Long Shot

I probably wouldn’t have seen Long Shot if it wasn’t for Mother’s Day. My mom wanted to see it which meant I could see a movie and see my mother all in one swoop. How could I deny that? I must say, I was surprised by the movie. It was better than I thought.

At first, I was judging the movie. It seemed to have a certain policitacl slant to it, which was what I feared. Not that I am looking for a particular one, I don’t like when a piece of art favors one or the other too heavily. But to my surprise, the movie ended up wrapping with a unique perspective you don’t hear about much today. It turned out, closed mindedness and leaning towards one side too heavily became the root of the problem for this movie. That’s something I can get on board with.

With a mix of politics and comedy, this was a movie I would recommend to others. Especially if they are fans of Seth Rogen, it has his classic comedy style but in a new setting we haven’t seen him in.

I would give this a 4/5.
