What makes this romantic movie worth watching is the chemistry between the two leads (Justin Long and Drew Barrymore). Without chemistry, it could have been a disaster. There’s a lot of vulgarity involved, and the “F” word is used over a hundred times, but all is forgiven, thanks to a very likable cast. “Going The Distance” has a lot to offer; it’s funny, it’s sad and most of all: it’s romantic. I’ve never seen Justin Long in a movie like this before, and I can honestly say that I was impressed.
On a negative note, I really wish the second half was as good as the first; one loses interest in the story after the hour mark, and the ending seemed a bit rushed. Some might disagree with me, but overall, I still think it’s an enjoyable movie. See for yourself!
