Journalist Fred Flarsky reunites with his childhood crush, Charlotte Field, now one of the most influential women in the world. As she prepares to make a run for the Presidency, Charlotte hires Fred as her speechwriter and sparks fly.
Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen) is a gifted and free-spirited journalist with an affinity for trouble. Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron) is one of the most influential women in the world. Smart, sophisticated, and accomplished, she's a powerhouse diplomat with a talent for...well, mostly everything. The two have nothing in common, except that she was his babysitter and childhood crush. When Fred unexpectedly reconnects with Charlotte, he charms her with his self-deprecating humor and his memories of her youthful idealism. As she prepares to make a run for the Presidency, Charlotte impulsively hires Fred as her speechwriter, much to the dismay of her trusted advisors. A fish out of water on Charlotte's elite team, Fred is unprepared for her glamourous lifestyle in the limelight. However, sparks fly as their unmistakable chemistry leads to a round-the-world romance and a series of unexpected and dangerous incidents.
Eric Eisenberg reported on Cinemablend that during the Los Angeles press day for Long Shot, the movie's director, Jonathan Levine, and its stars, Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen, all related that after Andy Serkis accepted the role of Parker Wembley, he then developed an extensive prosthetic makeup design for the character--a makeup regimen that required hours a day to execute--even though nobody asked him to do that. Rogen remembered, "we offered him the role, and then he was like, 'Okay.' And then he started sending ideas for what he would look like. And we were like, 'What do you mean? I thought he kind of looked a lot like Andy Serkis.' But he was like, 'No, I got this whole thing.' And we were like, 'Whatever, man!'" See more »
At the beginning of the first travel scene, there is an in-flight, outside shot of a four-engine, two-deck Boeing 747, the type used for Air Force One. At the end of that flight, Charlotte steps off a smaller, twin-engine Boeing 757, the type usually flown by the Secretary of State. See more »
[Charlotte explains to Fred the difficulties of being a woman who runs for presidency]
Yeah, listen, Fred: if I'm angry, I'm hysterical; if I'm emotional, I'm weak; if I so much as raise my voice, I'm a bitch.

Seth Rogen as Julia Roberts and Charlize Theron as Richard Gere. "Pretty Woman" with switched roles. Modern times. Easy and fun movie.
