Watch Justin Long Romance Drew Barrymore In 7 Minutes From Going The Distance
Hereís a little advice for you, if you ever become involved in a celebrity coupling. If youíre looking for privacy, if you wish people would just leave you alone so that your love can blossom, then you probably shouldnít make a movie in which you and your significant other re-enact a romance on screen. It sends the wrong message. I know the next time I feel bad for some celebrity couple being hounded by the paparazzi, Iíll probably think of Going the Distance, erase my guilt, and gleefully look at the latest photos of Walkadonna (thatís Chris Walken and Madonna. Itís happening. I guarantee it).
In Going the Distance real life couple Drew Barrymore and Justin Long (whose age difference isnít actually as big as you might think) play love birds trying to pull off the whole long distance romance thing. Itís cute, and sweet, and people will probably eat it up even more because in real life theyíre actually in love. Thatís fine. Just remember not to feel sorry for them the next time their dinner date ends up on the pages of US Weekly.
So hereís a quick look at whatís up with Going the Distance in the form of eight new clips. Itís pretty much the movie youíd expect. Justin Long is likeable. Drew Barrymore is likeable. The movie is sure to be likeable. Thereís not much more, except a poorly chosen spray tan gag (which the woman who sat behind me and giggled like a crazy person during the least funny scenes of Despicable Me will probably find hilarious) and a pretty funny sex scene in which the guy from Pale Force eats lunch. The film also features Christina Applegate in her first movie role since beating breast cancer. Iím probably not supposed to admit this, but seeing her sitting there in those clips makes me want to donate money and wear a few pink ribbons. Yes, for exactly that reason. Iíll need a Married with Children marathon after this. Hereís the clips:
