- I imagined what's real 💜🎎🎴5 star

I have not watched a funnier movie for so long. Maybe not since the relative time of Manchurian Candidate. The acting unreal. Hard to tell truth from fiction. I laughed. I did not cry. Great fantastic job at ridiculing shame! Would recommend it to anyone having gender role issues. Great on-screen chemistry. Leaves the audience guessing. Especially the last scene. I'd never thought a femme fatale knew such great comedy!

- It was so funny5 star

Pure Seth comedic movie. If you like his movies you will like this one.

- Of course it's not for kids.4 star

Of course it's not for kids. You wouldn't think that you would have to say that to people, considering it's rated R and is about a fictional Secretary of State, but for those who find the opening scene insulting because they are Nazis themselves, it seems to be the go-to complaint. This is not the greatest movie ever made, but it's a really fun story about a kid with a crush on his babysitter. That's such a relatable concept. And the main characters change each other, rather than one making wholesale chages to get the other. It's a little My Fair Lady (or My Fair Rogen), and yes, a little Beauty and the Beast. Plus: people falling down; explosions; cursing; club drugs; hostages; and Canadians! It's definitely not fun for the *whole* family, but it is a lot of fun for grown-ups who can take a joke. Enjoy.

- Megan Kelly and Seth Rogen type of comedy5 star

Long Shot is the perfect romantic comedy with Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron there chimestry is amazing. The third act is kinda weak but in contrast this romantic comedy/potlical drama is just crazy stupid love.

- Nothing Serious but Really Enjoyable4 star

This was an enjoyable movie without having to worry about a serious plot line. To be honest, it’s a movie, entertainment, it should be fun. I’m not saying it’s perfect, but who cares.

- Pretty good4 star

This was not a movie I was gonna watch but I did. It was pretty good. It had some funny parts in it. I liked this movie.

- Gorgeous.5 star

I adored this movie. It's super clear what they're doing with imagery: making it clear that the first female president will need to be as real of a human being as all of her predicesors. I loved the humor, the tenderness and the careful new vision of romance in the face of power that this showed. It's hilarious but it's also a quietly important film. Five stars.

- No thanks1 star

Pineapple Express two please not this garbage

- Overall Great Film4 star

I was very doubtful that Seth Rogen & Charlize Theron together would carry a film. However, I was wrong. It was funny yet interesting. In addition, O'Shea Jackson Jr. was great even though he was only in the film for a couple of scenes. I recommend it.

- A bit far fetched, but cute3 star

We were interested in seeing the chemistry between both actors and surprisingly, it worked in the film. It’s an easy, light-hearted movie that we recommend.

- trust the reviews1 star

When watching this movie, I realized doing laundry and cleaning the floors were better options. Theron was the only reason for looking at the screen.

- Did1 star

Wasted talents on this drivel of a romcom.

- Funny Movie that kept me laughing5 star

Ignore all the negative reviews. This really was a surprisingly good movie that kept me laughing throughout. Definitely worth the watch.

- Give it a chance!5 star

I rented this movie because it looked like a light hearted Rom-Com and I love some Seth Rogan comedy and I also have a chick crush on Charlize so it was perfect. Super cute. Love some dirty humor but it wasn’t as bad as the reviews make it sound. Just go into it knowing it’s a romcom. Great chemistry. I’ll watch it again.

- Horrible Movie!1 star

Only managed to get thru the first 20 mins and I HAD to turn it off ; it was HORRIBLE 🙄

- Unecessarily crude1 star

This could have been a really nice film. For an alternative movie about the unlikely relationship between a journalist and an elite woman, try Roman Holiday with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.

- Horrible1 star

Why are studios still green lighting these undeniably unequivocally overrated intellectually challenging knuckle dragging infections of the human race?

- Sooooo Funny!5 star

Anyone who doesn’t like this movie has a stick up their butt....

- Utter Rubbish1 star

Only made it through 20 minutes before had to give up - just couldn't bear it anymore...

