Due Date (Review)

           This fall, Robert Downey Jr. returned to the comedy field with his new film, Due Date. The film is about a Peter Highman (Downey Jr.) that is forced to take a road trip to Los Angeles with the lucrative Ethan Tremblay (played by Zach Galifinakis) in order to witness the birth of his daughter.

           I was happy to see Robert Downey Jr. doing another comedy after I found that he was a riot in Tropic Thunder. Jamie Foxx got back to his comedic routes too which I appriciated. I also found it kind of ironic that Downey Jr’s character says that he has never touched drugs (sorry for the little spoiler) but in real life, Downey Jr. has had lots of drug problems.

          The plot of the movie is similar in many ways to The Hangover in the sense that there is a road trip that involves drugs at one point. I really think that Zach Galifinakis needs to do another sort of movie before the media stereotypes him as “The Road Trip Guy” because I have seen his less populor work with more different/original plots and I find that he is laugh out loud in this, not to say he was bad in this though!

           Overall, I find that Due Date is one of the best comedies of the year. Not the best, but up there. If you liked The Hangover, then you’ll probably enjoy this

Verdict: 8.5
