Movie Review — Due Date
This movie was a breath of fresh air, which is a strange statement because Robert Downey, Jr. spent most of the film feeling suffocated by Zach Galifianakis’. It was light-hearted and funny with just the right amount of gross-out humor. Galifianakis and Downey drive across the country together after they end up on a no-fly list. Under no other circumstances would these two men hang out, which is why the film is so great. Downey is a tightly wound guy who is a bit of prick, and Galifianakis is a sweetheart who likes everyone but is liked by no one. I don’t think this movie could have survived without these two actors, and it’s worth seeing just for their performance. Plus, have I mentioned I’m in love with Robert Downey?
