Long Shot

{5/5} “Well, I wouldn’t call the President inexperienced. I mean, he did play a President on a very popular television show for over a decade.”

Long Shot, released in 2019

Charlotte is the Secretary of State — the President has promised to endorse her run for the presidency as long as she keeps doing a good job for the next 2 years. Fred is a journalist who was forced to quit his job because his newspaper was bought out by a shockingly horrible corporation. Charlotte was once Fred’s babysitter years ago, but when they meet again she hires him to be one of her writers.

Both main characters are interesting people.

There’s a crude aspect to it, but it does have an important message. It’s about being true to yourself and the world.

Bob Odenkirk and Lisa Kudrow have small parts but are screamingly funny. Andy Serkis is unrecognizable as an old man.

Stars Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen. Directed by Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies).
