What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star
Zane Henry An average rom-com with enjoyable moments
Jeane Calitz Die wel en wee van die liefde oor die afstand
Pam Grady Raunchy, young and lovable
Peter Travers Barrymore and Long are both appealing, but not enough to sustain audience interest in the cinematic equivalent of dry-humping.
C. Fuchs While it takes its sweet time in doing the titular thing, Going the Distance has enough charm and laughs
Tomatometer 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.
