this is the ultimate boyfriend, girlfriend movie it concentrates on the male protagonist instead of the female one this creates delightful dialogue between the male and his friends. the jokes are light and extremely funny. The plot is simple but combined with a great sense of humor, it creates a very believable romance. I think this is one of the best romance movies i have every seen. and for the men out their it will make you laugh your ass off. I personally saw this movie purely because I was bored and in summer hardly anything good comes out.And it utterly surprised me. further more just <more>
see this movie IMDb is bitching that I don't have enough lines so your welcome to stop reading.
it went the distance; a pleasant surprise (by willsgb)
i went to see this yesterday with a friend, with the intention of enjoying 2 hours of cinema and then meeting up with more people and having an evening out; we were originally going to see 'the last exorcism' but went for this because of the lighter subject matter, although it was pertinent; i wasn't expecting much, but, perhaps because of this, i was hugely, pleasantly surprised. this is a warm, natural, consistently funny and highly enjoyable flick, and it set the scene for a great evening. no, i didn't meet someone like Garrett did, but from that outset, it became apparent <more>
that this wasn't the stereotypical romantic comedy that i'd assumed it would be; the dialogue and the humour is fresh, flowing and crucially, vitally vital, natural and realistic; this film reminded me a lot of 'the 40 year old virgin'; low on stupid set pieces which have their purpose but which a majority of comedies and 'rom-coms' become a procession of, and instead rich with more plausible, realistic, likable characters, plots and humour. the banter was quite lad-dish at times, sex talk, making fun of each other, silly discussions, weird stuff, the open door policy, the moustaches etc. it reminded me again of the aforementioned '40 year old virgin' and Smodcast and that kind of think; i'm a guy and i loved that, and judging by the laughter in the audience, it seemed to go down well with everyone else too, and there seems to have been a welcome shift towards that more open, more sarcastic, buddy kind of having a laugh, among the more traditional comedy types that are present here also. those worked well too; there was the awkward comedy when Erin introduces Garrett to her new friends at the gig and they don't find him funny and the dinner at Erin's sister's house, and there are the goofy set piece tanning and Erin and Garrett caught in the act at her sister's house scenes but they are all quite funny and blend together smoothly and expertly with the rest of the film; i can't think of any scene or comedy in this film which is at all out of place. as for the realism that i'm harping on about, it was so satisfying, for example, to see Garrett and Erin both exposed to situations where they could have cheated, and one even thinks that Garrett did for a moment when the girl from his label runs to the bathroom as Erin comes in after that fraught evening they'd had, and yet it's his hilarious roommate who'd brought her back, as is swiftly revealed, and neither did, because realistically, i don't think the majority of people jump into bed with someone else the moment a relationship hits a speed bump. it's equally gratifying when Garrett runs into the airport at the end of the 6 weeks, but instead of asking her to stay, simply professes the depth of his feelings and instead of splitting they cement the relationship as a long distance gig for the time being, and when Garrett asks Erin to move to New York at the end, but then tells her to take the job in San Fransisco i think and they break up near the end; it's so gratifying and genuine, and it makes the characters far more likable as a result.i gave this top marks here because it was such a surprisingly funny movie and a good time; i hope it does well because it's a real diamond in the rough. i can only name one actress from my knowledge of movies, Drew Barrymore, although i recognised others by face, but they all do a great job; Erin's sister is probably the most typically romantic comedy character, but even she is a welcome and likable lady, neurotically obsessed with hygiene and scarred by the sight of the hand-print, but a good sister to Erin; the band is given a good dose of plugging too, but who cares? i saw 'kick ass' a while back with some friends and had a great time at the cinema, and i think of that as a cinema film, and i'd say this is one too; if you're after a nice evening at the cinema with your friends - or with your lover - then i'd recommend this film. 10/10!
Fantastic film! It checks all the boxes that a romantic comedy should! Drew Barrymore was of course, amazing, and while it took me a minute or two to get used to seeing Justin Long playing a serious character I just happen to have seen him play a lot of strange or less serious roles he did a marvelous job of breaking the mold and was even quite the hottie in his role as leading man. I laughed, I cried, I recommend a watch!
Men - don't be put off just because it looks like a chick flick! (by jkeggen)
Just been to see this film before its official release and really, really enjoyed it. As the trailer suggests it's about a long distance relationship. The storyline is pretty straightforward. It's not the type of film that will have lots of complicated twists and turns, so in that context it's fairly predictable, but it's really well acted by the main characters, particularly Justin Long, Drew Barrymore and Christin Applegate. There are lots of laughs, and I mean laughing out loud, from both the men and the women in the audience. For me it's one of the funniest films <more>
I've seen that wasn't an out and out comedy. As the title of this review suggests, there's something for both men and women in this.
Going the Distance: Good for the Guys Too (by iumagoo2000)
This is one of the most real AND funny Rom/Com's that have come out of this stale city in quite some time. Often when one of these movies come out, hordes of women beg their beau's to come to the cinema to no avail. luckily for us, this is a fresh new look at an otherwise female driven genre. Going the Distance takes a look at long distance relationships from a REAL perspective. None of this Hollywood glitz. None of these fairy tale endings w/ friends who say and do what the producers hope the audience want to hear. It's like your watching a docu-drama about funny people. This <more>
movie showcases events how they would actually happen. People how they'd actually talk and relationships as unpredictable as they actually are. Another refreshing notion is how this movie is told, in the majority, from the male's perspective. Not entirely, but enough. It's told from a place where humor, booze and late night / post weekend b*tch sessions w/ close friends and/or relatives help weave together a romantic story in a funny way. It's just how life happens!I've seen this movie and can contest that it is the perfect concoction of humor, fun, romantic moments and hard R moments to make it a good fit for most couples. And guys, this will be a great way to go see a Romantic Comedy for your girl and get something out of it for yourself. GIVE IT A CHANCE, AND YOU'LL BE TELLING OTHERS TO DO THE SAME.
