[Going the Distance]

Five Things About Going the Distance:

1) It does not use the Cake song, but even so, the earworm sticks with you until the end of time.

2) Though better than I expected it to be — it has a few pacing issues, but it didn’t fill me with rage, which is frankly awesome for a romcom — it is about 20 minutes too long. In its defense, I am starting to think that about a lot of movies.

3) I never expected to see that much naked Justin Long, and I think everyone should be forewarned that that is going to happen.

4) Natalie Morales & Kristen Schaal are both in it, which should be awesome, but their roles are teeny tiny, so don’t see it for them.

5) The best line was a reference to Moesha, and was lost on a frightening percentage of the audience. I guess they’re too young to have spent their college years flipping between the WB & UPN. Too bad for them!

    Agree! Someone needs to go at the movies with a pair of scissors.

    Also, I am glad to hear it didn’t fill you with rage. Not just for you, but also for me, because I kind of want to see it, but I was worried.
