'Long Shot' is a comedy front runner about politics, journalism and love.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

Long Shot succeeds far more by dodging sharp suggestion or troubling resonance than by expressing a point of view - even as one proves perceptible within it.

Levine's comedy works, supported by a well-built story and by its political background that makes (Long Shot) a smart comedy. [Full Review in Spanish]

There's something about the unexpectedly shrewd beauty and the beast story line that proves as charming as it is thoughtful. This is a smart romantic comedy for smart audiences.

May 27, 2019
Situationally unique, funniest in small zinger doses, and frustrated enough with ongoing civil failures to at least say *something* - as textbook that blueprint may be.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
May 24, 2019
Beyond satire that's anything but politically correct, Long Shot is a definite crowd-pleaser with its heart in the right place.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

As political satire Long Shot is pretty light, but as romantic comedy it packs plenty of charm into a straight forward formula.

Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron deliver in this smart, funny romantic comedy that adults will definitely enjoy. [Full review in Spanish]

A bit raunchy, a little sweet, and totally entertaining.

Jonathan Levine exhibits surprisingly tight control over the satirical elements ... But he allows everything to plummet to the absolute bottom as soon as the romance begins.

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.
May 17, 2019
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10
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.
Full Review | Original Score: B+
