We have seen many slapsticks romantic comedy films, but I guess this film would surely bring you something ‘change’ in such slapstick romantic comedy. We have seen many films where the young couples meet occasionally, events happen occasionally, and lastly both are falling in love with each other certainly. This film can be said that it goes on the same direction but having a slight change in the concept of the film. Concept is ‘How successful is the Long distance relationships, how the couples suffered through many emotional hurdles in such type of relationships, and how it can be solved through practical solutions.
It’s the story of about a guy ‘Garrett’ (Justin Long) who works in one of the music band company and recently had another break up with his new girl. She met a girl in a café bar eventually, ‘Erin’ (Drew Barrymore), who works as an intern in one of the leading newspaper there. They both became friends there and also laid down that night. Soon as the days were passing they were dating with each other frequently and started to like each other. But as Erin was working as an Intern, so after completing it she has to move to other state to complete her last year of graduation. Before leaving the state they both declared passionately that they want to be in an ‘Exclusive Relationship’. Now both are commutating with each other via internet, text messages, phones, and etc. but they both miss each other like any other. They also both initially visited frequently to their respective places, but later found it too costly. Later they both tried also to get a job opportunity at the opposite respective places but couldn’t turn it on. Will this kind of relationship work? Would they get break up with each other? Watch out the film to find the answers and to know the practical and real life solutions to fix long distance relationship into a happy life relationship.
Direction is good by the debutant director ‘Nanette Burstein’, and so does in the writing department by the debutant writer ‘Geoff La Tulippe’. The overall script is funny, witty, naughty, very original and entertaining. Dialogues are cleverly written and all the scenes were very well executed. Performances by Justin Long and Drew Barrymore were commendable, and the supporting cast such as Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, and Christina Applegate were hilarious on their respective characters.
A strongly recommended movie for all those couples who are into a long distance relationship. They will love it, enjoy it, and would certainly get entertain themselves throughout.
