Editorial Reviews

From The Hangover director Todd Phillips, Due Date throws two unlikely companions together on a road trip that turns out to be as life-changing as it is outrageous. Expectant first-time father Peter Highman (Robert Downey Jr.) looks forward to his new child’s due date five days away. As Peter hurries to catch a flight home from Atlanta to be at his wife’s side for the birth, his best intentions go completely awry when an encounter with aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis) forces Peter to hitch a ride with Ethan on a cross-country trip that will ultimately destroy several cars, many friendships and Peter’s last nerve.

I'm so tired of reading reviews of people saying "it's not as good as The Hangover". It's not the Hangover!!! It's not the sequel to the Hangover, it's not the same storyline as the Hangover, in fact, it's got nothing to do with any kind of Hangover. Due Date may be directed by by Mr. Phillips of Hangover fame and star Galifinakis of the same, but this is a completely different movie with a different plot. If you want to watch another version of the Hangover the sequel comes out this summer, but if you want to enjoy an engrossing comedy starring two great entertainers, watch Due Date. When you watch this, please, I beg of you, don't measure it by The Hangover. Do you measure Field of Dreams by Dances With Wolves? Do you measure Mad Max by Braveheart? This is it's own movie separate from all others.

Robert Downey Jr and Zach have a good chemistry involved with this movie, its theme reminds me of planes, trains and automobiles with Steve Martin and the late John Candy. If you loved that movie you will definately love Due Date, poor Peter's goal is to get home to his pregnant wife and encounters Hollywood (Zach) in an airplane Peter gets shot by an air marshal they both get kicked off the plane put on a no fly list and Hollywood talks Peter into riding along with him and his dog sonny to L.A Peter can't rent a car because his wallet is still on the plane or so he thinks, the trip involves many hilarous moments from a freak car crash which Peter suffers a broken arm to being arrested at the boarder for drugs to getting accidently shot by Hollywood. This is true enjoyment I loved the dog he was great!Due Date

This is a classic slapstick, tough luck comedy story involving a road trip from East to West coast.

In a nutshell: an expectant father is flying from ATL to LA when he crosses paths with a odd-ball guy who ends up getting them kicked off the airplane for suspicious behavior. In the process, he "loses" his wallet and, by a mixture of circumstances, has to travel across the county with the same nutcase who got him thrown off the plane. During the journey, they get into a mix of trouble.

What I liked: Zach Zach Galifianakis is really funny throughout -- great scenes and acting. The obliviousness to societal "norms" is what makes it funny. As you see in the preview, Robert Downey Jr.'s character is telling a sad tale of his father leaving him as a child. After hearing it, Galifianakis starts cracking up laughing and says something about how his father would never do that because he loved him.

Disliked: Some of the craziness is overdone; needed more edgy scenes and clever ideas in some points of the film; the Mexico scene was a bit much.

Overall: VERY GOOD for a mindless comedy. If you liked Hangover, Wedding Crashers, Sex Drive, Road Trip, American Pie, etc., you'll probably enjoy it. Fortunately, it doesn't go as far as Borat or Jackass in terms of shocking and grotesque humor. But, if you are easily offended, dislike raunchy jokes, or just don't enjoy this type of comedy, it's probably not for you.

Architect Peter Highman (Robert Downey Jr.) is trying to get home to his pregnant wife who is expecting soon when he comes into contact with Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis) an aspiring actor. After a series of unfortunate event's Peter and Zach get kicked off of their plane and end up carpooling to get home. These two characters confront several obstacles on their way home that seem impossible to recover from.

"Due Date" is oddly low rated and I wonder if some critics saw the same movie I did. While I'm sure this movie isn't the next "The Hangover" it surely doesn't deserve such a low rating. The story isn't too great this is more of a new age of humor that was brought about due to movies like "The Hangover" and "Superbad" which sold like crazy to young audiences who find this more grotesque humor involving masturbation and bodily fluids wildly entertaining. Older audiences aren't going to enjoy it as much.

This is basically the same scenario as "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles" where you have two opposite characters who must work together to achieve the goal of getting home. This movie does not quite have the story and moments moments that really provoked strong emotion like in "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles" it does provide the laughter with some pretty bizarre scenarios. Robert Downey Jr. and Galifianakis is a weird combo but I believed that this movie really pulled it off.

While it isn't AMAZING it is still a decent movie to go see and provides some good laughs if you are in to that kind of humor.
I give this movie a 6 out of 10

Todd Phillips needs to pay residuals to the late John Hughes for a complete theft of his plot for "Planes, Trains and Automobiles." But while that movie was light and funny, and quite often genuinely from the heart, this movie aims below the belt, and is often dark and cruel.

The cool little twist to this movie (at least to me) is that Robert Downey Jr.'s Peter is very much a sarcastic prick. Yeah, he earns it, since Galifianakis' character is so intolerable, but it's nice that Peter has an edge.

I think the problem is that even though the movie is occasionally funny, Galifianakis' behavior is beyond disgusting and repulsive, and yet the movie seemingly looks down at Peter for his reaction to it. Whenever Peter lets loose to tell Galifianakis' Ethan what a slob he is, he either pays for it by being physically hurt or is forced to apologize.

What saves this movie is Downey Jr. -- because quite honestly, he's the one who has all the laughs. For all the crazy behavior by Galifianakis, it's actually Downey who gets you laughing. His wrinkle-faced expressions of disbelief are hilarious.

The movie goes into loony-tunes territory later on, when Peter and Ethan get into all sorts of illegal activity, and the movie conveniently fails to mention why they're not put in jail for the rest of their lives at the end of the film.

Michelle Monaghan (reuniting with "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang" co-star Downey), Jamie Foxx (who almost doesn't seem to know why he's in the movie) and Juliette Lewis are completely forgettable and wasted.

What "Due Date" really is is just a cash-grab by Todd Phillips, who threw together the film with Galifianakis to capitalize on the success of "The Hangover." But the film suffers from a slapdash feel.
