Less raunchy than Hangover, but still edgy, mature.

Funny here and there, but overall it was pretty much a floppy movie.

Due Date wasn't as crazy, wacky or funny as I expected it to be. The characters aren't that interesting, a lot of jokes miss and above all it's not as good as Phillips and Galifanakis' The Hangover. A word of advice is dont go into Due Date with the high expectations I had. It wasn't that great but it's dumb forgetable fun thats kept alive by its better jokes.

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 through the US. The film can rely on Downey Jr. for being a wonderfully arrogant snob, while Galifianakis is basically just his own, weird self once again. That does create quite a few laughs, while other parts feel as if you've seen them all before (and better). They even tried to add the emotional depth of "T, p and a" by giving the funny character a tragic back story. That only partially works. While the result is entertaining enough, it never manages to reach you on an emotional level like Candy and Martin did 25 years ago. And the laughs were bigger back then, too.
