Watch it on Amazon Prime video The Long Shot (2019) Seth Rogen one screw-ups schlubby that winds played to count with an unattainable beauty, powerful and intelligent too often. The lack of realism is part of the joke, but also part of a laborious model bromance films in which his men with women, even though they were rather hang out with their male comrades, and the women are men in front of the correct end of the film. The Longshot takes this concept to its most radical conclusion: Charlize Theron plays a presidential candidate, dates … well, Seth Rogen with a weed pen.
