Who would have thought that the first (positive) surprise of the year would be a movie starring Seth Rogen in a romantic-comedy?! This genre has been having trouble for the past few years (only a handful of films are worthy of high praise), but Long Shot’s amazing cast called my attention at the beginning of 2019 when I was organizing my watchlist of the year. I genuinely love Rogen type of humor, and Charlize Theron is one of the best actresses of the 21st century. Add three more terrific actors like Bob Odenkirk (President Chambers), O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Lance), and an unrecognizable Andy Serkis (Parker Wembley), and you have yourself a clear path to success.
So, what’s the missing key ingredient? A well-written and compelling story, which is the number one problem with rom-coms of today. Most of these movies go straight to streaming services since they’re the easiest ones to produce. Just gather a reasonably decent cast, put together a cliche narrative about how two people with nothing in common end up together through the most unlikely and dumb plot devices, and you have a low-budget “success”. Long Shot‘s premise follows a variation of that concept and it still carries the trademark conventionality, but it’s the chemistry of its leads, the hilarious comedy and the beautifully-written screenplay that makes this one stand out.
The dialogues don’t feel forced, a large portion of the jokes land, and the best compliment I can give to this film: it took itself seriously, and it worked seamlessly. There’s a heartfelt message to transmit to the viewers, and it’s delivered in the most realistic possible way. The romance doesn’t seem far-fetched or born out of nowhere. Instead, it has a wonderful arc, filled with real-life relationship moral dilemmas and difficult decisions. Everything that any character says either makes sense or makes you laugh.
The cast is brilliant as expected. Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron‘s chemistry is palpable, and it’s one of the reasons why the romance part of the movie works. They clearly had much fun on-set, and that’s visible on the big screen. Rogen provides most of the laughs, but he also proves that he can be dramatic if necessary. Theron is just impeccable. She simply can’t act a single line of her script in a way that’s not perfect, whether it’s a romantic scene or a comedy bit. Her range is on display throughout the entire runtime, and Jonathan Levine should be extremely grateful as a director to have such an outstanding actress to work with.
In addition to all of this, there’s one thing I never expected to be praising right now: the makeup department. Before the film, I knew that Andy Serkis was on the cast, but I completely forgot what his role was. Without an ounce of exaggeration, I truly believe that it’s almost impossible to recognize him as Wembley if you don’t know beforehand that he participates in the movie. When I re-checked the cast members, I remembered that he had a role indeed, and I was almost as surprised by the discovery as I was with how much I enjoyed this film. O’Shea Jackson Jr. also delivers a hilarious performance while Bob Odenkirk doesn’t really have much screentime to shine.
This is one of those movies that you can’t precisely point out obvious flaws. A flawless film doesn’t mean it’s a perfect 10/10 movie. It just means you really don’t have any major issues with it. If every single aspect of a film is just “good”, then the movie is “good”, not “incredible” or “amazing”. That is how I view Long Shot. It’s an extremely entertaining rom-com, undeniably one of the best I’ve seen these past few years. Even though the main concept follows the genre’s traditional storylines, its well-written screenplay, hilarious comedy bits, and outstanding protagonists make a surprisingly serious story remarkably entertaining.
It’s a fast-paced 2-hour runtime that I recommend to anyone who just wants to have a good time at the movie theater.
Oddly mild and politically centrist-affirming for a movie about a woman who spends the majority of the movie trying to enact a climate-benefit policy. Also kind of exists in this weird in-between purgatory world where it’s “so woke” and “not like those other RomComs where the guy gets the hot girl just because” but is simultaneously like… The slovenly ~nice guy~ still gets this political powerhouse stunner of a woman by the power of… Being himself? I guess. It’s a very half measures movie, is what I’m saying. Moves towards one set of things but can’t leave the other set behind. And so a movie with this middling a perspective, of course, gets the middling-est of ratings.
Charlize is a fuckin’ champ in this though, absolutely runs the show.
_Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron are funny and entertaining.
Long Shot (4 out of 5 stars).
Long Shot is actually a funny romantic comedy film that delivers with Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen’s performance. Involving a little story in the political world with a Secretary of Defense wanting to run for President. And try to help and change the world.
The plot follows journalists Fred (Seth Rogen) and his childhood crush Charlotte (Charlize Theron) who used to babysit him when he was a teen. She is now a Secretary of Defense and trying to run for President. She hires Fred to help her with her speech and trying to help be an influencing leader. While they both start falling for each other. While her team is against them having a relationship which he might be a bad reputation for her running as President.
I am not really a big political person. The plot does involve Charlotte trying to help save the planet and thinking more green. She is trying to save the world for the better. Fred is a democrat and coming from a case of being undercover in a White Supremacist club. Which he jumps out of a window in a three story building cause they found his cover. Fred has been closed minded about the other people’s perspective in the political parties.
Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron are great with their roles. It was fun seeing these two on screen. Theron playing Charlotte, and getting high on a drug which she gets an emergency call to help negotiate with another political leader in a different country was a lot of fun.
Director Jonathan Levine and his witty script was a lot of fun. It had humor, charm, and the cast was great.
Theron is a movie star of indefatigable range. Hell, I’d vote for her.
Politics is a game of appearances and navigating mass appeal, of course, and it’s doubly hard for a woman, no matter how beautiful, how solid her policy positions; early focus groups score Charlotte in the 90th percentile, but “if you were a man, you’d be in the ‘190s,” Lisa Kudrow’s press manager admits. The key to ensuring her electability? To bring her ‘humor’ factor up a few points, to make her seem more relatable to the American public. After all, a woman can’t just be smart and capable – she has to be one of the guys, as well. On top of that, she has to be fodder for romantic gossip, whether with Fred or the gormless Justin Trudeau-like James Steward (Alexander Skarsgård), with his toothy grin and inoffensive good looks.
Much the same can be said of Theron, an actress who can seemingly do no wrong, offering crackerjack chemistry with Rogen while standing out in her own standalone comic scenes. Rogen’s the funnyman of the equation, but even his wisecracks can’t hold a candle to a late-film scene where Charlotte has to suddenly negotiate the return of a captured American soldier while rolling Molly hard. Whether she’s kicking ass in full-on action pictures, winning Oscars in prestige dramas, or cracking wise with the best of them in comedies like this, Theron is a movie star of indefatigable range. Hell, I’d vote for her.
All of this only scratches the surface of Long Shot’s unconventional charms and doesn’t even mention the beautiful, scene-stealing presence of O’Shea Jackson Jr. (an actor I’ve loved since Ingrid Goes West) as Fred’s laidback, successful best friend. But that’s the appeal of something as warm, easygoing, and unexpectedly political as Long Shot: if you want to see it for the Seth Rogen jokes, have at it. But fully engage with it, and you’ll find a lovely romantic comedy about two people struggling to make a relationship work when the fate of the free world (and public opinion) is at stake.
