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.

Downey is fine, but lacks the comedic touch that Steve Martin had, meaning that while you totally understand why he is so nasty and unhappy in the film, you lack the full sympathy for him that you had Martins character.
If you put yourself in Downeys shoes, you fully understand why he is like he is, but that does not make you "like" him.
Very little is original here, but it does have a few moments that might make you laugh (mostly Downey).
Overall its an ok film, but will hardly be remembered as the classic Planes is.
The plot copies the 1987 classic planes trains and automobiles in that two travellers embark on a chaotic road trip across the states.
There's a few scenes that stand out , the one with zac's dog pleasuring himself and when zac gets a rough ride from Jamie foxx's pick up truck plus the coffee that they drink turning out to be zac's fathers ashes.
Definitely well worthy of a watch and is up with stepbrothers as having multiple rewatch value imo. Enjoy .
not 5 stars, seems like they copied the hangover a little? my opinion
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.
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 ›
