Long Shot

Long Shot


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 really good movie. The actors have great chemistry. Great jokes, a bit of action, lots of fun!

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

not being a huge fan of rom coms I was pleasantly surprised to find myself laughing out loud througthis movie, seth rogan has some hilarious one liners that make you stay engaged with his character, Charlize theron is stunning as always and adds to rogans humour.it is hard not to draw parallels with our own primeminister with some of the scenes with charlizes character being a political dynamo and rogan a down on his luck journalist mimicking real life events. although fill with some of the... More normal cliché moments youd expect in a romcom this was a great night out and a good laugh, maybe a little long but very funny.Hide

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.

The Press Reviews

  • Very funny whatever you think of its more old-fashioned notions, the picture will charm many viewers who can set implausibility aside for a while; it's certainly the most commercial film yet by The Wackness director Levine. Full Review

  • Long Shot is a hilarious and heartwarming romantic comedy that will have audiences howling in shock and awwww. Full Review

  • More creepy than romantic, more chauvinist than empowered - and in all fairness, funnier and more entertaining than any comedy in months... Full Review
