Due Date (2010)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

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.

Movie Info

Director Todd Phillips re-teams with his break-out Hangover star Zach Galifianakis for this road movie concerning a soon-to-be father (played by Robert Downey Jr.) and his cross-country trip to make it back in time for his baby's birth -- with the only roadblock being the dubious passenger (Galifianakis) who's along for the ride. Michelle Monaghan and Jamie Foxx co-star in the Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures production. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

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

Films like Get Him to the Greek have already done a far superior job with madcap this year.

The most offensive bodily fluid being hurled around in Due Date are the tears that Phillips dishonestly tries to wrest from the audience's eyes.

Due Date is funny enough, but it should have been funnier.

Audience Reviews for Due Date

½

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.

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.

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
