Long Shot (out May 2) is the story of a woman (Charlie Theron) in line to be the next U.S. President who hires a childhood acquaintance (Seth Rogen) to help give her speeches a little colour and humour. 1990s film such as Bulworth and The American President covered this material in a more convincing manner. There are a few laughs here but both the politics and the romance don't feel authentic. Grade: B-.
