The twist is that they’re all gay.
Comedy veteran Drew Barrymore and an astonishingly buff Justin Long sparkle in this bromance/romance about all that stuff that rom-coms are about. Though it uses every trick in the book, fantastic lead performances, a killer soundtrack and a focus on comedy rather than fluff makes Going The Distance a cut above the rest.
For fans of 2009’s smash hit The Hangover it’s time to rejoice, as we can confirm that the original movie’s troublesome trio of Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis have all signed up for the film’s sequel. Despite earlier hesitance from the movie’s stars to commit to the sequel, it is proposed that shooting for The Hangover 2 will commence sometime in July, with Cooper reportedly so eager to commence filming that he has pulled out of rom-com This Means War (which was also due to commence filming in July).
The latest in a steady stream of ‘bromance’ comedies that have been infiltrating the cinema since Anchorman and Knocked Up were surprise hits, you know what you’re in for when you go to rent this film from your local Blockbuster. That said, this film was a box office triumph when it hit cinemas as word spread it was a cut above most frat-boy comedies. But after all the hype, upon finally viewing this film we were underwhelmed.
