How To Have A Perfect Date is an 8 minute piece with the cast, where they answer dating-related questions — tips, what they look for in significant others and the like. The answers usually aren't that serious. Going along with that is The Cast of Going The Distance: Off The Cuff, which runs a bit over 4 minutes. Producer Adam Shankman and director Nanette Burstein talk about utilizing their cast, who are funny people and adept at improv. What follows then are some loose on-the-set moments, followed by a closing remark from Jason Sudeikis.
Lasting 8 minutes is A Guide To Long-Distance Dating. Burstein, Shankman, producer Jennifer Gibgot, screenwriter Geoff LeTulippe and the cast offer their thoughts on long-distance dating. In turn, the cast speaks about why the script struck a chord with them, and ultimately, why the movie is so relatable. Clips from the movie are interspersed with the interviews. If you've lived a life — or have watched enough television shows and movies — then you really won't learn anything here. It's a tiresome featurette that more or less keeps saying the same thing: long-distance relationships are hard.
Included on the disc are approximately 13 minutes of Deleted Scenes. Some are alternate takes, and other extensions. It's stuff that is superfluous in comparison to the rest of the film, but there are some amusing moments here. There are no explanations or commentary about these cuts.
There's also a music section, which features The Boxer Rebellion "If You Run" Music Video (3:25), and Behind The Scenes of the Going The Distance Soundtrack, which is actually a brief look at the making of the "If You Run" music video.
Also included is a DVD version of the movie along with a digital copy.
