Due Date 2010 6 of of 10
Zach Galifanakis is just plain funny...He was great in both Hangover flicks, shined when he hosted Saturday Night Live and again is good here....Robert Downey Jr. is a great actor but maybe a little too intense for this comedy...Todd Phillips is on a Hollywood hot streak.....
Due Date is a good ---but for me suffers from the fact that it was trying to be Planes, Trains and Automobiles (if it was an R rated movie) and Planes. Trains and Automobiles is a much better film. Every wacky scene that takes place in this 2 guys forced to travel cross country together film I thought about better scenes and funnier moments from Planes and Trains. There are definitely some good laughs I'm just wondering if Downey wasn't miscast in this role.....He is too angry....Too intense ...so that I didn't by it when he appologized and tried to be nice again......I think you need a Steve Martin that you can Identify for the role of the guy stuck on a journey with this travel partner from hell.
