Fresh from high school, Nick (Christopher Jacot) and two pals take a rollicking road trip to Toronto so that he can find and marry his girlfriend, who is being wooed by a sleazy music producer. Jason Priestley and rocker Avril Lavigne have cameos. Shawn Roberts.

Critic Reviews for Going the Distance

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

The landscape will survive this desecration; it's questionable whether the actors will.

August 20, 2004 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

An inexplicably dated, sexist Porky's knock-off.

August 20, 2004 | Rating: 0/4

There are few genuine jokes here, just familiar comic happenings.

November 25, 2004

It's as goofy and crude as this sort of road movie usually is, but the drug jokes, bad language and endless sex wisecracks are bound to amuse the pre-teen and (young) adolescent set.

August 20, 2004 | Rating: 2.5/5

It's a Bland, Dull, Dumb Movie.

Audience Reviews for Going the Distance

Call it an inflated grade, but I really liked this. It's basically a Canadian version of Road Trip, but it stands on its own, and is not a total ripoff. There's some hysterical moments here, and its a good way to pass roughly 90 minutes of time- especially if booze and smokes are involved.

Sex, sex, sex, sex and ummm wait, lemme think.. more SEX! I mean this is basically a PG porn movie. There's nothing substantial in this and i felt like i was wasting my precious time when instead i could be picking up a book and getting intellectual - not watch this movie and have my brain turn into jelly. Watch if you enjoy the 2 N'S: nudity and nothingness. Otherwise stay away. I'm sorry if i sounded harsh. Please excuse my distaste for this repugnant movie, if you can call it that.

Another version of 'Road Trip', but more entertaining
