Storyline Heading
When Erin and Garrett hook up, their intentions are to have a few fun and frisky weeks before she heads back to grad school in San Francisco and he stays in New York City. But when Erin's about to board a plane for home, they both realize they have developed deeper feelings for one another, and they don't want whatever it is they have together to end. So, they decide to give the "long distance thing" a go.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Romantic Comedy - Unlike all of Drew Barrymore's other romantic comedies, this one is a lot more raunchy and has a lot more profanity. As such, language, sexual situations, and sex talk give it more male appeal and make the film inappropriate for children. Fans of Barrymore, leading man Justin Long, and supporting players such as Christina Applegate will have plenty to enjoy.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good Going the Distance doesn't get all of this right, but it captures enough for us to believe the characters and their situations.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 30 moviegoers:
TEENS:One female loved it and one hated it, which is certainly not much help.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:The two males loved "Going the Distance." Three of the five females loved it and the remaining two enjoyed it very much.
ADULTS:Four of the seven males loved it and one enjoyed it very much. The other two rated it average and below average. Three-quarters of the females enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately, the remaining reviews are not very good and even terrible.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Erin's (Drew Barrymore) wry wit and unfiltered frankness charm newly single Garrett (Justin Long) over beer, bar trivia and breakfast the next morning. Their chemistry sparks a full-fledged summer fling, but neither expects it to last once Erin heads home to San Francisco and Garrett stays behind for his job in New York City. But when six weeks of romping through the city inadvertently become meaningful, neither is sure they want it to end. And while Garrett's friends Box (Jason Sudeikis) and Dan (Charlie Day) joke about his pre-flight calorie-cutting and his full-time relationship with his cell phone, they don't like losing their best drinking buddy to yet another rocky romance. At the same time, Erin's high-strung, overprotective married sister, Corinne (Christina Applegate), wants to keep Erin from heading down an alltoo- familiar road.

But despite the opposite coasts, the nay-saying friends and family, and a few unexpected temptations, the couple just might have found something like love, and with the help of a lot of texting, sexting and late-night phone calls, they might actually go the distance.
