Starring: Seth Rogen, Charlize Theron, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Andy Serkis, June Diane Raphael, Bob Odenkirk, Alexander Skarsgård, Randall Park


Comedy directed by Jonathan Levine. The story follows Fred Flarsky (Seth Rogen) a gifted and free-spirited journalist with an affinity for trouble, and Charlotte Field (Charlize Theron), one of the most influential women in the world. 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. However, sparks fly as their unmistakable chemistry leads to a round-the-world romance and a series of unexpected and dangerous incidents.

Charlotte Field: You look really pretty too.


Fred Flarsky: No one’s ever looked at me like that before.


Lance: [to Fred] It’s Pretty Woman, but she’s Richard Gere and you’re Julia Roberts. You got destiny on your side.
