I just had the strangest dream. It's Friday. We're at the hospital. But it's not a hospital, it's a, a, a forest of sorts. And I know that because right next to you there's a bear. A grizzly, cooling his feet in a stream. And all of a sudden, you begin to deliver, and I can't get to you. But the bear can. And the next thing I know, he is holding our beautiful baby boy. And here's where it gets odd. Uh, he chews the cord. But, strangely, I'm okay with it. That's gotta be a good sign.

"Due Date" is a disappointing and uneven comedy that is more silly and stupid than funny. The plot uses a similar storyline of "Dinner for the Schmucks" with a straight man that meets a schmuck and is forced to stay with him to achieve a goal. I had great expectation that "Due Date" would be a great film, but the situations that are supposed to be funny never work and I laughed only in a couple of scenes. My vote is five.
