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

[after meeting two older cowgirl women in their motel's bar, they both invite Tyler to their room. They then tell him to lie down and surprise him by tying him up to the bed]
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.

A great country to live in...
8 September 2004 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

My friends and I were torn between Without a Paddle with the many known actors and Going the Distance a Canadian production with few people that we could identify. We decided that, being Canadian, we should give the Canadian movie our support. I need to say that we were not disappointed! Going the Distance had so much that is necessary to a great "teen" movie: fun, laughs, love, sex, drugs, alcohol and extreme behaviors. The movie showed us beautiful and some familiar locations, such as the Much Music Corner in Toronto. It is great to see that everything about the movie was Canadian and it showed people that we do not need to go to Europe for a summer trip and that there is fun to be had in Canada! "Eh!?"
