Long Shot (2019)

Seth Rogan: Crazy window-jumping journalist Jew, and Charlize Theron: Up-and-coming presidential candidate who looks/is hot. Who woulda thunk it? Unconventional duo ensemble.

Unconventional actor ensembles otherwise too.

Everything Seth touches turns to gold man.

It's so fascinating how he/they manage to take so ludicrous concepts as this into the mainstream, and yet do in such a simple; relatable way. Seth Rogen always puts himself to shame too. He's the butt of the joke, constantly.

Is that maybe what constitutes a good comic? Or just why you always like him so much, and/or why his movies work? Since he's the constant underdog and continual failure?

I'm not sure if that's why, but it does work, and the way the relationship develops is... devoid of the typical cliches. Even at the low point you can see there's something still embering. It never dies down entirely. They have their crisis and confrontations and all, but there's still love.

I appreciate that they don't take it to extremes just to break things apart as much as possible. They do it differently. The molly moment in the hostage negations too: Golden. And of course something you'd expect a Seth movie to include at this point...

What an awesome movie. Charlize Theron sure looks different by the end of it... somehow Seth suddenly seems in charge after all. What a love story.

I wish the world was more like this.

Transparent. Real (I'd like to think it could be at least). Caring.

No compromise.

 rated 4.5/5: almost awesome

That long shot thing btw... witticism on the Kennedy shot too? No? It goes full circle in a good way if it is...
