Film Review: ‘Due Date’ a funny bro-mance

Leon Goodrum



EL CAJON–Due date is a film starring Robert Downy Jr as Peter Highman, a very uptight father-to-be whose trip home is disrupted by Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis) a quirky aspiring actor. The duo embark on a road trip to get Peter home in time for the birth of his first-born. 

The film plays out as a 2010 version of the 87′ comedy classic Trains, Planes & Automobiles. Similar to the 80’s classic, it chronicles the journey of an oddly paired couple featuring mishaps, blow ups and charming moments.

Director Todd Phillips again shows his ability to create a “bro-mance” full of the shenanigans featured in past comedies such as Road Trip and The Hangover. The film is definitely worth the watch, perhaps the best comedy I’ve seen this year.
