Plot Summary

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.

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia 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 a 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 »
Goofs It's stated that Charlotte Field is the youngest US Secretary of State ever. Though her age isn't directly stated, it is implied she is 41, as Fred states she was 16 when she babysat him 25 years prior. Richard Rush served in 1817 when he was 37, and Edmund Randolph served in 1794 when he was 40. See more »
