before) directs.... More
When investigative journalist Fred Flarsky (Rogen) is laid off, his best friend Lance (O'Shea Jackson Jr., Straight Outta Compton) sets out to cheer him up by taking him out to get wasted at a charity event. There he runs into Secretary of State Charlotte Field (Theron), and makes a jackass of himself. Then again, he also makes an impression, and soon Flarsky is travelling the world with Field as her speechwriter. As the pair begin to get to know each other better, the first signs of romance flourish, but with Flarsky way out of his league, and Field harbouring presidential ambitions, the odds are against them.Hide

A fun, entertaining and hilarious rom-com. Rogen and Theron are great together, supported by the surprisingly hilarious Alexander Skarsgård, June Diane Raphael, O’Shea Jackson Jr and newcomer Ravi Patel.
Some fantastic topical humour in there, that doesn't shy away from poking fun at the current political situation in the US.

Think about "something about Mary" + "The west wing" and you have got "Long Shot"
Its funny with a strong female lead, Seth Rogan never fails to delivery of course, and he is up to his usual self and jokes.
Great feel good movie with a few hilarious bits in between

A very cute and charming rom-com with a script packed full of laughs and political edge.
Too long, and a wish fulfillment fantasy for sure (with an unnecessary stoner scene as per the norm for Seth Rogen movies) but on the whole, easily the funniest film of 2019 to date and possibly the best American rom-com since The Big Sick.
