A feelgood breeze kept fresh by winning performances, it's worth going the extra mile for.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 8, 2010
Watchable romcom, enlivened by a frequently funny script and strong comic performances from a superb cast, though the script can't quite resolve the problems raised by real life long-distance relationships...

A raunchy rom-com that is surprisingly authentic in its emotions and hilariously obscene.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
September 7, 2010
Sometimes it's sweet, sometimes it's sappy, sometimes it's unbelievably raunchy and occasionally it's rather witty, but none of it melds together particularly well. Often, it's like watching five different movies crammed into one.

The movie doesn't know whether it wants to be sweet or dirty - Nora Ephron or Judd Apatow
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Enjoyable, but good, not great.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
September 6, 2010
A charming, but ultimately forgettable romantic comedy. At least this time, there's no sperm donor involved.

Drew Barrymore and Christina Applegate are tremendously appealing: it's not long before you're wishing Going the Distance was about them.
September 4, 2010
...it doesn't treat its female lead as if she's an idiot whose professional success is simply proof how inadequate she is without a man.

September 4, 2010
This is the best of the romantic comedy genre since '(500) Days of Summer.'
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10
September 4, 2010
Whoever thought they could mix gross toilet-humor and endless vulgarity with romance has done a big injustice to these otherwise likeable lead stars.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

It might not be particularly original, but this rom-com at least takes a fresh approach to the formula.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
September 3, 2010
An uneven, painfully contrived and uninspired romantic comedy that's low on laughs and chemistry while high on awkward dirty talk and unnecessary foul language.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.90/10

'Going the Distance' is an occasionally diverting look at long-distance relationships that takes a few too many shortcuts.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
September 3, 2010
a crass excuse for a film

Edgy Barrymore romcom has lots of sex, language.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 3, 2010
I've seen so many romantic comedies over the years it's nice to find one that refuses to bow to conventions while still staying true to the genre in which it inhabits.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

As a riotous comedy, Distance falls short, but it still racks up several miles for sweetness.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
September 3, 2010
Romcom - like everything else in this text-happy society - is two words shortened and bonded together. If only the movie was chopped and shortened.

All the bases seem to be covered, but none of them are particularly funny. At best you'll smile out loud.
