Popcorn Pick 9-3-10
Nothing really exciting this week, but this Pick will probably be worth a good laugh or two. The last-minute summer comedy Going the Distance stars real-life couple Drew Barrymore and Justin Long as a couple who decide to start a long-distance relationship. This theme of love and trust is very common in real-life but strangely rare in the movies, so I'm excited to see if this offers a fresh take on the romantic comedy genre. The PG-13 concept is surprisingly, rated R, due mainly to the promising supporting cast, which includes Christina Applegate, Jason Sudeikis (Saturday Night Live), Charlie Day (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia), and comedian Jim Gaffigan.
