Going the Distance
Friday 21st January 2011
This year's funniest romantic comedy, Going the Distance arrives on Blu-ray Triple Play and DVD on 31st January 2011 from Warner Home Video.
Going the Distance follows Erin and Garrett as they meet by chance in New York City and spark a fully-fledged summer fling. Neither expects it to last knowing Erin has to head home to San Francisco and Garrett has to stay behind, but after six weeks together in the city, they aren't sure they want it to end. And while Garrett's friends pick on him for his full-time relationship with his cell phone, Erin's highly strung sister is trying to shield her from going down this long distance path. However, despite the time zones and the nay-saying friends and family, Erin and Garrett might just have what it takes to go the distance.
From Academy Award®-nominated documentary filmmaker Nanette Burstein, Going the Distance stars Golden Globe Award winner Drew Barrymore (Grey Gardens, He's Just Not That Into You), Justin Long (He's Just Not That Into You, The Break-Up), Charlie Day (TV's It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Jason Sudeikis (TV's Saturday Night Live, TV's 30 Rock) and Christina Applegate (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy).
Erin's (Drew Barrymore) wry wit and unfiltered frankness charm newly single Garrett (Justin Long) over beer, bar trivia and breakfast the next morning. Their chemistry sparks a fully-fledged summer fling, but neither expects it to last once Erin heads home to San Francisco and Garrett stays behind for his job in New York City. But when six weeks of romping through the city inadvertently become meaningful, neither is sure they want it to end. And while Garrett's friends Box (Jason Sudeikis) and Dan (Charlie Day) joke about his pre-flight calorie-cutting, they don't like losing their best drinking buddy to yet another rocky romance. At the same time, Erin's overprotective married sister, Corinne (Christina Applegate), wants to keep Erin from heading down an all-too-familiar road.
But despite the opposite coasts, the opposing friends and family, and a few unexpected temptations, the couple just might have found something like love, and with the help of a lot of texting, sexting and late-night phone calls, they might actually go the distance.
