Unfortunately, Going the Distance doesn't take audiences far enough.
Full Review | Original Score: D
August 29, 2010
Evokes the sensation of witnessing a couple who think everything the other person does is superlatively amusing, but are insufferable to all around them.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 1, 2010
The surprisingly vulgar humor is at odds with the story's sweetness, and smacks of trying too hard.

September 1, 2010
It doesn't have the emotion or tenderness of Burstein's American Teen, and where the LA Times predicted the next (500) Days Of Summer, we're left instead with a bog-standard chick-flick, as light and superficial as you'd usually expect.

Absolutely infuriating. The worst movie of the year.

A podcast with the writer of Going the Distance, Geoff LaTulippe.
September 3, 2010
It's heartless and soulless, flimsy and formulaic.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
August 27, 2010
The funny stuff is canceled out by too many story-intensive stretches, which dispense with the humor and make the movie feel as long as Braveheart.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

The film has its share of laughs -- by my count, seven titters and three chuckles.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
September 20, 2010
What are we doing watching this manically dreary, physically nauseating date movie from hell?
September 3, 2010
(This) funny-but-forgettable movie loses its way somewhere between stowing the carry-on and returning the tray tables to the locked position.

September 2, 2010
If you've no frequent-flier miles, there's little need to go the distance with this bumpy ride.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
September 3, 2010
A rom-combo of frat boy humor, generic romance and career angst, underscoring a sex commuter comedy with lovers flying across the country for visits. All that's missing is some snakes on a plane.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
August 19, 2010
It's hard to imagine any romantic comedy going wrong in so many different ways.
August 24, 2010
This potentially thoughtful, poignant relationship film quickly loses its nerve.
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
September 3, 2010
The laughs kept me involved in Going the Distance, but after I left the theater, it occurred to me that this slight comedy hadn't gone very far at all.

Nanette Burstein reminds us she was previously a director of documentaries by occasionally shooting with a handheld camera for no discernible reason.
September 1, 2010
Garrett and Erin meet cute over a game of Centipede, though their subsequent long-distance romance breeds mainly a desire to see them and their friends suffer Human Centipede-style torment.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
September 2, 2010
Going the Distance, a new romantic comedy from doco director Nannette Burstein, is pretty much wall to wall with dirty talk, but it doesn't seem to have a political or social point to make; which makes it feel a little empty.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
