Storyline

Erin has just six more weeks as an intern at the New York Sentinel before she returns to San Francisco. That's fine with Garrett since he just got out of a relationship. But their relationship blossoms and it quickly becomes something that they can't just drop in six weeks. They admit to wanting to be boyfriend/girlfriend just on opposite coasts. The distance wears on them, as with their nay-saying friends and sister, and soon they are forced to either break up or come up with a solution that has them living in the same city.

Trivia

Only the two main characters have complete names: Garrett Austin Scully for Justin Long and Erin Rankin Langford for Drew Barrymore. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Garret leaves California after his visit, he states that he "got the middle seat" after getting his boarding pass from Southwest Airlines. Southwest boarding passes do not assign seats, but have boarding groups instead, so he could not know what seat he would be taking. See more »

Great Rom-Com
23 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Going The Distance was far better than expected. I saw the trailer for this movie before going to see it and I thought it looked good, but far too often with this type of film, all the best bits are in the trailer. This was not the case with this film, it was consistently funny, well acted and very good in general. Drew Barrymore and Justin Long were very believable as a couple (this may have something to do with them being together on off in real life). I thought that each actor played their part well, the friends of the main characters were all fantastic. Overall, this is well worth going to see and one of the funniest rom-coms I have seen in a long time.
