Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron star in this entertaining and ultimately sweet-natured odd couple romantic comedy.
Fred Flarsky spots his childhood crush at a party, and sparks soon begin to fly. But there’s a rub – she’s the US Secretary of State and he’s a scruffy journalist who’s bitterly critical of her administration. Yet she hires him to become her speechwriter. Theron and Rogen are perfectly ill-matched as unlikely romantic pair in this riff on the classical Hollywood comedy, albeit with riper language.
★★★★ “Long Shot manages to spin a winning mixture of warm-hearted fantasy and comedic edge. And Rogen and Theron shine.” - Ian Free, Empire
★★★★ “A hilarious and heartwarming romantic comedy.” - Kirsty Puchko, The Guardian
