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

This movie is actually damn funny and sexy
12 August 2004 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

I've seen Going the Distance and I was pleasantly surprised. The jokes are fresh and funny. The girls are damn hot. There's plenty of nudity and sex. I say kudos to Canada for making a movie that could compete with the commercial Hollywood machine that pumps out American Pies and Without a Paddles. I'm sick of seeing sad, pretentious Canadian movies about terminally ill pregnant lesbians. Making movies is just as much a business as it is an art. It's nice to see this country try to make a buck. Sex and comedy sells, and this movie has plenty of both. This movie comes from the company that did Last Wedding and Punch, both very classy, artsy films. So now they're trying their hand at something else. I say good for them, and as a Canadian, I will support them with my ten dollars.
