Keith L. Williams,
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.
Charlize Theron, Seth Rogen and Bob Odenkirk all appeared in different seasons of Arrested Development. Odenkirk for one episode, as Lindsay & Tobias' marriage counsellor, in Season 1, Theron as Michael Bluth's love interest in Season 3 and Seth Rogen as a young George Bluth in Season 4. See more »

Eight for a forgotten genre
Romantic comedy, serious derivatives.
Nice cast, hilarious and moving scenes, not a shallow piece of art.
Because it's a fairy tale, and we want to belive. Even when one denies it all.
Try it again.
I was lucky to have chosen to watch.
We have to insist on this kind of midfull, light approach to serious issues.
