Violet is a shy teenager who dreams of escaping her small town and pursuing her passion to sing. With the help of an unlikely mentor, she enters a local singing competition that will test her integrity, talent and ambition. Driven by a pop-fueled soundtrack, Teen Spirit is a visceral and stylish spin on the Cinderella story.
Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen) is a gifted and free-spirited journalist with an affinity for trouble. Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron) is one of the most influential women in the world. Smart, sophisticated, and accomplished, she's a powerhouse diplomat with a talent for...well, mostly everything. The two have nothing in common, except that she was his babysitter and childhood crush. When Fred unexpectedly reconnects with Charlotte, he charms her with his self-deprecating humor and his memories of her youthful idealism. As she prepares to make a run for the Presidency, Charlotte impulsively hires Fred as her speechwriter, much to the dismay of her trusted advisors. A fish out of water on Charlotte's elite team, Fred is unprepared for her glamourous lifestyle in the limelight. However, sparks fly as their unmistakable chemistry leads to a round-the-world romance and a series of unexpected and dangerous incidents.

After Fred awakens Charlotte from her "micro-nap", they discuss the jokes he has written for her speech. During the conversation, Fred puts his laptop on Charlotte's desk. As the scene ends, Fred leaves the room without the laptop in his hands (as he was directed to make changes to the speech, he would need his laptop for that work). See more »

Long Shot is another win for both Charlize and Seth. They prove to be a charming underdog couple that you want to route for. The way they got together played true to real life. Believe it or not these two have chemistry and I really enjoyed watching them together. Charlize is the funniest I've ever seen her as a surprisingly down to earth Secretary of State. Seth Rogan is the most charming I've ever seen him. They really use these actors strengths that probably don't get featured too often in their other films. The movie starts off a bit slow but once the two characters come together it really shines! It doesn't take the same roads as most romantic comedies do and will surprise you. I hope you all enjoy this movie. I highly recommend.
