Due Date (2010)



Critic Consensus: Shamelessly derivative and only sporadically funny, Due Date doesn't live up to the possibilities suggested by its talented director and marvelously mismatched stars.

Movie Info

Director Todd Phillips re-teams with his break-out Hangover star Zach Galifianakis for this road movie concerning a soon-to-be father (played by Robert Downey Jr.) and his cross-country trip to make it back in time for his baby's birth -- with the only roadblock being the dubious passenger (Galifianakis) who's along for the ride. Michelle Monaghan and Jamie Foxx co-star in the Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures production. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Due Date

All Critics (195) | Top Critics (55)

Oscar-nominated actor Robert Downey Jr. usually has a knack for picking good movies. But Due Date is not one of them.

September 11, 2017 | Rating: D | Full Review…

Downey is not entirely comfortable playing straight man and a little of Galifianakis's antics goes a long way.

January 3, 2011 | Rating: C | Full Review…

It's a tough double act, but the film pulls it off with great confidence and some major laughs.

November 24, 2010 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

[Phillips'] talent lies in the comedy of embarrassment and while this isn't quite up to the standards of The Hangover, it's not a bad example.

November 24, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

These guys can't buy a laugh.

November 8, 2010 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

It's a little crude to see the character's weirdness being exploited for drama after so readily being jabbed for cheap laughs in the first half

November 7, 2010 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Audience Reviews for Due Date


Due Date has a good deal of funny moments and works thanks to the talent of its two stars, especially Galifianakis, who is really obnoxious at first but soon gains our sympathy.

Zach Galifianakis' giant, slobbering puppy routine just makes you want to smack his nose with a 2x4, but then he throws out this really moving crying scene that seems charged by the depths of his soul. That's basically the dynamic between the humorless, responsible, soon-to-be-dad and the infuriating, good-hearted, actor-wannabe in "Due Date," and it works. RDJ plays a great, blasé straight man, and the budding father/overgrown-son relationship is filled with triumphs and laughs. But alas, Michelle Monaghan is, once again, a mere supportive woman.

Zach Galifinakus and Robert Downey Jr work off perfectly hand in hand with the comedy and the whole movie was full of unexpected moments that made it more funny every second of the film
