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. I like how the story did not go for exaggeration and unrealistic scenes but was able to give the exact humor to every situation. I do not like Justin Long and Drew Barrymore together, but they actually made the team up worked!

to be honest,when i started watching this,i thought it was going to be one of those wannabe romantic comedies.but you know what,this movie was not that bad at all.Justin long and Drew barrymore feel real,they actually feel like people who would be in love.and of course the funny friends of justin long's character,the always funny Charlie Day and funny Jason Sedikis.the film to me is really great.yeah it has many flause,and at times it could feel a little too boring.but one things for sure,this movie is both funny and heartwarming.the characters feel real and fun.good movie,but it won't be for everyone.but good movie.

Going the Distance (2010)

"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!) The two start a casual relationship knowing it will only last 6 weeks until her internship ends and she has to get back to San Francisco.

Fast forward six weeks Garret and Erin realize that they want more, and what follows is a romantic comedy chronicling the problems they encounter while trying to conduct a long distance love affair. Determined to keep the romance alive they try everything making full use of the benefits o...

Participating

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. The hardships and suspicions that would naturally come of a long-distance relationship seem to be manifest in a very real way, often leaving the two central characters in tears. The ideals of workplace goals also is well-lit, offering the question, is a career more important as a dream or as a reality? A wonderfully bright adult love story, "Going the Distance" was a treat to watch and experience.

Buy the soundtrack, skip the movie

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. Not to mention I don't know if they were trying to do this but she looks very old here, way beyond her years and the way that I have seen her look in press photos and other movies from around the same time. Where as Justin Long looks like a teenager. This might be a case of the worst makeup artist on a movie ever for what they did to poor Drew,...
