Christian's Review of Due Date
For a comedy, it serves its purpose, but 'Due Date' is nothing to get giddy about. Its writing and plot are completely silly, but Galifianakis and Downey, Jr do a fantastic job with what they are given. Galifianakis's ridiculous antics balance very well with Downey, Jr's pent-up straight man attitude, and, frankly, they are the only reason to watch this movie. The humour is sparse, but quite funny in an "I can't believe this is happening" kind of way, which doesn't work for everyone, but I find great.
All in all, it's a fun way to blow a few hours with friends. It's no Oscar winner, but it's worth a watch, if you can watch it for little-to-no cost.
