My Thoughts: Normally, Drew Barrymore sparkles in romantic comedies and I had incredibly high expectations of this (the trailer did make it look alot funnier than it actually is). While there are a few "laugh out loud" moments, I didn't feel any real "spark" or "chemistry" between the two characters, which is odd being that Drew Barrymore and Justin Long were romantically involved at the time (just as their characters are). The storyline is so-so, when the comedy does come it feels forced or pointless, and the film just feels drawn out and sub-par in general leaving very little left to be interested in. I forced myself to watch this until the end but I really didn't get a feel or care about what happened to either character.

The Plot: Garrett & Erin meet by chance in a bar (fighting over an arcade machine) and have a brief relationship on the understanding that they will depart when Erin finishes her New York internship at a newspaper and moves back to San Francisco. As time quickly moves on, the two begin to catch feelings for each other leaving them both in awkward situations. Garrett is desperate for promotion in his New York based music-industry job while Erin has just finished spending the last few years of her life pulling herself back on track after previously having given up her dreams for a relationship.

Erin, determined that she will not give up her dreams a second-time around for love, moves back to San Francisco under the apprehension that there may be a New York job opening for her soon and turns to waitressing and living with her older sister in the meantime until she can find a way to balance both love and career. Garrett on the other hand is suffering at the hands of his first real relationship made only much harder by having to travel the distance to b with a girl he has fallen head over heels for.

Is it just me, or is Hollywood currently churning out WAY too many films of this genre?
I seem to see Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Katherine Heigel, and here, Drew Barrymore in an endless romantic comedy cycle.

'Going the Distance' has a little more going for it, delivered mainly by the two leads and a funny (but quite profane in parts) script.

Erin (Drew Barrymore) is a 31 year old woman who is having trouble pacing her life, she is still in grad school and she has recently got a job as a summer intern in a newspaper in New York. While out with a friend at a bar she meets Garrett (Justin Long) over a game. The two then drink together and end up at his place and they have sex while (bizzarely) Garrett's roommate Dan DJed their hook up. The next morning Erin is anxious to leave but Garrett asks her to have breakfast with him and she agrees. She then tells him that she is only in New York for 6 weeks and is not looking for a relationship and he agrees with her stating that he had just got out of one and wants this to be casual.

Erin and Garrett start having a 'casual' fling but it starts to get deeper for them. They both continue with their fling, however when the six weeks are up they find it difficult to let go. After Garrett drives Erin to the airport they say goodbye, but just as Erin is about to leave Garrett runs after her and tells her that he is crazy about her and wants to have a long distance relationship with her. She agrees.

Over the next couple of months Erin and Garrett spend all their free time texting and calling one another trying to work out times when one of them can fly in, trying really hard to make things work, ergo the title.

I have been on a bit of a rom-com movie phase of late, and have been largely disappointed. 'Going the Distance' however is a exception, it's a good, original story, and the perfect balance of romance and comedy. This is one for the guys as well, don't worry.

Beautiful young Erin (Drew Barrymore) is temporally staying in New York for the summer, where she meets quirky Garett (Justin Long) at a bar and they hit it off straight away. She confesses from the start that this romance that blossoms will be short-lived, and Garett, who has recently split up with a girl, is fine with this. The pair become inseparable, and when Erin has to travel back to San Francisco, Garett realises that he is too much in love with her to let this brief fling pass him by. She agrees, and the two try to they keep their love alive between New York and San Francisco in a long distance relationship.

'Going the Distance' entertained me from start to finish. It's funny, charming and seriously touching. This is one rom-com that I would certainly watch again, and it left me with a good feeling towards the end.

Long distance relationships never work do they? Except they do. It's just that living so far apart is such a handy excuse for people to split up. `Going the Distance' is all about living and loving from afar as Garret (Justin Long) and Erin (Drew Barrymore) have a whirlwind romance only for Erin to get a job on the other coast of America. Rather than split up, they decide to continue dating, but can it last?

I did not know what to expect from `Going' as both Long and Barrymore are slightly offbeat actors who I would not expect to appear in a straight forward romantic comedy. On the surface the film has all the trappings of the Rom Com, down to the fact you pretty much know what is going to happen from early on. However, there is a slightly leftfield sensibility that makes it more interesting than just this. The film does not go as far as `500 Days of Summer', but it certainly takes on a quirky personality in keeping with the cast. Long and Barrymore are great as a couple of early 30 somethings who have not really launched into life yet. They seem well suited for one another and the chemistry is real (they dated for a while).

Another tradition that all rom coms have is the friend network around the leads. In `Going' these roles are particularly well cast; Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis as Garrett's bachelor buddies and Christina Applegate as Erin's sister. They, along with Long and Barrymore's chemistry, lift the film above the dross. This is not to say the film is perfect, it is still paint by numbers rom com, just one that is actually fun to watch.

Being set on both the West and East coast of America makes this one comedy that actually benefits from HD as the cities look great. The extras are fluff pieces, including an interview with all the cast that is not particularly in-depth.
