Highly Suspect Reviews: Long Shot

Long Shot Movie Review


Of all the least likely onscreen romantic pairings, Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen have to be up there near the top. Seth Rogen plays Fred, a freshly unemployed hard-left journalist. Charlize Theron plays the Secretary of the State with Presidential aspirations. When it turns out they knew each other when they were kids, she hires him to script write for him. He’s a casual drug user, she’s someone who reads wiki synopses of popular shows and movies so she can be aware of current pop culture. He’s a super-intense idealist and she’s filled with hope but a realist. Can anything make this work? Apparently, the answer is, yes, as our crew dug the heck out of this one. Listen to Chris, Harris, Marco, Kim, and Alan give their thoughts.


Directed by: Jonathan Levine

Starring: Seth Rogen, Charlize Theron, O’Shea Jackson Jr, Bob Odenkirk, Andy Serkis, June Diane Raphael, Alexander Skarsgard, Boyz II Men
