Due Date (2010)



Critic Consensus: Shamelessly derivative and only sporadically funny, Due Date doesn't live up to the possibilities suggested by its talented director and marvelously mismatched stars.

All Critics (186) | Top Critics (39)

Downey is not entirely comfortable playing straight man and a little of Galifianakis's antics goes a long way.

Top Critic

Due Date is absolutely hilarious! Downey Jr. and Galifianakis are perfect together and the film is wildly entertaining.

We Got This Covered

As far as road trip comedies go, this isn't the best one. However, it has plenty of funny parts - even outside of the trailer.

7M Pictures

Aims the slow burn of Robert Downey Jr. at the addled idiocy of Zach Galifianakis in a "Hangover" director's version of "Planes, Trains and Automobiles."

Movie Nation

"Due Date" begins with a bad dream and eventually feels like one. It's tired and formulaic and offers only a few mild laughs.

Big Hollywood

Phillips convolutes the adventure with a bizarre mix of unrealized emotional complexity and over-the-top gross-out humor but most viewers will still enjoy the loony ride.

Audience Reviews for Due Date


Due Date has a good deal of funny moments and works thanks to the talent of its two stars, especially Galifianakis, who is really obnoxious at first but soon gains our sympathy.

Carlos Magalhães

Super Reviewer

Zach Galifianakis' giant, slobbering puppy routine just makes you want to smack his nose with a 2x4, but then he throws out this really moving crying scene that seems charged by the depths of his soul. That's basically the dynamic between the humorless, responsible, soon-to-be-dad and the infuriating, good-hearted, actor-wannabe in "Due Date," and it works. RDJ plays a great, blasé straight man, and the budding father/overgrown-son relationship is filled with triumphs and laughs. But alas, Michelle Monaghan is, once again, a mere supportive woman.

Alice Shen

Super Reviewer

Zach Galifinakus and Robert Downey Jr work off perfectly hand in hand with the comedy and the whole movie was full of unexpected moments that made it more funny every second of the film
