The odd couple redux
For those of you who have never seen Planes, Trains and Automobiles (your next trip to the DVD rental!), here’s another version of the obsessively- organized man who has to team up with a slob to get across the country. Due Date would have been genius if the roles had been cast against type, but some funny moments aside, Downey and Galifianakis, talented as they are, have no chance to surprise anyone.
Due Date | Directed by Todd Phillips (USA 2010) with Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis. Opens November 4.
