He's in New York, she's on the west coast. While not exactly Sleepless in Seattle, the couple, with support or hindrance from their friends, do their best to make the long-distance relationship work.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconBarrymore and Long are both appealing, but not enough to sustain audience interest in the cinematic equivalent of dry-humping.

Tomatometer quote icon It's timelier and a little more honest than most romantic comedies, but Drew Barrymore and Justin Long's screen chemistry doesn't make up for Going the Distance's overall flatness.
