Businessman Peter Highman (Downey Jr.) is an anxiously expectant first-time father whose wife's due date is only five days away. As Peter rushes to catch a flight home to Los Angeles from Atlanta to be present at the birth, complications arise and he is forced to hitch a ride home with aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay (Galifianakis). The two unlikely companions embark on a frenzied cross-country road trip that will change both of their lives forever. Jamie Foxx and Michelle Monaghan co-star.
From The Hangover director Todd Phillips, Due Date throws two unlikely companions together on a road trip that turns out to be as life-changing as it is outrageous. Expectant first-time father Peter Highman (Robert Downey Jr.) looks forward to his new child’s due date five days away. As Peter hurries to catch a flight home from Atlanta to be at his wife’s side for the birth, his best intentions go completely awry when an encounter with aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis) forces Peter to hitch a ride with Ethan on a cross-country trip that will ultimately destroy several cars, many friendships and Peter’s last nerve.

This is the same premise as the classic 1987 comedy Planes, Trains & Automobiles (albeit with a pregnancy instead of the Christmas holidays being the reason for the trip) as the guys form the original odd couple. The premise holds water being ushered into the modern age as the pair bumble from one travel-related disaster to another, hilarity ensues.
There is the feeling that both actors found their roles pretty easy; with Downey Jr. playing the high-flying suited architect with no patience and Galifianakis plays the same character he always does with the wild-eyed, dead-pan delivery style and the ever-present facial hair. Whilst neither of them are pushing the envelope in any respect they provide very tangible - if a little clichéd and two-dimensional - characters that bring a lot of humour to the saga.Read more ›
Humour never got weak, laughed throughout. This film will defiantly cheer you up:-)
Over the course of the film they will get thrown off the plane, start an ill fated road trip where mishaps and injuries occur and Peter's patience is tested to it limit. Ethan is a well meaning, but clumsy, irritating buffoon and his entry into Peter's life starts a chain of events that will leave them irrevocably bonded, but it won't be an easy ride by any stretch of the imagination.
This film had a few funny moments that raised a chuckle, but generally I found it to be a rather dry affair. The chemistry between Downey Jr and Galifianakis seemed lacking and whilst the extras gag reel showed them having a good time during filming, this didn't translate onto the screen. Juliette Lewis' brief appearance was one of the highlights of the film and her performance was as good as we have come to expect from her. The direction was average at best with nothing especially note-worthy and the best part of this film was probably the soundtrack which features Neil Young, Band of Horses and Pink Floyd.
All in all this is an ok comedy film, but the laughs are few and far between and whilst it isn't the worst film I've ever seen, it is nowhere near the best either. This is the kind of film you'll watch once, be reasonably entertained and then forget by the time a couple of days have passed. Give it a go, but don't expect anything outstanding.

Robert Downey jr. plays an architect who is a bit of a snob. Zach Galifanakis, is the common man with dreams of being a movie star. He is a fan of "2 1/2 Men" and like a child, or my last gf, sometimes doesn't realize or care about the consequence of his actions.
The movie is laugh out loud funny. I didn't think that it measured up to the original PT&A, simply because Downey's character was far less colorful than Steve Martin. The movie was written to showcase Zach Galifanakis. I thought it was better than "The Hangover" in that it excludes the abundance of sophomoric humor.
No nudity or sex. Contains language, masturbation, and pot smoking. Okay it has some sophomoric humor.
