And so by the time the pair admire the Grand Canyon and, Due Date has lost its way, relying on its leading men to lead by charisma alone, even though their characters have nowhere interesting to go besides the happily-ever-after of dull, responsible male maturity.

I winced more than laughed at this movie, which has almost as many broken bones as punch lines.

Rolling Stone

Recipe for nutso fun: Mix Zach Galifianakis with Robert Downey Jr. Apply the same mold John Hughes used for "Planes, Trains and Automobiles." Have Todd Phillips stir with wack-ass abandon. Don't worry about missing ingredients, like plot. Serve to an audience ready to lap it up.

A massive wedgie of a comedy, which is to say it's a comedy of extreme discomfort.

Todd Phillips' follow-up to the most successful R-rated comedy of all time serves up its share of laughs while not actually providing a terribly enjoyable time because of a queasy undercurrent that never goes away.

Like the direction, the script veers all over the place before reaching its inevitable, unsurprising destination.

A rather pat, occasionally desperate road comedy.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
The basic problem is the script, which is credited to three writers plus the director - seldom a good sign. Never mind that it's a retread of "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" minus the trains, and minus John Candy.

By Mick LaSalle
The comedy never really takes off because it's phony.