- If you have dark humor you’ll love it5 star

This is a hilarious

- Awesome5 star

Funny, romantic, but mostly funny. At first I thought I knew what was going to happen, but then that thing didn’t happen which kept me interested in the movie. Also, I now have the biggest crush on Charlize Theron❤️

- EXCELLENT!5 star

Excellent movie! Highly recommended by me jajajaja it was great

- I felt robbed with a 99 cent rental.1 star

What a dumb political piece. Charlize is in it, so people give it decent Rotten Tomatos scores, but look as the REAL PEOPLE reviews. ABSOLUTE GARBAGE. For a while, iTunes tried to hide the 20% Rotten Tomato score on this page until they got called out and it became a story. Disgusting.

- Decent3 star

It was alright.

- It Made Me Laugh4 star

Charleze is great. Seth is not as bad as usual. Script is good, a little long-winded at times but it works.

- Easily Rogan’s worst film1 star

It’s not fun, it’s not funny.

- Great comedy4 star

Some of the adult humor is cringe worthy, but overall great comedy film

- Typical Seth Rogan1 star

All Seth Rogan movies are the same.... the only thing missing in this movie was his little leach Jonah Hill!

- Ehh3 star

Charlize Theron is a legend

- Depressing1 star

What was a good idea has been debased by potty humor. Once again Seth Rogen manages to reach to a new level of low with his disgusting humor. Shame on Charlize Theron for lowering her standars for this idiot

- Garbage1 star

Two garbage actors failing at being funny. There I just saved you two hours of your life.

- “Cracker down”2 star

10 minutes in & it appeared to be a politically correct comedy film until Boyz 2 Men made the joke “cracker down” which is a total double standard. There’s no way a white character would have gotten away with the equivalent joke on a black character.

- Not Worth Ninety-Nine Cents!1 star

C’mon, you all know what I’m talking about!

- 🥴2 star

This movie could have been great, but the storyline wasn’t realistic , the character lines were lame and I could smell Seth Rogen there the TV 😷, dude is filthy.

- Don’t waste your time or money!1 star

Terrible movie! I wasn’t expecting much, but was hoping Charlize Theron would help it out. But even she couldn’t overcome the poor writing and far fetched plot ending.

- Worthy of Love5 star

They had me at Boyz II Men and didn't disappoint. Love the age of situational comedy - realistically romantic and not sappy. Could do without the stereotypical drug scene, but great chemistry between the leads and Lance is the best wingman ever. Definitely 'worthy of love'.

- Such a great movie5 star

Some of these reviews by other people are just insane. This was such an awesome movie. I watched it on a flight to Colorado and watched it again immediately after. One of my favorite movies by far 💙💙💙💙💙

- Total Waste of Time1 star

Probably one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Not funny, not entertaining, not well written, not an interesting storyline and lots of bad acting.

- Terrible1 star

Worst movie ever!

- Great romcom5 star

Charming and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny

- Amazing5 star

Rlly funny

- LOVE5 star

I give this move a A++++. It was so heart felt, and light hearted. It’s a feel good movie that will make you laugh your butt off. Totally recommend!!

- The Long Shot1 star

Stupid cute story • could of been cast and written better• could of watched it and chuckled • however the language is so explicitly bad and in every sentence from beginning to end • in all characters • the language completely ruined the movie • My ears aren’t not trash cans • I do NOT recommend this movie •

- Couldn't finish it1 star

This is one of the most agenda-driven, in-credible, un-believable movies I have ever seen in my life. It stretched suspension of disbelief to the point of making you feel like an idiot for continuing to sit there and let it roll. My husband and I had to turn it off after about 45 minutes (we've never done this before), and even then, we both felt like it was 45 minutes of our lives we would never get back. I will never watch another Seth Rogan movie.

- Ok film3 star

Seth Rohan is so disgusting. I could smell him threw my flat screen. I watched this film because Charlize was in it. The story line is lame and so are the character lines.

- Ughh...2 star

The movie has some really funny points... but towards the end I was just waiting for the movie to end... Not very good. I would recommend this movie to any of my friends.

- Awful1 star

Wanted to love it based upon trailer & cast but this movie is soooooo slow and awful.


