When I clicked play on this trailer for Going the Distance*, the first thing I saw was real-life couple Justin Long and Drew Barrymore amusing the hell out of each other with hilarious jokes about tortellini and I thought I’d never stop vomiting. I thought it was over, and that’s when the blood diarrhea started. But as I looked up from my agony, I noticed my hirsute, lilliputian man-crush Charlie Day from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia was there too (playing… Justin Long’s dad**? Huh?). Then SNL’s most-underrated cast member Jason Sudeikis showed up. Before I passed out, I think I saw Jim Gaffigan. Was it real? Are Jim Gaffigan and Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis really in a Drew Barrymore rom-com? Or was it all just a sh*tty-movie induced hallucination? You be the judge.
“Uh, I’ll have the milk steak? Boiled over hard, with a side of jelly beans.”
*a perfect, by-the-book, play-on-words-plus-familiar-song Rom-Com title, by the way.
**According to IMDB, his character’s name is “Dan.”
