Movie Review: Going the Distance

This the perfect date movie. It tells the story of Erin (a Stanford journalism grad student) and Garret (a frustrated record label employee). Erin is finishing her summer internship and Garrett has just gotten out of a long term relationship. They only get 6 weeks before Erin goes back to school. At first, they decide that the 6 week thing id fine, but the course of true love never did run smooth or have good timing,

So they decide to make a go of the whole long distance thing. This leads to many flights back and forth, a failed attempt at phone sex, and an "oh,my God, we're caught moment" on her sister's dinning room table.

Being in a kind of long distance relationship myself, this movie made me think of what you do and do not do for love. Even though, it made me a bit melancholy and sort of committed to dealing with my own relationship, it's a good flick. I rate an 8.5/10. Curl up with your beloved and enjoy!
