Can long distance relationships really work?
In Going the Distance, Erin (Drew Barrymore) meets Garrett (Justin Long) over a beer and they hit it off. But Erin is moving away in couple of months, so they agree to keep it casual. A totally uncomplicated fun summer fling. Too bad they end up falling in love, which of course complicates things. So when Erin moves, they decide to stay together and do the long distance thing. But is that really possible? Or are they totally fooling themselves?
You know how sometimes you see the preview for a movie, and the funny parts are hilarious, so you go see the movie only to find out that the only funny parts were in the preview? Well, Going is not like that at all. This was one of the funniest chick flicks I've seen in a long time. Barrymore and Long have great chemistry (probably because they used to date), and their quirky slightly awkward personalities really shine in the dialogue and humor of this romantic comedy. So, ladies, if you're fans of the chick flick genre, then leave the boys at home this weekend, and check out Going. I will definitely be buying this one when it comes out on DVD.
