A couple years back while vacationing on the central coast, I wanted to see a movie in San Luis Obispo. The choices were limited, so I chose the comedy Due Date (2010) expecting to occupy some of my time that evening and little more. Normally featuring a dog or other pet in a movie is a warning for me to stay the heck away. Based on the advanced marketing, and the dog, I was anticipating a bad, boring, banal and stupid movie. Instead I got a great little comedy that really works! Zach Galifianakis and Robert Downey Jr. have good comedic chemistry, and work well together as a sort of modern-day Abbott and Costello.
This is no high art movie. It received generally negative reviews, so you are warned. I say they’re all a bunch of party-poopers. I had a good time with this fun flick, and think you will too — but watch the trailer first.
