Movie Summary

Director:
Todd Phillips
Released:
2010
Rating:
R
Due Date begins when high-powered Los Angeles business executive Peter Highman (Robert Downey Jr.) gets stuck in Atlanta during a snowstorm that grounds all flights just days before his pregnant wife's due date, and he hitches a ride across the country with slacker Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis). As Peter desperately tries to get home, he must deal with Ethan's laid-back attitude, numerous delays and several mishaps in this road trip comedy. Jamie Foxx co-stars.

Metacritic Score

    So infuriating is Ethan that Due Date very nearly loses us, too, at the outset, but over time, the bearded boor manages to win everyone over, audience included.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    So the movie probably contains enough laughs to satisfy the weekend audience. Where it falls short is in the characters and relationships.

    Los Angeles Times Betsy Sharkey

    This is a disappointing turn coming from Phillips, particularly since "The Hangover" was such a fresh, bracing brew of black comic fun.
