movie date with my "husband" : "Going the Distance."



honestly, who doesn't love Drew Barrymore? she's just beautiful, real, fun, and a guy's girl... the kind of girl i want to always be. 


i fell in love with justin long in "he's just not that into you." I love actors who seem like "real" guys you could actually meet (jake gyllenhaal / james mcavoy anyone?). They don't have the drop dead looks of say Brad Pitt but they're sexier for it. That's Justin Long to me. 

They were my favourite celeb couple and when they broke up i was so sad. I was happy to hear they were back on and together in a film no less. I think their chemistry made it all that much more real onscreen. 


 I laughed AND cried ... isn't that the kind of film you wanna see? no spoilers here but i cried because it showed emotions i have felt in my relationship/relationships. Isn't that the definition of a good film?

ladies, take your husband/boyfriends to go see it because though a rom-com, it has some fun for the boys. 

another plus? features music from a band that just might be my new favorite.



i so love movie dates with my husband-to-be.

if you've seen it, did you love it as much?

I was going to watch Going the Distance last weekend with my girlfriend but she had to bail. We were ify about watching it since both of us knew nothing about it. Thanks for your review. Now I know it's a good movie but I will be prepared for some laughter and tears.

I'm putting this on my list.

YES YES YES. Loved that movie... I saw it with a girl friend, but want to take the boyfriend to see it again. I'm picky when it comes to chick flicks, but this one was wonderful!!! The emotions were so real!! And I just love Charlie Day (the room mate) -- he's hilarious.

It's funny you mention wanting to be like Drew, I totally do too!! : )
