Due Date
2010
Days before his pregnant wife's due date, Los Angeles architect Peter is about to fly home from Atlanta when a series of unfortunate incidents land him on the "no-fly" list, forcing him to hitch a ride across the country with an irritating slacker.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

I can deal with Zach Galifianakis being so irritating (even though the movie's clear subtext is that Robert Downey Jr. is worse to be around). I can deal with the unmistakable similarity with Planes, Trains & Automobiles, which we could dismiss for being twenty years old if Due Date didn't seem to borrow so much from it. What I can't accept is that this just isn't very funny. There are a handful of small laughs, and would be a lot of big ones if the trailer hadn't spoiled all of them. Want to see something funny and save time? Watch the highlight reel and skip the movie.
