Going the Distance : A Movie Review

September 2, 2010

One problem with being a devoted Drew Barrymore fan is that I.need.to.effin.watch.every.DrewBarrymore.movie. It is sickening! But oh well, being the closet rom-com fan that I am, I always end up enjoying them.

Justin Long and Drew Barrymore team up for the most anticipated romantic comedy, Going the Distance. The Warner Bros. release is directed by Nanette Burstein and also stars Christina ApplegateCharlie DayRon LivingstonJason Sudeikis, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen.

The story revolves around Long’s character, Garrett who is not really into commitment and the entire playing field called meeting women. He meets Barrymore’s character, Erin in a bar. Sparks fly and they became a couple in an instant. With a catch: Erin reveals that she’s only in town for the summer and will be returning to grad school in San Francisco in six weeks (aka, she doesn’t want anything serious). Naturally, it gets serious, and they give a long distance relationship a shot.

The movie did well in showing the real deal into the idea of a long distance relationship. The paranoia, the ups and downs are portrayed well with a good balance of entertainment and funny antics on the side.

The off-screen couple Barrymore and Long also have good chemistry. Which is a great plus in making this movie a success.

Overall, if you are into good, clean, fun and uh, romantic comedies then you will definitely like this movie.
