Can Love Survive Going the Distance?

Being the hopeless romantic that I am, I would like to automatically answer ‘yes!’ πŸ™‚ However, can love indeed survive the distance? In the romantic comedy Going The Distance, Erin (Drew Barrymore) and Emmett (Justin Long) try to show that it can, indeed be done after they are swept up in a whirlwind romance they knew could not last, given that they lived in opposite ends of the country. Despite their decision to “keep it light and disease free”, they find themselves face to face with the fact that it was more than just a summer romance.

The film is a funny, yet realistic, take on the whole construct of long distance relationships, and relationships in general. While it plays up on the humor of the situation, the quintessential question of any love relationship rears its head in the film: how much do you give up of yourself to be with the one with you love?

I loved how the characters were so real and personable, which made the film even more endearing to me. However, it gave me sort of a grown-up American Pie feel to it. Not that that’s not a good thing πŸ™‚ If you’re looking to have a good laugh and to justΒ  chill after a long week, then this is definitely one that you should catch.

Being a big Drew Barrymore fan, I had my heart set on catching the movie and I’m glad I did πŸ™‚

The movie also stars Christina Applegate, Charlie Day, andΒ  Jason Sudeikis.

A New Line Cinema production, Going the Distance opens September 3, 2010 and is distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
