Everybody loves the underdog story. Long Shot is the underdog story that I did not see coming. With the success of various raunchy comedies, such as Superbad, Neighbors, Pineapple Express, and many more, you would not expect a Seth Rogen vehicle to be as heartfelt as Long Shot is. Director Jonathan Levine, no stranger to making films with pairs, 50/50 and Snatched both documented varying types of friendships, but the real surprise is that Long Shotis a beautiful romance. Charlize Theron is secretary of state Charlotte Field, who hires on Fred Flarsky (Rogen), a writer that doesn’t fit the mold of typical government staff, and also has a history with Charlotte from high school. What begins as a test to breathe a sense of humor into Charlotte’s possible run for president, turns into a heart felt story of finding love where you least expect it.
