Editors Note
Note Drew Barrymore and Justin Long star in this romantic comedy about a long-distance romance that may be worth fighting for. Garrett (Long) is still nursing the wounds from a recent breakup when he meets Erin (Barrymore), an unflinchingly honest girl with a big talent for bar trivia. Hitting it off immediately, the pair spend a romantic summer together in New York City. It was supposed to be a summer fling, but as fall approaches and Erin returns to San Francisco, the spark is still there. Subsequently dividing his days between working and hitting the bars with best friends Box (Jason Sudeikis) and Dan (Charlie Day), Garrett drops everything whenever Erin calls. The more Garrett's phone rings, the more his pals begin to suspect that their drinking buddy is taking the relationship a little too seriously. And they're not the only ones; Erin's sister, Corrine (Christina Applegate), is keen to ensure that her smitten sibling doesn't repeat the mistakes of her past, and she makes no attempts to sugarcoat the fact that she disapproves of the coast-to-coast romance. But the heart wants what the heart wants, and as the texting becomes more intense, both Garrett and Erin start to suspect that their summer fling may just be the real thing.
A.V. Club "[I]t's perceptive about the problems of young people torn between pursuing love or their nascent career ambitions, and the witty script, by first-timer Geoff LaTulippe, is spiked with refreshing profanity." -- Grade: B 09/02/2010
Box Office 4 stars out of 5 -- "GOING THE DISTANCE is a winner...as enormously appealing as the couple at its center." 08/27/2010
Los Angeles Times "[S]creenwriter Geoff LaTulippe's story of a recession-era long-distance relationship and its attendant hurdles takes its characters seriously." 09/03/2010
New York Times "[I]t has enough honesty and charm to set it apart..." 09/02/2010
Entertainment Weekly "GOING THE DISTANCE is a light and tasty morsel of a romantic comedy in which two smart, funny, and basically sweet people try to conduct a cross-country relationship." -- Grade: B 09/10/2010
Sight and Sound "[T]he most convincing moments between real-life lovers Barrymore and Long are their tiffs....It's canny casting..." 11/01/2010
Variety "[Long and Barrymore] achieve a pleasant, sparky rapport, his quick wit finding a nice complement in her good-natured spaciness..." 09/19/2010
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a worthy addition to the genre canon, with credit largely due to the support cast of Charlie Day and SNL's Jason Sudeikis." 03/01/2011
