In Review: Due Date

I have a general hatred for movies where the domino effect of bad shit happens to someone who is a legitimate person because of someone who should have probably been choked out at birth. This is one of those movies...but I actually did not want to rip my eyes out of their sockets (well ok, maybe twice, but that's it).

Peter (Robert Downey Jr.) plays a guy trying to get to LA to his preggo wife in time for her c-section due date and gets kicked off an airplane thus having to travel across  the country with a wannabe actor who is also trying to get to LA, Ethan (Zach Galifanakis). Of course it is not just point A to point B. A couple of times they probably should have died or even went to jail.  I won't tell you if they made it home or if Peter kills Ethan, but there are some close calls. I don't really want to give anything away, but there were definitely funny parts that were not in the preview.

Robert Downey Jr. is super hot in this movie. I have obviously thought this previously, but for some reason RDJ in a comedy is super sexy. Or maybe it was just him being put beside Zach Galifanakis...that is one ugly dude.

The movie was funny, unbelievable and fun. I would recommend it.

Verdict: 4.0 Stars


Also...if you have seen the movie you will be interested to hear that Ethan's Two and a Half Men fan site is can see it here.  You can also be friends with Ethan on Facebook here. I would not make this shit up people.
