Editorial Reviews

Erin (Drew Barrymore) and Garrett (Justin Long) strike sparks for a summer fling in New York City but neither expects it to last once Erin heads home to San Francisco and Garrett remains behind for his Big Apple job. But after six romantic weeks, neither is sure they want it to end. So despite opposing coasts, naysaying friends and family and unexpected temptations, the couple just might have found something like love. And helped by a lot of texting and late-night phone calls, they might actually go the distance.

Customer Reviews

I have now watched this movie at LEAST 4 times!
Sarah H.
This movie went too far their were jokes about sexual things and even a scene with the justin long naked which was also disgusting and unnecessary.
It has a great cast with very funny and silly humor and is very entertaining.

Just finished watching the movie.

Short rant:
This film is rated R. I have read through the reviews here, about people only watching 10 minutes of the film and turning it off due to language... If you look at the rating on this page and on the box itself, it is rated R for language, some drug use, and sex. If you are sensitive to the F word, sexual images, drugs, *and* you are trying to watch this movie with your family, then you are doing something wrong. Also the "I expected better of Drew" comments... actors try new things. Yes, Drew Barrymore has done lots of romcom chick flicks that you can watch with your preteen, but you might take notice that they are by and large PG-13, not R. If you are sensitive and/or watching this with your family or young ones, it is *your* responsibility to read the rating, not blindly watch a movie expecting it to adhere to your standards.
/end rant

As for the movie, the beginning introduces us to Garrett (Justin Long), who is newly single as a result of a funny miscommunication with his (now ex) girlfriend, and a summer intern, Erin (Drew Barrymore), who is working for the New York Sentinel newspaper while on break from grad school at Stanford. They meet at a bar and hit it off in a really unique way--over an interrupted game of Centipede; our female lead is the reigning champion on the arcade game's score board, and our male lead the interrupter and runner-up. It was unusual enough for me to take notice and expect a different kind of movie! The two leads hit off while a countdown starts running on the 6 weeks Erin has left before her summer internship is over.

Format: DVD
Short Attention Span Summary:

1. Guy meets girl.
2. Girl moves away.
3. The two try to carry on a long distance relationship, and the conflict is (of course) the effect of the distance on their relationship.

This movie was good all the way through, and while the content was chick-ish, it did provide many a good laugh. The writing was very good and the characters were well cast.

It would be worth the price of a second hand DVD to me. (As it happens, I saw this film on a plane included as part of the ticket.)

I usually do not write reviews on sites such as this but felt like I should for this film (considering that roughly a third of the reviewers have given it a 1). I know that film is subjective but I can objectively say that you are a moron if you gave this movie a 1.

A few reviewers attributed their low rating of the film in part due to the "bad language" in it. Well the film is rated R "for sexual content including dialogue, language throughout, some drug use and brief nudity", can you people read...do you not bother looking at a film's rating before you watch it. If you do not want to watch a film because it has bad language in it then fine, don't watch it, and definately don't give it a bad review for it.

Also, a couple people pointed out that the film was "cliche"...people pointing out how something is cliche has become cliche at this point. Let me tell you something: at this point everything is cliche, everything has been done before. Whether or not it is done well is what I care about when watching a film.

In my opinion this film was well written, directed, and acted. Yes, there was bad language in the film but guess what? Most 20-somethings swear, I actually liked this aspect of the film...it gave it an added sense of realism. I personally thought the dialog was sharp and witty, much better written than your average romantic comedy. I like films that have a little edge to them and this film had that.

Regarding the acting, I thought everyone did a very good job. I don't watch a lot of Drew Barrymore movies but I thought she was very good in this as was Justin Long. They both are very natural on film and seem to have good chemistry.

OK. I'm sorry, but Drew Barrymore was just completely wrong for this movie. I get the "I'm 30 and I'm behind in my life because I put everything on hold for a guy" thing, but she seemed like she was trying to be some intense young 20-something. I really wanted her to act her age, which was unfortunate because all that eye make-up just made her look like she was 40 years old. Now, I like Drew Barrymore and have enjoyed many of her movies. But she and Justin Long really seemed like they were in two different age groups. The chemistry between them was forced and the desperation of a long-distance relationship just wasn't very convincing. Justin Long was I think a good fit for this role, but I don't think the character development was complete. He did seem to be just coasting along while Drew was overdoing it, but again I think he was held back by the poor chemistry with his co-star. I have seen him do terrific work in other movies ('Dreamland' and 'He's Just Not That Into You' are excellent examples), but this movie just had numerous issues all around.

I felt that this movie was trying to be funny in the manner of 'There's Something About Mary' or '40-Year Old Virgin,' but it just wasn't. The attempts at gross humor (especially all that swearing) were misplaced and forced and took away from the sweetness of the story. Christina Applegate was just plain mean, and men in general were portrayed as idiots. The one bright spot in the movie was seeing an excellent band, The Boxer Rebellion, which we see playing on stage at a club in San Fran.

This could have been a really good story in different hands and with a different cast. It just really missed the mark.
