Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogan) is a goofy yet gifted journalist devoted to exposing the truth. After losing his job when his company is bought out, he finds himself down on his luck with no plan. By chance, he runs into his former babysitter and crush, Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron), who is now Secretary of State with her sights set on the presidency. She's elegant, smart, and professional…everything Fred is not. After learning of his predicament, she hires him to be her speechwriter, despite the objections of everyone on her staff. Although a determinate to her campaign, Fred is helping Charlotte take a step back and enjoy life again.
Long Shot is a twist on the classic rom-com, switching up gender roles and ignoring the classic tropes. While it resembles a classic Seth Rogan film, awkward moments and drugs included, he managed to go beyond his regular cult comedy. Hilarious and heartwarming, Long Shot it a great movie to add to the rom-com rotation.
Released as a motion picture in 2019, rated R
