Drew Barrymore is back with a new romantic comedy movie, Going The Distance. I am a certified Drew Barrymore fan, in fact, I have watched almost all of her movies, I think, a number of times already. I have been vocal in saying that I have a hopeless romantic spot in me, and most of Drew Barrymore’s films have this kind of genre – romantic comedy films.
Going The Distance is a new 2010 movie directed by Nanette Burstein, produced by Jennifer Gibgot, Jared Hess and Adam Shankman and is released by New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Cinematography of this movie is courtesy of Eric Steelberg, editing by Peter Teschner and the Studio used was of Offspring Entertainment. This film was written by Geoff LaTulippe, who is a close friend of producer David Neustadter. LaTulippe based this movie on David’s real life long distance relationship with a former girlfriend. It started its filming last July 2009 in New York City and was originally scheduled to hit the big screen last August 27, 2010 but later on moved its play date to September 3, 2010.
Going The Distance stars the real-life couple Drew Barrymore and Justin Long. The story revolves around this couple, Garrett (Long) and Erin (Barrymore) and their experiences and hardships in maintaining a long distance relationship. Garrett lives in New York, while Erin is from California. The two meet in New York when Erin was on her summer vacation.
Other casts of this film are Charlie Day (Dan), Jason Sudeikis (Box), Christina Applegate (Corrine – Erin’s Sister), Kelli Garner (Brianna), Natalie Morales (Brandy), June Diane Raphael (Karen), Ron Livingston (Will), Rob Riggle (Ron), Peyton R. List (Kaley Arizona), Kristen Schaal, Jim Gaffigan (Phil – Corrine’s Husband), Sarah Burns (Harper), Matt Servitto (Hugh), Meredith Hagner (TBA), Oliver Jackson Cohen (Damon), Leighton Meester (Amy) and Mick Hazen (Zeff). There is also a cameo role for the British band, The Boxer Rebellion.
On the other hand, movie review aggregators online has a negative or low ratings this is maybe because of foul languages and sex jokes lines of the characters in this movie, but as for me, every Drew Barrymore movie is always a hit!
Opening on Friday, September 3, 2010, Going the Distance is a New Line Cinema production, and distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
