“Long Shot” has Charlize Theron plays 40ish Secretary of State Charlotte Field, who is also planning a presidential run for the White House. Seth Rogen’s Fred Flarsky is the political journalist whom Theron hires to be her speechwriter, in part because she babysat him when she was in her teens. The slogan for the film reads “unlikely but not impossible.” At least they are in admittance that a story such as this one would be highly unlikely in the real world, right?
The film’s success will reside into whether or not we can fundamentally buy Charlize Theron falling for Seth Rogen. In real life, Theron is only six years older than Rogen, but she’s still Charlize Theron, hotness personified, the dreamy woman of my dreams, and he’s still Seth effin’ Rogen, not to diss him in any way, but what are the chances this kind of romance could actually happen?
I look forward to seeing “Long Shot,” which is scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 3.
