Unemployed journalist Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen) gets a new gig when he's hired as a speechwriter for Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron), U.S. Secretary of State, presidential candidate ... and Fred's onetime babysitter and unrequited crush. Despite their vast differences, they begin to hit it off and start dating. But will the less-than-sophisticated Fred prove to be too big a liability to Charlotte's campaign?

Would recommend this movie. A lot of swearing but it’s good if you like Seth and Charlize as actors. Not a bad film.

After seeing the real thing happening in the states recently, we had absolutely no desire to watch this, even if it is humorous. We didn’t wait to find out.

I was surprised by how much I liked this. I'm normally not a Seth Rogen fan. He seems to play the same character in almost everything. He was likeable in this one though. Having an exquisitely beautiful, clever and extremely high level politician played by Charlize Theron hiring scruffy journalist like Seth Rogen to be a speechwriter for her and then for them to fall in love seemed pretty implausible. But, in the movie, it made sense. He made her laugh and she could be herself with him. I hated the stupid obligatory drug scene (of course, it's a Seth Rogen movie) and I would have preferred less crude language and unfunny raunchiness, but the rest of it was actually a pretty funny and sweet romantic comedy. Overall surprisingly enjoyable.

Watch if you are a Seth Rogan or Charlize Theron fan.

Just a fun funny movie to watch. Plot is fairly simple and fairly predictable, but acting and directing were great. A little too much swearing all of a sudden, but overall a really enjoyable movie. Some really funny moments and good versions of two world leaders.

It was entertaining even if there were a lot of F "bombs". But what a concept that a TV actor would become a President and sell out the environment for money.

I should have known anything with Seth Rogen was going to be raunchy. Hundreds of "F" bombs by both women and men. Rogen and Theron co-produced this debacle. A poor example of a Secretary of State's character. Way to long.

I tried to watch it but kept forwarding through it. Weak dumb story I should tell you how it ends then you wont be tempted to wast your time watching it. I would say one of the worst shows I have seen during the past couple of years.

***Too many unnecessary and meaningless F-bombs***
I don't know what the fxck is going on in this country, man! Every day I turn on the TV, and I see these fzcking freaks marching for their rights! What about our rights? This is our time to show the world that we are not just an online movement! We're growing physically! This is our time to assert ourselves as the true voice of America! Yes, let's do that!
===
She has no moral compass. She's working with fxcking Democrats one day,
Republicans the next fucking day.
-I mean, what's wrong with working with Democrats and Republicans?
That's... That's the whole country.
Uh, yeah, except fxck Republicans, I guess is the problem with that.
-Speaking as an American, shouldn't you see both sides?
Yeah. I see one side's fxcking wrong.
===
I'm a racist, you're a Republican, I don't know what the fxck's going on.

Look, I can't believe I have to say this, but just so you know, there's no way the two of you work.
-Why would you say that? You don't know that.
The public will never accept the two of you together, so neither will she.
===
You know when you see something, and it just looks right. Like a Kangol hat on Samuel L. Jackson.
===
So we asked a thousand constituents how they would feel... if, say, Princess Di... if she were to start dating Guy Fieri.
-I don't even know who that is.
They don't like that.
- Yeah.
Or Kate Middleton were to start dating Danny DeVito.
- I see where you're going with this.
Pretty negative reaction. Or if Jennifer Lawrence were to start dating this potato in a teal windbreaker. They would be very upset.

But the optics of you and Fred will make a presidential run very challenging.
-Fred is a journalist.
Who's written some extremely fxcked-up stuff.
-No. That's exposed some really fxcked-up stuff.
And I just want to know for myself, you're comfortable with putting everything on the line for a hookup?
===
I want you to be president. For the sake of the future of our country. Look, there's another option. There's a guy who works for the Secret Service whose job it is to handle the mistresses...
-Maggie. You're gonna have to stop.
And there are a series of tunnels in the White House that Woodrow Wilson...
- That's enough. Fred is not an idea that I'm floating by you for your approval.
And you're getting very close to crossing a line.
