Special guest Abby Olcese joins us as we cast our ballots for Long Shot, a brand new political romantic comedy starring Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen. But that’s not all! School is out but the party is just getting started. We’re doing an early review for the upcoming bad teen comedy Booksmart, the first film directed by Olivia Wilde.

Jon’s puns are beginning to overtake him as a person.
Long Shot was a delight for me and my boyfriend. We saw it in a relatively empty theater, but it still got plenty of laughs and we had a fun conversation after about the weird politics in it. My boyfriend actually mentioned the Parks and Rec connections, which I do think is spot on. All in all, I’d give this one a B+
I buy Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron as a couple only because of this movie. Great casting, but my big complaint is that it’s too long of a movie for me to keep caring.
Probably the biggest surprise of the year for me so far. A few of the jokes really got to me, but I didn’t like how the side characters were never all that developed. I’d give it a hearty B.
