At the Movies - Going the Distance


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.

I'm totally not a movie person--my attention span is severely lacking--but you've piqued my curiosity about this one, because I feel like that scenario has been the freakin' STORY OF MY LIFE! ugh. Falling for someone right before one of us moves away, and then attempting (miserably) long distance . . . omg. Totally want to see it now, ha!

i really want to see this... me and my love have been doing this for more than a year and a half, and although not impossible it is definitely very hard. what helps you to keep on going is knowing it is not forever and that the person you are with is definitely worth the effort.

I haven't seen this movie yet, but it has piqued my interest. Given that my boyfriend and I have only lived in the same state for 1 of our 7 years together, I'm interested to see the movie's take on long distance. We make it work; it's hard, but doable.
