"Due Date throws two unlikely companions together on a road trip that turns out to be as life-changing as it is outrageous. Expectant first-time father Peter Highman (Robert Downey Jr.) looks forward to his new child's due date five days away. As Peter hurries to catch a flight home from Atlanta to be at his wife's side for the birth, his best intentions go completely awry when an encounter with aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis) forces Peter to hitch a ride with Ethan on a cross-country trip that will ultimately destroy several cars, many friendships and Peter's last nerve."--Container.

Halfway through this film my wife's water broke. We had to go to the hospital, and our daughter was born the next morning. We never did finish the movie, and for some reason I don't remember whether it was even any good, but I always tell couples to watch it on their due date. #truestory

Hilarious! The duo of Downey and Galifianakis works!

First of all, this movie is hilariously funny. Second of all, it contains strong language and some sexual references so don’t watch this movie without parental advisory unless you are around 15 years old or above. I was surprised to see Robert Downey Jr. swearing in a movie. I thought he doesn’t swear in his movies but I guess I am wrong. One of the lessons you can get from this movie is how tough it is to travel in a car from one city to another, especially with an annoying friend. This movie was so realistic; how Peter and Ethan (Robert and Zach) got on the no fly list, then they had to cross country with each other, etc. This movie also shows that friendship can happen even in the toughest moment ever.
Overall, a great movie.

Horrible movie...didn't even make it through the midpoint.

A different version of Planes Trains and Automobiles, but this version is not family friendly unless your family comes from prison. This movie is a heads up to NOT watch The Hangover. I really felt sorry for that poor Pug, I wanted to rescue him, I wished someone had done the same for me.

So bad I could not finish watching it. Maybe if I had 3 or 4 beers and really liked raunchy stupid pointless incidents and dialog I would have finished it. What a waste!

I'm not sure where this all went wrong, as it definitely has some really funny moments, and Robert Downey Jr and Zach Galifianakis are good with the material they've been given. Probably better to watch Planes, Trains and Automobiles over again (and again! and again!) then to watch this.

If you like really dry, subtly quirky, and boldly disturbing humor, this is a great movie for you. I, personally, thought it was hilarious. The humor is not typical, though. Definitely an acquired taste. Approach with caution and an open mind.

Ethan Tremblay: My father loved coffee, and now we loved him as coffee.
