What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Long Shot is a romantic comedy starring Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen. When free-spirited goofball/political journalist Fred Flarsky (Rogen) runs into his former babysitter/first crush, Charlotte Field (Theron), he's surprised she even looks his way. After all, she's now the Secretary of State and planning a presidential run. But thanks to Fred's writing talent and charm, Charlotte decides to hire him as a speechwriter, despite her advisors' advice. Over several weeks, Fred follows Charlotte as she travels the globe as one of the world's most powerful diplomats. Surprisingly to everyone around them, sparks fly between these two polar opposites, despite the fact that Fred's impulsive nature and habit of getting into trouble could destroy Charlotte's political career. Expect plenty of mature content, including drug use, peril, explosions, and sexy stuff. This will likely be best for teens and up.
