Due Date is a tale that starts off in a post 9-11 American airport and it's about two strangers who face the consequences of using words like "bomb" while on a plane. They are kicked off the plane and one of the dudes, played by Robert Downey Jr, needs to get back to Cali to meet with his expecting wife before the baby pops out her vajay. Unlucky or lucky for him, depending on how you look at it, he meets up with a weirdo bizarro fat bearded creature of a man played by Zach Galifiankis. These two people, complete opposites of each other, end up traveling together back to California. And yea, you guessed it, hilarity ensues.
Both Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifiankis are really fun actors to watch on the big screen and I had fairly high expectations with this one. Not that I was expecting the Citizen Kane of comedies or anything, but I thought the combo of these guys in a movie together would be great. There are a few great moments but I guess overall it's nothing too memorable.
The whole film is based on the relationship of two totally different people and how they must try and deal with each other to make it to their destination. Most of the film is them arguing with each other. Rather than me talking about it, let me just illustrate how the film plays out...
If you think the above plot might interest you and you also enjoy scenes involving a cute french bulldog, falling asleep behind the wheel, marijuana, border jumping and a fathers remains contained in a coffee can then I may have to suggest this movie for you. Otherwise, there's not much to see here.
It's not a secret that Star Wars Episode 1 is not only a horrible Star Wars movie, it's just a horrible movie in general. Sitting through it is a task, it's so dense and filled with boring political plot points, bad acting and computer graphics. It feels more like an ILM portfolio showcasing CG techniques rather than a film.
I can remember as a kid watching it for the first time and leaving the theater confused. I thought maybe I wasn't watching as careful as I should have been? I dunno what it was but I felt like I missed something because, its Star Wars, isn't it supposed to be good? I thought, "Did I just black out for most of that movie? Was I daydreaming the whole time?" I begged my parents to take me again, so I could see what I surely missed but they wouldn't take me. I had to wait for it to come out on video when I finally realized that it wasn't just me, this shit really does just suck.
