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.
"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
