Going the Distance Review

DoBlu
12 December 2010
  • Excerpt: You could probably pinpoint the exact minute the inevitable break-up between Erin (Drew Barrymore) and Garrett (Justin Long) will occur. Going the Distance is just that formulaic and predictable. It’s not dead in the water though, which is actually quite a surprise.

  • Excerpt: The Film The rom-com genre has very few tricks left in the bag. It's usually the same old story with the same old ending. One thing that Going the Distance has going for it is that the movie does try to shake things up along the way.

Going the Distance (2010)

  • Conclusion: You know the drill. Romantic comedies are a dime a dozen, and each one appeals to some more than others. I genuinely liked Going the Distance , often in spite of its flaws. Am I suggesting you will too? Not at all. Evasive, I know.

Going the Distance

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: 'Going the Distance' falters under the weight of its exceedingly awkward R rated humor that just doesn't feel like it belongs in this movie. Throw in the fact that the entire film is a cut-and-paste romantic comedy that you've seen a thousand times before and there's just no reason to see it.

  • Excerpt: Erin's wry wit and unfiltered frankness charm newly single Garrett over beer, bar trivia and breakfast the next morning. Their chemistry sparks a full-fledged summer fling, but neither expects it to last once Erin heads home to San Francisco and Garrett stays behind for his job in New York City.

  • Excerpt: Early in Going the Distance you can tell there's something different going on here. A female character (Drew Barrymore's Erin) is frustrated at work, and rather than crying about it with girlfriends over coffee or ice cream, she hightails it to the bar, downs a few beers, and sets out to beat her...

  • Excerpt: It's funny, I was just remarking to a friend the other day that more romantic comedies should make Hitler/Zyklon B references. "Going the Distance," GET OUT OF MY HEAD! Of course, it's a brief joke in a film of eternal stupidity, but the fact that the director decided to leave in the improvised line...

  • Summary: This refreshingly concept-free romantic comedy gets off to a roaring start, but can't quite keep up the momentum.

Going The Distance

AV Club
2 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Let it never be said that Going The Distance doesn’t play by the romantic-comedy rules: It stars Drew Barrymore, the undisputed queen of the genre, and features such stock elements as a scruffy best friend (two of them, in fact, in Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis) on the man’s side, the disapproving...
