Due Date

Director Todd Phillips' follow-up to smash-hit The Hangover.

Peter (Robert Downey Jr.) is an expectant first-time father whose wife's due date is a mere five days away. Racing to get home to Los Angeles from Atlanta to see it all happen, his best intentions go completely awry and he's forced to hitch a ride with aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay (The Hangover's beardy-man Zach Galifianakis). Their cross-country road trip will ultimately destroy several cars, numerous friendships and Peter's last nerve.

A "Planes, Trains and Automobiles"-style cross-country odd-couple comedy that's less raunchy than their (Phillips/Galifianakis) last collaboration but every bit as outrageous.

Mr. Downey either can't, or doesn't, do much with Peter, who, as written by Mr. Phillips and three others, remains an off-putting, hollow man - a presumably unintentional lack of character development that represents the movie's sole honest moment.

This new comedy from the Hangover director, with Robert Downey Jr and Zach Galifianakis on a road trip together, is a decidedly mixed bag, says Peter Bradshaw

Due Date is nearly a down-market retread of the great comedy "Planes, Trains and Automobiles.

Due Date is watchable and will probably make a serious dent at the box office, but unlike The Hangover it isn’t re-watchable. We’ve seen both stars here before and we’ll definitely see Galifianakis here again. A smattering of funny moments and a lack of anything truly detestable make it a comedy about a journey probably best to be enjoyed while on a journey yourself.

Due Date doesn't begin to rival "Hangover" for inventiveness or hilarity. But the sharp comic instincts and contrasting styles of the stars, who never are offscreen, keep the film alive despite the setup's aggravations and familiarity.

Another Hangover was too much to hope for, especially as this was scripted by committee. It's a bit funny but also quite a bit nasty.
