Storyline

He may have just graduated but Nick has it all figured out - marriage, a lucrative career and a totally different lifestyle from that of his West Coast hippy parents. When he discovers that his future wife may be falling prey to a powerful and oversexed music producer, Nick is determined to fly to Toronto to win her back. Lifelong buds and dedicated surfers Tyler and Dime have other ideas for their staid best friend - the road trip adventure of his life. With only three days to make it to the MuchMusic Video Awards, the unlikely road warriors head off. Two sexy hitchhikers, Sasha and Jill, complicate matters and a series of accidents, orchestrated by a malevolent stranger, sabotage the trip turning Nick's future plans upside down. Written by Brad

Tyler: Whatever you're doing back there, just... be careful because I bruise easy.
Karma: What do you think, Claire? Should we use the baby carrot or the Excalibur?
Tyler: Oh, baby carrot. Baby carrot.
Claire: Gosh, honey, it looks like we left the carrot at home. Too bad. So very, very sad. Load me up.

What a great comedy!
27 June 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is the living proof that you CAN make a good comedy without Jason Biggs or Freddy Prince Jr (Not that I have anything against them, they're both very talented and funny). The movie is funny, simple and doesn't take itself too seriously which is all we need when watching this type of movie. All the characters have that "little something special" which bring colors and diversity to the movie, and they're all there: the "romantic hunk", the "Pot-Smoking Sidekick", the "muscled-up macho", the "Irresistible Virgin" and much more. Since the final takes place during the "Much Music Video Award", you get the chance to see two of Canada's most popular artists; Avril Lavigne and Swollen Members".

In overall, "Going the Distance" stands in the "American Pie/Road Trip/Tomcats" league, you won't be disappointed...
