Due Date

January 7, 2011


I’m a big fan of Robert Downey Jr and to some extent Zach Galifianakis, so it was with some elevated expectations that I dragged myself along to use some about-to-expire movie vouchers and kill some rare downtime over the Christmas break.

Confused but Fun

Downey Jr puts in a solid performance (not exemplary though) and Galifianakis puts in his usual curious and comfortably-wrong repartee (of which I don’t imagine tiring anytime soon) . Whilst the movie is well paced and generally curious (though not hilarious), the writer seems confused about what he wants it to be – a comedy, a drama, a road movie or a romp.  Ultimately it’s fairly well balanced mix of the three.
