Going the distance

It's timelier and a little more honest than most romantic comedies, but Drew Barrymore and Justin Long's screen chemistry doesn't make up for Going the Distance's overall flatness. Their chemistry sparks a full-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 and his full-time relationship with his cell phone, they don't like losing their best drinking buddy to yet another rocky romance.

Going the distance

From my experience so far, her love stories tend to be a little more edgy than your usual fluffy romance. Complex yet intriguing characters, complicated relationship dynamics, frustrating but oh so sweet nonetheless.

Maybe because Keyes has been a solid 4 star author for me so far and I trusted her to deliver. And boy, did she ever. Loneliness, boredom and their status as outsiders in a strange country is what brings Olivia and Jarek together in the first place, after all.

Jarek was a commitment phobe if I ever saw one. Whew, he was a piece of work, one I occasionally wanted to smack over the head for his hot-and-cold behavior and his overall routine of shutting everyone out.

But I do have a soft spot for this kind of hero. I love to see their growth, taking baby steps to becoming more, to trust and care and feel, letting go of some of their rough edges and fears.

She was pretty awesome, not only due to the way she handled that grouch but also because she was a compassionate, strong heroine with a big sense of justice and an even bigger heart.
