Long Shot may not be the return of the romcom, but it's certainly a real return to form.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

...despite the clunky, unimaginative script and the by-the-numbers direction, Long Shot is saved by the exact gimmick that probably green-lit it in the first place: Theron and Rogen.

November 21, 2019
Broad appeal with Long Shot as it plays to the Seth Rogen fan base, the rom com watchers, and anyone that enjoys political comedies. It's smarter and funnier than you'll want to give it credit for.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
November 21, 2019
The way Long Shot differentiates itself from the sexist sitcom cliche is by exploring the difficulty men have in ceding power to women, even if-perhaps especially if-the women are clearly more skilled and intelligent.
October 17, 2019
It's not a new Valentine's Day classic perhaps, but there are enough warm, fuzzy feelings, along with many laughs, to qualify for date night.
September 27, 2019
It has everything you want in a romantic comedy and more.
September 26, 2019
Long Shot somehow makes it all work
September 25, 2019
Even when the story is treading well-worn territory, Rogen and Theron are so authentic and lively together that you don't care you know exactly where it's going, you're just happy to be along for the ride.

September 22, 2019
Though it lacks a certain edge, Long Shot is a tight, funny, and warm comedy with a ton of heart and two fantastic performances at its center.
August 25, 2019
While flirting with some disturbing political truths, the film sometimes mistakes fatuity for freshness. If anything, it works as a showcase for the actors.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
August 23, 2019
Long Shot is actually romantic and genuinely a comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
July 8, 2019
Long Shot is a success in the polls thanks to Jonathan Levine's assured directorial hand, committed performances by Rogen and Theron, a stronger than expected script, and a romance that is genuinely romantic and affectionately heartfelt.

July 3, 2019
A fun date night movie which offers viewers a step above the typical rom-com fare that has most women swooning. You can do far worse than to spend your time and money on.

June 24, 2019
The kind of movie we rarely see in theatres nowadays: a well-made romantic comedy, starring two talented thespians. [Full review in Spanish]

June 20, 2019
US secretary of state Charlotte Field and windmill-tilting newspaper journalist Fred Flarsky are multiple poles apart, but she gets his wisecracks and his combative writing.

June 17, 2019
It was fun seeing Theron-always elegant and, of course, gorgeous-lighter and sillier than I've ever seen her. And comical, clever Seth Rogen, formerly cast as the buffoon or best friend in movies, is now slimmed down and almost believable as her guy.
June 14, 2019
The outcome is more incredible than the romance between Theron and Rogen, in a reserved society like the American one. But if they don't laugh at themselves, who is going to do it? [Full review in Spanish]
June 13, 2019
Charlize Theron demonstrates her talent by having her character shine as a true human being. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 12, 2019
Like in 50/50, the director Jonathan Levine balances diverse components with wisdom and wit and refreshes the romantic comedy. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
June 12, 2019
Thanks to Rogen and Theron's incredible chemistry, Long Shot feels like a revitalization of the genre. [Full Review in Spanish]