Going The Distance was far better than expected. I saw the trailer for this movie before going to see it and I thought it looked good, but far too often with this type of film, all the best bits are in the trailer. This was not the case with this film, it was consistently funny, well acted and very good in general. Drew Barrymore and Justin Long were very believable as a couple this may have something to do with them being together on off in real life . I thought that each actor played their part well, the friends of the main characters were all fantastic. Overall, this is well worth going <more>
to see and one of the funniest rom-coms I have seen in a long time.
A Nutshell Review: Going the Distance (by DICK STEEL)
The draw of Going the Distance will undoubtedly be its leading stars of Justin Long and Drew Barrymore, being an on-off-on real life couple and the premise of a long distance relationship will likely not be lost on these two. I'm not sure how many of you will subscribe to or are currently in a relationship where the distance put between you and your loved one means a meet up only once in a few months, whether that initial affection felt will be sufficient to sustain a commitment after the novelty wears off.And in this film, Geoff LaTulippe's story outlines most of the immediate <more>
pitfalls and concerns about long distance relationships that it'll likely scare you off from one anyhow. The perils here translate to not being able to enjoy what other couples in a "normal" relationship do, having to rely on technology to bridge that distance, and the raking up of phone bills to engage in decent conversation, or something kinkier. Then there's the fear of someone else cheating on you, since you're out of sight hence out of mind. I suppose love requires nurturing, and without being able to do so on a fairly constant basis, means an extraordinary amount of effort to make things work.But that's only the first part. See, I told you Going the Distance casts doubts despite its comedy at the right places to lift the film from its doom and gloom, nevermind if director Nanette Burstein manages to hook you in and convince you to root for the leads Erin Barrymore a soon to graduate journalist intern, and Garrett Long the record label employee told to babysit and promote some young kids band whom the record company is hoping to be the next Jonah Brothers. The bigger question here when the relationship stables and matures, is who's going to make the move to be with the other, permanently, as a sign of commitment.Ah, that C word. Moving means uprooting your life, forgoing your friends, family and frankly, career as well as you choose to be with someone who stands a significant place in your heart. Like Erin, this represents a risky leap of faith, albeit confusing too when the head and heart battles it out for rationality, that may end up with losing out on everything when the relationship sours, as Eric had experienced before, thus losing a part of her life as an undergraduate that she now has to play catch up. Somehow the premise of the film makes you contemplate whether you're likely to plunge into something like this, or if you're already in one, take stock at where you're at now.The film has Barrymore and Long to thank for, because when they're on song, and I suspect some scenes here inevitably has real emotions being expressed especially in many off the cuff banter that seems too natural to be staged or scripted. They make a cute couple, and play off each other really well in both scenes intended to tickle your funny bone, and the emotionally dramatic ones that call on them digging a little deeper to express their fears and desires. Co- stars Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis as best friends of Garrett also help to Unfortunately with this film being the typical Hollywood rom-com means the sticking to an expected feel good formula, as well as just scratching the surface of the issues it raises for the most parts.Such as the deliberate crafting of their occupations, where making fleeting and sweeping statements of the state of the music and newspaper industry wasn't minced, and you get periodic reminders of it. It makes passing remarks on the eventual demise of newspapers and hence the massive layoffs due to the advent of the blog, and how record labels lament not making a lot of money, when they're heavily investing in crap that can be manufactured off an assembly line, rather than to put their weight behind more worthy, talented acts. The Boxer Rebellion, featured in the film, will be a band that I will checking out real soon as part of the movie's eclectic soundtrack.
Going the Distance is a very enjoyable honest romantic comedy starring Drew Barrymore and Justin Long (by tavm)
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. With fine supporting turns from Jim Gaffigan, Jason Sudeikis, and Christina Applegate, not to mention the <more>
leads, I highly recommend Going the Distance. P.S. Nice use of some classic '80s songs like Berlin's "Take My Breath Away" or Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes' "I've Had the Time of My Life".
Film was phenomenal! A lot more fun than I would have imagined. Of course, Long & Barrymore are an on-again/off-again real life couple, but that doesn't always parlay well into on-screen chemistry. From the scene where they first meet, you can see the chemistry there and it really works for the film. Long's friends, including Sudekis, are a hoot and Applegate, as Drew's sister, round out the cast with some great back-up comedy. There were many laugh out loud moments from myself and the screening audience when it concerned the sex talk, and the laughter lasted so long you <more>
couldn't even hear the next lines of any of the characters. While not the same subject matter, it had the feel of this decade's "Chasing Amy" which is *certainly* not an insult . The soundtrack, including a band featured in the context of the film Boxer Rebellion really adds to the fun, and I even went out and bought Boxer Rebellion's latest album *immediately* after leaving the theatre! Super enjoyable. As long as you're not a prude when it comes to sex-talk, then you should thoroughly enjoy this movie.
