It has been quite a while since the last time I saw a romantic comedy movie and this one made it worth the while.
The story is rather obvious, but you kind of expect that for a movie or this type. It is safe to watch and will end by giving you a smile on your face. It is nothing revolutionary but it works.
Seth Rogan is a brilliant comedian and actor. I do not recall ever seeing a movie featuring him, that I didn't enjoy. In his role in Long Shot he has a perfect mixture of being funny but also taking his character serious. That is pretty amazing.
Charlize Theron might be among a very selected few that has a certain format which enables them to carry a role as her character in this movie. She is beautiful, witty, razor sharp and almost unbeatably strong.
O'shea Jackson jr. impressed me in his role of a lead character's sidekick. He pulled it off rather nicely.
If you are into romantic comedy combined with not a little satire on the American White House, this should be something for you.
