衝著男主角 Justin Long 去看了這部愛情小品

(很可愛的男生! 演過 鐵男躲避球他其實不是那麼喜歡你”)

片名叫 Going the Distance, 是個雙關語 (注意沒有 to )

因為 片語 go the distance 指的是堅持目標, 長期地持續努力

而電影的內容在講的是這對情侶如何談 遠距戀愛” (long-distance relationship)

所以片名裡的 distance 也剛好是真的指兩人之間的地理距離

If you want to reach your goal, you have to go the distance.

(想達成目標, 就要努力堅持下去)

He is really going the distance with this project.


要講兩個人在談遠距戀愛, 可以說: They are in a long-distance relationship.

或是 Tom is in a long-distance relationship.

人們也會常說: Long-distance relationships are hard! (遠距戀愛很辛苦!)

另外, 像這種 女生才會想看的電影 (愛情片, 有時也可能是溫馨感人的片等等)

在英文口語中 chick flick(s)

chick 在俗語中就是 小妞; 女生的意思

flick 是指影片

造個句: My girlfriend dragged me to a chick flick last night.


Guys usually don’t dig chick flicks, but they would go to one for their wives or girlfriends.

(男生通常不愛女生看的那種片子, 但會為了老婆或女友而去看)

(: dig 在此 = like)