Good movie

- Boring1 star

This movie was pretty boring to watch.

- Long Shot1 star

I’d give it zero stars if I could. The trailer is misleading to the rest of the film. The story line is strange and vulgar. Don’t waste $10 and an hour and a half on this one.

CJHMovieFan - Funny & Feel Good5 star

When Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen) a skilled, principled if a bit crude Journalist reunites with childhood crush and former babysitter Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron) a smart and accomplished woman who is now U.S Secretary of State who is going to make a run for president, Charlotte decides to hire Fred as her speechwriter for an environmental initiative. The two reconnect and romantic feelings begin to develop. Great chemistry between two likeable leads, you can see they genuinely like each other and you enjoy seeing them interact. They are both intelligent characters who think for themselves and aren’t manipulated by others or quick to make assumptions, like you might see in other romantic comedies. The film is really funny and feel good. O’Shea Jackson Jr is a standout supporting performance

JD Director - Theron is great in this movie5 star

It’s a lot of fun, makes you laugh and there is great chemistry between Theron and Rogen. Theron is as good as she’s been in anything for a while. Really enjoyed this movie.

Meeliemo - Loved it!5 star

Gave this a try and I’m so glad I did. Really enjoyed it. Wish there were more films like this.

Winston Supertubes - Rogan running on fumes1 star

Shouty stoner proves his sense of humour really did have a place somewhere in the 2000’s. Awful film. Charlize you’re way above this.

AnnieCYa - Pretty Funny.3 star

Ok this was pretty funny! Not quite the arc that’s presented in the trailer, a bit more stiff than that but still I give it 4 stars for trying & 3 for actual. A good attempt. Funny, current romantic comedy although there could have been more comedy!

Jimblwah - Terrible1 star

A terrible rom com with 16 year old humour. A google rom com film generator could have done a better job of writing this car crash.

tcole84 - Funny, Amazing and Wow!5 star

A great movie that was so funny and original. Seth looks gorgeous with his beard and plays a fantastic role as First Mister.

Richie UK - So funny5 star

Brilliant film and very funny

Gregoryb86 - Fantastic Comedy.5 star

Well written and directed and the cast work perfectly to make this a really enjoyable watch. 5*

AideeGee - Surprise hit!4 star

Didn’t expect much from this, but was pleasantly surprised. A lot of good humour, romance and a few positive social messages to boot.

Nial13 - Fantastic watch5 star

Funny and heart warming, unexpectedly entertaining movie

GavWes - Pleasantly surprised..4 star

Really enjoyed this. Well worth a look

aliballi29 - Great film language terrible4 star

This is a great film with incredible actors and great themes and role models for kids today but from the offset the language is terrible It is such a shame Great storyline and the lead is fantastic

AltheSasquatch - Loved it5 star

An instant, delightful classic. Romance lives. Enjoy.

karl76uk - Excellent5 star

Really good comedy totally enjoyed the movie !

Chazza396 - One of Rogen’s best!5 star

One of the funniest you’ll see. It has the perfect mix between humour and solemnity. Fantastic

Gracie_Lou_82 - Meh2 star

I’m burnt out on Seth Rogan. Gotten to the point where he just isn’t as funny as when I was younger. This movie was okay but not like phenomenal n I’ll never give a bad review on Charlize Theron.

Dicedtomatoes - Terrible Film1 star

I want my money back! Seth is a terrible actor. I do not recommend to anyone not even if its free! Total disappointment.

NYYazFan - What a waste1 star

This was awful. A waste of talent- we were really disappointed. Love Charlize but she did this movie only for the cash.

dj intrinsic - Great RomCom5 star

Whoever says it’s not for kids... did you not see the R rating?

JessicaDomoney - Hysterical5 star

So funny, I definitely recommend. On a few occasions I laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes 😂

BuddyDale - Painfully woke1 star

I could not make it past 10 minutes into this movie. It was so bad and an absolute waste of $6. Big mistake.

