Consensus: Shamelessly derivative and only sporadically funny, Due Date doesn't live up to the possibilities suggested by its talented director and marvelously mismatched stars.

Downey is not entirely comfortable playing straight man and a little of Galifianakis's antics goes a long way.

Due Date is funny enough, but it should have been funnier.

Oscar-nominated actor Robert Downey Jr. usually has a knack for picking good movies. But Due Date is not one of them.

Galifianakis keeps the laughs coming in the hilarious, banter-filled first half, but as Due Date descends into explosions, car-chases and awkwardly inserted moments of poignancy, it loses its wit and pacing in favor of predictable stunts.

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.

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.

Due Date is absolutely hilarious! Downey Jr. and Galifianakis are perfect together and the film is wildly entertaining.

This is pretty much Planes, Trains, and Automobiles for a new generation, except this film is quite as funny or well-made. It's not a remake of that film,… More

Zach Galifianakis' giant, slobbering puppy routine just makes you want to smack his nose with a 2x4, but then he throws out this really moving crying scene… More

They have to admit: It's basically a remake of "Trains, planes and automobiles" as two very unlike strangers get thrown together for a road trip… More
Michael Edwards
Zach Galifinakus and Robert Downey Jr work off perfectly hand in hand with the comedy and the whole movie was full of unexpected moments that made it more funny… More
Joe McCall
You get the feeling that these men genuinely despise each other in real life, it wrecks the whole movie.
