Going the Distance
When Garrett and Erin meet, neither of them want a relationship. Garrett was just dumped by his girlfriend, and Erin has only six weeks left at her internship before she returns to the west coast. So they have six great weeks together. When Erin leaves New York, they try and make the long distance relationship work.
Anyone who’s been in a long distance relationship will sympathise with the phone calls, texting, attempts at phone sex, and making time to fly out to see each other. As the story progresses, there’s less humour and more romance and the film starts to lose its appeal for me. But I love watching Drew, so it’s a bearable film about young love in the modern world.