Ol’ Jack Burton - Grade A 💩1 star

Not worth a minute of your time

4tapout - Silly comical and cute.4 star

Don’t Buy into all the negative reviews, this by no means is an Oscar contender but it’s certainly not a flop either. It’s an enjoyable movie that probably can’t watch with the kiddos but a ton of fun to watch none the less! After all Charlize Theron is smoking hot as always and Seth Rogan is just his usual funny unpolitically correct version of what we many peoples wish to be....raw and real! Watch it, and really just enjoy a goofy movie!

Angel-Gott - Worst Movie ever - unfortunately1 star

I wanted to like this movie so much. It was an utter disappointment in every way. Waste of time and money.

vvlf - Hot Garbage1 star

As the title says, this movie is complete Garbage. One of only a handful of movies in my life where I would literally put in the effort to get my money back if it were possible

JEAA - Really Good5 star

The entire cast was great! Just all around funny. June Diane Raphael, really stood out, hilarious!

StEvE CaR - Horrible1 star

Why can’t they make a movie that’s entertaining? The hypocrisy of a rich white person saying that a rich white person is what’s wrong with the world is getting old. Can we leave the liberal agenda out of movies and just have some good entertainment for a change?

johatesnotifications - Recommend5 star

I was surprised by how much I liked this movie! I’m generally not a fan of the movies Seth Rogen is in, but this one had me laughing from start to finish. There’s definitely adult content which makes it unsuitable for kids, but give it a go.

Trying it against - Seth rogan is great5 star

I love Seth and watch all his movies. I enjoy them.

Goddess415 - FANTASTIC5 star

THIS MOVIE IS HILARIOUS! I loved it and it put me in a good mood. Sweet and funny. Both Rogan and Theron did a fantastic job. Thanks for making a great movie!

Adamalocke - Dude reported me on Twitter a year ago!1 star

He talked trash about trump I called him out and he reported me hahaha Canadians should stop interfering with our democracy!

4 Hope - Bad1 star

This movie was not funny. Whether you’re into crude humor or not, this just wasn’t funny, so it just ended up being a crude not good love story. It has a ton of unnecessary cussing that came off as the movie just trying to be cool and hip and it just fell flat. In all honesty, I have no idea how anyone could give it a lot of stars. It’s a terrible love story as well. I just wouldn’t waste your time.

Rhea26 - Was surprised5 star

It was really good!! My family loves it! Great actors with amazing chemistry!

SkullDragger213 - Love it!5 star

Great positive message!

Mswally505 - Pleasantly surprised4 star

Best movie I’ve ever seen? No! But it was entertaining and cute for the most part. It was a lot better than I expected and I laughed a few times too! Good rental

Pushba - Terrible political movie1 star

Who wants to watch a fake and unrealistic political movie? If you’re not sick of politics now wait in the next few months. It’s tacky to have a political movie released before the upcoming Presidential debates. You would be better off watching paint dry because it’s more productive then watching this movie.

michgro - You know it's had when only the drug-fueled scene is funny1 star

Trite, boring, sappy and a waste of talent. So much promise with quality cast and great reviews, feeling so betrayed by falling for it all. Yuck!

K_Jay_ - Cute for the film it is4 star

There are some laugh out loud moments and the two leads are good together. It's not meant to be anything other than a 'long shot' so anyone taking political commentary or accuracy from it (or not, as some of the other reviews suggest) is viewing it through the wrong lens. It's just a bit of fun! And fun it is.

Woody the Woodchuck - Just OK. More rom than com3 star

The first half was funny but then this comedy turned into an archetypal romcom, which the emphasis on romance rather than comedy. Disappointing.

PAPERBOY12 - Pretty cool5 star

Cool movie. Hasn’t been done before. Just sit back enjoy. By the way, im a republican.

rustywells108 - Wow. What a Surprise5 star

Both lead actors, all the supporting actors, the storyline and the writing were surpisingly great. I really enjoyed this!

SMP0426 - Hilarious5 star

I see a lot of butthurt republicans didn’t like it. It’s a movie. A comedy. People need to calm down. It was funny, lighthearted and dirty. Good watch.

