Barrymore carries the movie on a cloud of lusty giggles and F-bombs.

If you've ever had an awkward sexual moment in your life (admit it, you have), this is the movie for you. If you've ever believed there can't be love without the comedy, this is the movie for you.

Barrymore comfortably slips into more filthy talk and situations while bringing her innate sweetness and relatability.

You sort of wind up rooting for them in spite of their characters being somewhat knuckleheadish.

Going the Distance is concocted from a familiar formula. It just happens to be a really good example of what can be done with it.

Much like Drew Barrymore, [this film] is so intent on being cutesy and bubbly that it's nauseating...
December 20, 2010
...the pervasively affable atmosphere [is] heightened by the palpable chemistry between Long and Barrymore's respective characters.

The combination of a very funny and a little bit raunchy rom-com with the plethora of extras make the package a must to rent or buy.

December 2, 2010
Not a great film, but in a time when most romantic comedies are trite and predictable, this one at least tries to deal with an actual relationship hurdle.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

...being different doesn't necessarily mean being better.

Sex, drugs and F-bombs on the first date...ah, modern romance...

An original film that gets it right when it comes to exploiting both love and laughs.

Going the Distance features the graduation of Justin Long from gawky supporting actor to gawky lead actor, and Drew Barrymore from cutesy rom-com star to cutesy rom-com star with a filthy mouth.

Burstein is a documentarian by training, and she milks an unforced honesty from the story.

Foul-mouthed and funny, 'Going the Distance' is a youthful romance for grownups.

Drew Barrymore and her boy toy try going bicoastal

What are we doing watching this manically dreary, physically nauseating date movie from hell?
September 16, 2010
If you're looking for a fun date movie with realistic characters you can genuinely root for, see this film. Best rom-com of the year? Quite likely.

Feels too much like a shrugging shuffle around the bases. Scenes are overscored, there are more references to dicks than in a Judd Apatow boxset, and the story's too episodic, with little tension other than will-they-stay-together?
