A comedy about meeting each other halfway.
Erin’s 31, a journalism grad student at Stanford and, for the summer, an intern at a New York daily. She meets Garrett at a bar, they hit it off, and, for the rest of the summer, are inseparable. But, can the relationship grow – or even survive – at a distance? Erin, who put her professional life on hold once before for a man, gets advice from her married sister, Corinne, and he gets running commentary from his best friend Box and his roommate Dan – both clueless about women. Garrett, who doesn’t much like his job at a record company, looks for work in the Bay Area, Erin tries to find a reporting job in New York, but as these efforts fail, is there any hope for them as a couple?
This is one of the most real AND funny Rom/Com’s that have come out of this stale city in quite some time. Often when one of these movies come out, hordes of women beg their beau’s to come to the cinema to no avail. luckily for us, this is a fresh new look at an otherwise female driven genre.
Going the Distance takes a look at long distance relationships from a REAL perspective. None of this Hollywood glitz. None of these fairy tale endings w/ friends who say and do what the producers hope the audience want to hear. It’s like your watching a docu-drama about funny people. This movie showcases events how they would actually happen. People how they’d actually talk and relationships as unpredictable as they actually are.
Another refreshing notion is how this movie is told, in the majority, from the male’s perspective. Not entirely, but enough. It’s told from a place where humor, booze and late night / post weekend b*tch sessions w/ close friends and/or relatives help weave together a romantic story in a funny way. It’s just how life happens!
I’ve seen this movie and can contest that it is the perfect concoction of humor, fun, romantic moments and hard R moments to make it a good fit for most couples. And guys, this will be a great way to go see a Romantic Comedy for your girl and get something out of it for yourself. GIVE IT A CHANCE, AND YOU’LL BE TELLING OTHERS TO DO THE SAME.
