Desperate to get home Peter is forced to accept the offer of Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis) to hitch a ride with him cross-country. Peter is about to go on the most terrifying and agonizing journey of his life.

Film Review

This is far from a great comedy, but it has a few funny moments. The two central characters work pretty well, but the relentless attempts to provoke sympathy for Zach Galifianakis' character don't work. Zach's character is ridiculously stupid and annoying, so the way Robert Downey's character warms to him just doesn't feel right.Most of the comedy feels forced and not well-thought-out; and one scene in particular is based on very juvenile humour. A few scenes do work well, though, and show that the whole film could have been special if the quality had been consistent throughout. The writers clearly couldn't come up with enough good ideas.Overall, Due Date is a wishy-washy experience, but worth a watch if you aren't expecting comedy gold. 6/10

Robert Downey Jnr, A exceptional actor who has the ability to make you laugh while no being OTT. Maybe that's why i enjoyed this film. If Zach was teamed up with someone like Ben Still or Bradley Cooper, then this film would of inevitably been another average Hollywood film. And it is when you get down to the basics.There's nothing to the plot. Peter has 5 days to get his butt to the hospital to see the birth of his first child. A mix up at the airport leaves him in the 'no fly zone' and abolishes any hope of arriving at the side of his partner. Well, he takes a hitch with a junkie low lifer and there endeavour across the states begins.The chemistry between the both of them is wonderful. There are many hilarious scenes and one-liners to keep you laughing throughout the entire film. The Mexico dilemma could of been edited out but never mind.The film was only going to end in one way. No big deal. Both major parts were acted incredibly and to that i say this is worth …
