Honestly, I'm going to tell it like it is. I went into this movie with an open mind despite the bad reviews and it is just as the critics say. Robert Downey and Zach both did a great job playing their characters but this was truly as predictable as any cross country comedy can get. Jamie's role was a little disappointing as he didn't add to the comedy at all. The jokes were in there but they weren't developed nearly enough to leave a lasting impression. I'd advise for folks to wait for the DVD if you truly want to see it but this is no "Hangover". HOWEVER, Sonny (the dog) is pretty darn cute.

Both stars were really good at enacting a story that was lacking and had a few gaping holes.
Although there were some very funny scenes. The teenagers in the theater really seemed to enjoy the film more than the adults.

Due date is a movie that focuses more on emotion than cheap humor. There are the occasional risque jokes that leave the audience smiling, but the movie as a whole revolves around the emotional connections of the characters and the bond they create with the viewer. Zach galafanakis and Robert Downey Juniors' performances are exceptional. the chemistry they share is undiniable and admiriable. The lovable but dorky Galfanakis is equilized by the serious angry tone of Downey's character. At times the movie loses it's thunder with scenes that seem a little rushed but overall the movie is great. It's nice to see a comedy that has a purpose and moral rather than cheap sex jokes. Due Date delievers on all fronts. Emotion, drama, and comedy. Two thumbs up.