Kingger - Lame1 star

It was kinda lame

Betsy1155 - Fun film, smart too5 star

Smiled more through this movie than any other in a long while. Perfect timing. Highly recommended.

Pathology27 - Poor Seth.1 star

This was his worst movie.... ever. It is unrealistic, not funny, and boring. Lost interest within the first 20-30 minutes. My worst purchase of the year.

Meriden1 - Started off lame but good ending4 star

Seth's character starts off very self-righteous...but that sets up for a great second half.

sinclairscot - Horrible!1 star

How this could get 89% on Rotten Tomatoes is beyond me. Really really bad. Boring, not funny, sloppy writing. The only slightly funny bit is him falling down the stairs - which you see in the trailer. Do not waste your money or time.

Marty Hustle - Funny Movie4 star

Rogan still finds a way to make you laugh with his comedic antics and high pitch voice, roll a joint and watch this movie!

FaceBookReview - Cool3 star

It was ok far from a 4 closer to a 3

AnnaEby - What?3 star

Not sure what all these reviewers problem is. They must be anti politics. Touchy touchy.

Huhlkiuy - Don’t watch1 star

I rarely leave a review but when I do it’s because I truly don’t want anyone to have to waste their money or time on a movie like this. Boring. Seemed to be pointless. Not funny. Probably the worst movie I saw all year.

blbeales - Such a cute and funny movie!5 star

Best romantic comedy I’ve seen in a long time!

hachenabush - Don’t bother1 star

The movie has very bad acting, not worth the time

Takingsh0tz - Great movie5 star

A lot of people are butt hurt about the “agenda” or certain jokes, but it’s jokes! This is a comedy and people are acting like it’s supposed to be serious. If you like a good laugh you’ll like this movie. If you get offended by everything, don’t watch it.

Danny and Kimmy - Worth a watch5 star

I gave it five stars as I found it original and funny. There was some great lines in this movie and you can never go wrong with CT or SR. I thought their chemistry would be off, but they nailed it. She is so gorgeous and she is a very talented actress. Seth is funny as always. He usually plays the same type of role, and not much changed here, but his unique brand of comedy never gets old. Give it a watch; you won't be disappointned. PS: the people who are hating on it, are probably just upset about the way the movie makes fun of a Fox News type station. It's just a movie. Have fun!

BocciaBall - Laugh out loud5 star

I’m still thinking about the funniest parts days later. My boyfriend and I cracked up. Manages to feel very current and find humor in modern ideas of gender and politics.

Fiviviffigivivufbffyhdeg - Garbage1 star

It’s a trash.

Musicalfrank - Not very good1 star

Pretty lame. Too bad because she's had much better roles in the past.

Wasted evening - Mistake1 star

We thought that we rented a romantic comedy but got a vulgar movie. We thought that it would surely improve but finally gave up with 30 minutes left. We were fooled by the Rotten Tomatoes 81%. When you drill down to reviews, almost as many gave 1 star as 5 stars. We agree with the 1 star crowd. Once again, the trailer is the only good minute of the movie.

Sweet_T76 - Hilarious😂5 star

I thought the movie was really funny. I laughed all the way through it’s the first movie in a long while that has had me laughing from beginning to end.

991tts - This could have been an amazing comedy...3 star

1. Without Seth Rogen 2. Without drugs (what is it with Seth Rogen and drugs?) 3. With a somewhat funnier and crazier cast, even if Charlize Theron was actually pretty good in her role

HockeyGuy in STL - Not funny2 star

Just not funny. Lost track of how many times someone dropped the "F-bomb". Could have been so much better...

Brazad - Crudeness unchecked2 star

Not my kind of movie. I thought the sweet, fall in love, kind of storyline sounded original. But the over-the-top crudeness was way too much for me. I wish I could unsee about a quarter of the movie, but I can't.

flickgrl13 - Another left leaning Hollyweird movie1 star

Getting tired of another left leaning cast trying to push liberal & religious agenda. Seth Rogan really trying hard to be funny. Also as a parent don’t think it’s smart to keep glorifying drug and alcohol use.

Greek Woman - It worth it2 star

Don’t waste your money. Not funny. Boring.
