Long Shot


  • As a movie that is a romantic-comedy, with socio-political commentaries, plus a mismatched couple premise, I found this to be perfectly fun and a crowd pleaser.

  • We all know Charlize Theron is a great actress, and it’s no exception here, but it’s always nice to see her do comedy.

  • Seth Rogen is…… Seth Rogen. He does what he does best.

  • The chemistry between Theron and Rogen here is solid, and the two of them are what makes this movie work as well as it does.

  • Rooting for this odd-pairing of a couple is what got me super invested with this movie.

  • It also has a good supporting cast, from June Diane Raphael, O’Shea Jackson Jr, Alexander Skarsgård, to Andy Serkis (who I didn’t even recognize!).

  • Boy II Men makes a fun cameo appearance.

  • Plus the movie soundtrack is also really good. My kind of jams.

  • The humor in this is definitely a lot of fun, and there were in fact several scenes when I actually laughed-out-loud.

  • Has just the right amount of comedic crudeness and steamy stuff.

  • I liked the thematic messaging of this story as well, which even includes some lessons that I was pleasantly surprised to see in this movie.


  • The thematic messaging isn’t to everyone’s liking, and it does hit you over the head multiple times with no subtlety.

  • There are several unbelievable plot points that might make or break this movie for you.

  • Story is generally predictable, and follows very familiar plot tropes.

  • Certain characters are as cliche as it gets.

  • Like with many comedies, there’s that particular lull in the story where things get really serious. While not completely saying it’s a negative by itself, I kinda wanted to just have a laugh all the way through until the end.
