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

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.

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."

"Due Date" begins with a bad dream and eventually feels like one. It's tired and formulaic and offers only a few mild laughs.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

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.

"Due Date" wants to get you attached to its characters, but never finds the emotional resonance to make it happen.

... Dramatic moments work better than most of the comedy.

Downey and Galifianakis start this year's movie countdown to Christmas ho-ho-ho's with a solid round of rousing ha-ha-ha's.

It runs out of steam before the end comes into view.

Some amusing bits punctuate the tone-deaf proceedings like actual bits of chicken in Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup.

Having established that this movie has no good reason to exist beyond extending Zach Galifianaki's recent brand ascendancy, it's as good as you could want a useless entertainment exercise to be.

Peter and Ethan are not people you'd care to have sitting next to you on the shortest of bus trips, let alone a 2,000-mile car journey, but Downey Jr and Galifianakis make Due Date well worth the ride.

How much you'll enjoy Due Date depends more on your esteem for the leads rather than the quality of the screenplay; it is a mess of emotions and situations, working more than not, though tainted by that air of laziness that the entire production invites.

...an ill-tempered comedy, relying on misfortune and childishness for its humor.

A post-9/11 reproductive countdown road movie, Due Date rummages for laughs by pairing two eccentric comic actors together for a long cross-country drive, who should probably never be in the same room together.

Due Date manages to deliver the laughs.

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

Remember the John Candy/Steve Martin comedy 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles'? If so, 'Due Date' will bring it back to mind because it's a blend of that film and "The Hangover."

Sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, sometimes depressing, 'Due Date' may be more psych test than comedy...
