Long Shot Reviews

May 19, 2019
A formidable comedy that comes to trace the structure of another modern classic of media decompensation and issues of authority in couples, 'Notting Hill.' [Full Review in Spanish]
May 17, 2019
Feels so genuine and so cleverly written that the lack of originality in its structure takes a back seat to the witty dialogue and winning performances.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

Long Shot is a pleasant enough romantic comedy about a mismatched couple. But its attempt to balance adult sophistication and adolescent silliness, and the romantic with the raunchy, never quite gels.

Long Shot is not a bad movie. I laughed out loud multiple times, and I'm glad I saw it. It's just not a 10-buck movie, either.

The Longest Shot of all: What are the odds that this zany rom-com would turn out to be the funniest crowd-pleaser of 2019 so far?
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
May 17, 2019
a traditional romcom that also says a lot about media and politics, while at the same time serving as a plea for reconciliation between the Hillary and Bernie wings of the Democratic Party.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
May 16, 2019
A GOOD romantic comedy. It's so rare to find one of this level that it feels like a small miracle. [Full Review in Spanish]

Female presidents of the United States may be in short supply (or, sadly, in no supply) in the real world, but they've become surprisingly common on screens big and small.

May 14, 2019
A snappy script with just the right amount of political awareness helps make this one of the funniest romantic comedies in recent memory.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Intelligent, witty, and profane. Charlize Theron can do anything, apparently.

A good dose of comedy. [Full review in Spanish]

May 12, 2019
Surprisingly it is the seemingly oddball coupling of Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen which renews my hope in the whole genre.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
May 11, 2019
Long Shot repeatedly lets the air seep out of its premise. Yet the comedic content is on point, and the cereal-related quip is likely to remain the funniest line I'll hear in all of 2019 cinema.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

this seemingly simple film actually has a lot to say about life and the world we live in today, and is a sure bet for a great date night and to wind up on my 10 favorites list at the end of the year.

[A]n often hilarious, occasionally uncomfortable rom-com for the liberal stoner crowd.
May 10, 2019
At the end of the day, Long Shot exists to be a crowd-pleaser, a heart-warmer. Though it falls away, the good does outweigh the bad but, honestly, not by a long shot.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10
May 9, 2019
There are definitely some pacing problems-and a muddled message about centrism that could've been elaborated on or dropped-but if the ultimate intention of a romcom is to make you both laugh and swoon, then Long Shot is right on target.
May 9, 2019
It works better as a romantic comedy than as a political satire.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
May 9, 2019
Earns its R rating big time but the talents of Theron and Rogen manage to make it end up a sweet rom-com.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
May 8, 2019
This is surely one of the most welcome surprises of the cinematic year, with Jonathan Levine's enjoyable film showing that unorthodox casting combinations can work and that there is still life in the romantic comedy.
