Due Date

The latest film from comedy heavyweight Todd Philips, writer and director of last years hit The Hangover, comes the new comedy starring Zach Galifinakis and Robert Downey Jr. Downey plays an expecting father put on the no-fly list in Atlanta, a day before his wife is due in L.A. He catches a ride with Galifinakis and his masturbating bulldog. My colleague Julian and I have followed Galifinakis's career a while before The Hangover and we were pumped to see another awkward and insane character. I was surprised to see that Galifinakis did not have the same effect on me as The Hangover and it really seemed that Philips was saving the good material for The Hangover 2, out next summer. Downey brought an unsurprising charming and witty protagonist as usual and having you rooting for him the whole time. The film was a silly dude comedy that made me laugh out loud, but was not as much of a revolutionary comedy as The Hangover.
My review: B
