Due Date

Director Todd Phillips' follow-up to smash-hit The Hangover.

Peter (Robert Downey Jr.) is an expectant first-time father whose wife's due date is a mere five days away. Racing to get home to Los Angeles from Atlanta to see it all happen, his best intentions go completely awry and he's forced to hitch a ride with aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay (The Hangover's beardy-man Zach Galifianakis). Their cross-country road trip will ultimately destroy several cars, numerous friendships and Peter's last nerve.

A "Planes, Trains and Automobiles"-style cross-country odd-couple comedy that's less raunchy than their (Phillips/Galifianakis) last collaboration but every bit as outrageous.

Mr. Downey either can't, or doesn't, do much with Peter, who, as written by Mr. Phillips and three others, remains an off-putting, hollow man - a presumably unintentional lack of character development that represents the movie's sole honest moment.

This new comedy from the Hangover director, with Robert Downey Jr and Zach Galifianakis on a road trip together, is a decidedly mixed bag, says Peter Bradshaw

Due Date is nearly a down-market retread of the great comedy "Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

Due Date is watchable and will probably make a serious dent at the box office, but unlike The Hangover it isn’t re-watchable. We’ve seen both stars here before and we’ll definitely see Galifianakis here again. A smattering of funny moments and a lack of anything truly detestable make it a comedy about a journey probably best to be enjoyed while on a journey yourself.

Due Date doesn't begin to rival "Hangover" for inventiveness or hilarity. But the sharp comic instincts and contrasting styles of the stars, who never are offscreen, keep the film alive despite the setup's aggravations and familiarity.

Another Hangover was too much to hope for, especially as this was scripted by committee. It's a bit funny but also quite a bit nasty.

Artificially inseminated laughs...

Two stars. One for Robert Downey Jr. and one for Zach Galifianakis. Yup, the casting gets two stars. These two are great fun to watch. But other than the casting of the leads? Well, sadly it's predictable ODD COUPLE territory and you've seen it all before - right down to the ashes of a cremated relative (BIG LEBOWSKI anyone?) Anyway I enjoyed seeing Zach...

Nowhere near as good as Planes, Trains and Automobiles

This movie was a typical American movie - big on the physical comedy, but with very few witticisms and a dull script. I didn't laugh once in the whole film. Planes, Trains and Automobiles was awesome. This movie isn't a patch on that film.

Dull and mean

I was so disappointed in this movie, especially coming from Todd Phillips who did so well with The Hangover. The pairing of RDJ and Zach Galifianakis could have worked so well but RDJ was so mean it just wasn't funny.

It was Ok

Expected a bit more from this movie. Got sick of the constant character conflict. Not to say it didnt have its hilarious moments. Just would of rather rented on dvd than pay for admission.

A very funny film

This movie is very funny if you like to laugh at tragic situations. I have not seen a movie that made me laugh this much for a long time. Roll On Hangover 2.

Funny

This is a decent comedy with two solid performances from zack and downey jnr, there are a number of funny moments and crazy situations they get into along the way. This is worth seeing

The cinema erupted with laughter non stop

I loved the hangover and after seeing the trailer for this decided that I was definitely going to see this. It was beyond my expectation, I actually had a stitch by the end of the movie. Amazingly funny and witty. Zach Galiflanakis played his role very much the same as the hangover which was hilarious. If you loved the Hangover I would definitely recommend...
