It's timelier and a little more honest than most romantic comedies, but Drew Barrymore and Justin Long's screen chemistry doesn't make up for Going the Distance's overall flatness.

A long haul.
What's both refreshing and problematic is that there's no emotional imbalance between boy and girl: their feelings are mutual and the obstacle is purely geographical.
The film's constant raunch factor balances out its romantic center in a way that will likely surprise and please many.
Acknowledges both the difficulty and the comic potential of the arrangement, and does so with enough insight and charm to make you wonder why frequent-flier love is not a more popular theme in romantic comedies.
It's filthy, funny and kind of sweet, if not quite up to the level of Judd Apatow's oeuvre in the burgeoning field of R-rated comedies with heart.
Let's be honest: any flaws the film has are over shadowed by the sheer adorableness of the two leads.
Unfortunately, Going the Distance doesn't take audiences far enough.
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.
Omg..hysterical movie!! A must see.
Such a cute romantic comedy :) Justin Long & Drew Barrymore were just amazing & Christina Applegate was great as Drew Barrymore's sister & Charlie Day & Jason Sudeikis were great as Justin Long's best friends. Just a great movie about love & how by going the distance your love will survive :) Just watch this adorable film :) You won't regret it! :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
A young newspaper reporter and a music talent scout attempt to make a bi-coastal relationship work.
I think that it is difficult to render the pressures of a long-distance relationship without resorting to what Super Reviewer Alice Shen calls "go-to distance conflicts." As a former victim of a long distance relationship, I can attest to the fact that much of the conflict is internal and doesn't lend itself to film. But at the same time, I can't blame the film for trying.
Eventually what the film amounts to is a solid romantic comedy. The characters' relationship develops and degrades all in accordance with the formula that has been tried and true. There is an appropriate balance of pathos and comedy with some decent performances from Drew Barrymore and Justin Long. These people won't stay with you for very long, but it's nice knowing them for the film's ninety-seven minutes.
Overall, this is a fine film but nothing to write home about.
The trailer made it out to be funnier than it was, but it was still 'alright' but not great! It was sort of predictable too.
