In Atlanta on business, straight-laced and overly analytical architect Peter Highman is flying home to Los Angeles and his wife Sarah for the imminent birth of their first child. However, traveling by plane no longer becomes an option when he and a fellow passenger, aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay, are kicked off the plane, which was caused by Ethan's social inappropriateness, due to being generally unaware, exacerbated by Peter's temper at a situation against his sensibilities. Peter, who ends up without money or his suitcase, is forced to accept Ethan's offer of a shared car ride to Los Angeles, Ethan who is looking for his big acting break. For Peter, this partnership is one made in hell, but he feels he has no other choice. Peter obviously wants to take as direct and as quick a route as possible, while he is at Ethan's mercy as the person with the driver's license, car rental and money. They get into one misadventure after another on this trip, with the same issue at each ... Written by

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.

I agree with many of the previous commentators that it is as a remake of PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES that this film truly stinks. John Candy must have been rotating in his grave (with great difficulty, I would imagine) when this was premiered. But this is awful on so many levels. The acting is unbelievably bad. Did no one tell Downey Jr. that he was in a comedy? Or can he just not do funny? Galifianakis does not act at all. And why should he? After all he sports a perm and a beard and is carrying a lapdog. Surely that's funny enough to carry two films. The writing is atrocious. Some of the crude things the characters come out with are really offensive and hateful. And you're supposed to care about what happens to them? What was worst for me was the camera work and the editing. The camera angles are all over the place: there are hand-helds, helicopter shots and other extravagant shots edited in a fast, gritty way that would make a thriller look overdone, never mind a comedy. It made watching DUE DATE actually really annoying and irritating. There is nothing remotely funny or enjoyable about DUE DATE. Any 10-minute fail compilation on YOUTUBE will give you a lot more pleasure than this film.
