Struggling journalist Drew Barrymore and record-label drone Justin Long meet at the end of her summer newspaper internship — clearly, their love of dying media means they’re meant to be together — but even though she moves cross-country, they do their best to keep the spark alive, no matter how many airline tickets it costs them. Part of what makes this smart and occasionally potty-mouthed movie work so well is its portrayal of regular folks with real-life budgets, who can’t just jet off when the mood strikes. The charming chemistry of Barrymore and Long is balanced by great supporting bits from Christina Applegate, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Long, and Jim Gaffigan.
