Director Todd Phillips re-teams with his break-out Hangover star Zach Galifianakis for this road movie concerning a soon-to-be father (played by Robert Downey Jr.) and his cross-country trip to make it back in time for his baby's birth -- with the only roadblock being the dubious passenger (Galifianakis) who's along for the ride. Michelle Monaghan and Jamie Foxx co-star in the Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures production. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Downey is not entirely comfortable playing straight man and a little of Galifianakis's antics goes a long way."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Due Date is funny enough, but it should have been funnier."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Due Date is absolutely hilarious! Downey Jr. and Galifianakis are perfect together and the film is wildly entertaining."
‑ Matt Joseph, We Got This Covered
""Due Date" begins with a bad dream and eventually feels like one. It's tired and formulaic and offers only a few mild laughs."
‑ John Hanlon, Big Hollywood
"... Dramatic moments work better than most of the comedy."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"Films like Get Him to the Greek have already done a far superior job with madcap this year."
‑ Laremy Legel, Film.com
"Todd Phillips needs to get off the road."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"As far as road trip comedies go, this isn't the best one. However, it has plenty of funny parts - even outside of the trailer."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Phillips convolutes the adventure with a bizarre mix of unrealized emotional complexity and over-the-top gross-out humor but most viewers will still enjoy the loony ride."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"Downey and Galifianakis start this year's movie countdown to Christmas ho-ho-ho's with a solid round of rousing ha-ha-ha's."
‑ Neil Pond, American Profile
"The most offensive bodily fluid being hurled around in Due Date are the tears that Phillips dishonestly tries to wrest from the audience's eyes."
‑ Dana Stevens, Slate
"As in the most useless sitcoms, the laffs depend entirely on someone behaving as ridiculously as possible, in uninteresting ways devised by the dullest minds."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Aims the slow burn of Robert Downey Jr. at the addled idiocy of Zach Galifianakis in a "Hangover" director's version of "Planes, Trains and Automobiles.""
‑ Roger Moore, Movie Nation
""Due Date" wants to get you attached to its characters, but never finds the emotional resonance to make it happen."
‑ Jeff Beck, Examiner.com
"It runs out of steam before the end comes into view."
‑ Stella Papamichael, Digital Spy
