Review: Due Date

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 wind up Robert - it was fun but far far far from original or brilliantly funny - just, well, um... fun. I guess it passes the time before you die... Sort of like THE ENGLISH PATIENT but less excruciating. But then if you, like me, find Zach Galifianakis funny - see it. You could do much much worse (and yes, I do mean HANGOVER 2)...
