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

I don't watch ANYTHING twice, but I might do it for this for the laughs
15 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

Going the Distance was amazingly cute. I kept expecting it to go tragically corny and predictable, and it did... But it did it in such a fresh and funny way I'd watch it again.

I did enjoy the Canadian angle, that they never diluted, or make a joke of being Canadian. And they kept me entertained throughout, even if there were only 1 or 2 flat out laughs. Everything was funny, and the few jokes that were over the top were in great context

Plus, the cameos were amazing. How they got great names to play bit parts in a straight to DVD movie was pretty cool.

It's not a must see. But it is something you should see.
