Going the Distance
As a rule, romantic comedies don't appeal to me. Going the Distance broke that rule. Listening to reviewers I respect (both men), I saw this film. I don't usually gush about individual performances, but I think Christina Applegate and Charlie Day killed it in the laugh department. Boy meets girl. Boy and girl try to be sensible, but fall in love. Boy and girl live 3000 miles away from each other for a year. That's all I'll say about plot. Just know that I thought this was well written, well acted and the music plays a nice role. Well done.
