Due Date (2010 Film) Review

I had no idea Due Date existed until the other day. Someone suggested it to me, and she had me at Robert Downey Jr. And Zach Galifianakis being in the same film. I wasn’t quite sure what the story was about but I figured it would be a great comedy.

Robert Downey Jr. stars as Peter Highman. After some trip in Atlanta, Georgia, he boards a plane back to Los Angeles, California to see his wife. He shouldn’t take too long as she’s about to give birth to their first child, a son.

Peter didn’t take account for Ethan Tremblay, an aspiring actor wishing to see Hollywood for himself. His crazy personality ends up getting them both put on the no-fly list. And that sure isn’t good.

In the chaos, Peter has no wallet, credit cards, or even an ID. Ethan however has money and a rental car. Luckily both are headed to the same destination but it’s going to be a long drive through the Southern States of America.

Overall, I quite enjoyed Due Date with Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis. It’s not the best comedy in the world, but I had plenty of laughs. I will say it reminds me a lot of Planes, Trains, Automobiles with Steve Martin and John Candy.

Score: B+
