The Hangover easily was one of the most memorable movies of last year and the fame of Zach Galifianakis blew up with the movie’s popularity. Hangover Director Todd Phillips and Galifianakis reunited this year for Due Date and even if it wasn’t The Hangover it generates a fantastic comedy that will rival as one of the funniest movies of the year. Robert Downey Jr. joins the movie as Peter, an expectant father who after a odd confrontation with Galifianakis’ character ends up on the no-fly list and ends up having to ride with him from Atlanta to Los Angeles. Downey Jr. is a jerk the entire movie but mixes that f-u attitude with a small compassionate side towards Ethan (Galifianakis). Ethan Tremblay is a character that you watch and just plain hate because he just seems to do anything to keep Downey from seeing his child being born but at the same time you realize that he is a compassionate human who does not encounter another person who will stand him for longer than 3 seconds and becomes engulfed in the idea of a friendship with Downey. Their relationship’s progression easily sells the movie and is worth watching. Phillips’ gives us another outrageous movie to laugh at and I highly recommend letting loose with Due Date.
