  • Summary: Garrett and Erin start their relationship without any expectation until Erin has to go back to San Francisco and leave Garrett in New York. Instead of dropping their relationship, the two decided to continue with a long-distance relationship. *** This movie from a nutshell seemed to promise nothing any better than what it really was. I cannot pin point what make this movie worked but I must say I liked it when I saw it.

  • Excerpt: "Maya! Statue!" Drew Barrymore is Erin, a lonely journalist who encounters Garrett (Justin Long), a talent scout for a record company, on the night he is drowning his sorrows after splitting up with his girlfriend. (There is a lesson in here guys: When your girl friend says she does not want a gift for her birthday, she definitely WANTS a gift for her birthday!

  • Excerpt: An ultra-hip modern day chick-flick, "Going the Distance" was not as wretched as I originally assumed it would be. Justin Long and Drew Barrymore have a great amount of rapport together on screen, despite the age difference, and the chemistry just seems to work. The comedy was very well done, but not quite as well done as the drama side of the story.

Buy the soundtrack, skip the movie

  • Excerpt: Passable but mediocre. While I usually love Drew Barrymore she was dreadful here. It's clear they were going for the Judd Apatow approach of raunchy as funny but it does not work here at all. I don't pretend to know what an actress like Drew Barrymore is actually like but her attempt at being raunchy just comes off as extremely forced, as if she's actively trying to change her image and it just doesn't work, she can't pull of this character at all.

A forgettable and plain romantic comedy

Gordon-11, IMDb

  • Summary: This film is about a couple surviving the hardships of a long distance relationship. "Going the Distance" maybe a realistic look at the hardships of a long distance relationship. It tells the pains of a long distance relationship in much detail, such as trust issues, unclear future prospects of being together physically, and whether to pursue love at the expense of career due to relocation. Maybe "Going the Distance" is just too realistic, that I find it rather plain.

Profanity and jokes covering up poor writing, but it's still a romantic comedy

  • Summary: "Going the Distance" is just a romantic comedy, but an adequate one. Justin Long and Drew Barrymore have real chemistry, making it seem fairly romantic, and Long and his friends are actually very funny men, making the film come across as more funny and less not-funny. I generally really like films picking simple stories and just telling them straight. For the most part, this film did that.

Going the Distance is a very enjoyable honest romantic comedy starring Drew Barrymore and Justin Long

  • Summary: Just watched this romantic comedy starring sometime off-screen couple Drew Barrymore and Justin Long. She's an aspiring reporter and he's a record company executive who's forced to guide crappy musical acts for his label. They're forced into a long distance relationship due to unforeseen circumstances. That's all I'll say of the story and just say that this was quite both a ribaldry hilarious and honestly touching movie that seem to ring true most of the time.

It's Well Worth Going to Going the Distance

  • Summary: Erin (Drew Barrymore) is getting a late start on her dreams. At 31, she's finally finishing college with an internship at a New York newspaper. With just six weeks to go before returning to San Francisco to complete her education, she meets Garrett (Justin Long) over a classic game of Centipede. With similar quirky senses of humor and more than a little disarming honesty, the two quickly pair up.
