Reviews: Long Shot (2019)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Frederic & Mary Ann Brussat @ Spirituality & Practice
    • Excerpt: A raucous and rambunctious rom-com that makes some good points about gender equality.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Rogen’s hotness quotient may never be on the same level as Theron’s, but these two actors click so completely it is never in doubt that their characters are made for one another.
  • Van Connor @ Movie Marker
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: A somewhat generic rom-com elevated by the charm and likability of Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: House of Cards as a satirical workplace comedy, with just a touch of rom-com thrown in to render it genuinely sweetly sexy. Theron and Rogen share palpable chemistry, both comic and romantic.
  • Simon Miraudo @ Student Edge
    • Excerpt: The best joke in Long Shot is when you realise that the title is actually a reference to a gross, climactic bit of comedy. But the rest of it is still pretty great too.
  • Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: We ultimately care about Fred and Charlotte beyond their union. That’s rare in rom-coms.
  • [New] | Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: Working as both a smart and sweet film, Long Shot delivers a hilarious story matched by the talents of its cast.
  • Amir Siregar @ Amir at the Movies [Indonesian]
    • Excerpt: While ‘Long Shot’ sometimes seems a bit too ambitious – its politics get a bit muddled, those laughs come more often than not with Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron are ideally mismatched in one of the most likable Hollywood romantic comedies to come along in ages.
