DUE DATE by Todd Phillips

due date - embitterment level - disappointment level

On his way to Los Angeles to attend the birth of his first child with wife Sarah (Michelle Monaghan), uptight Peter Highman (Robert Downey, Jr.) meets man-child Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis) who gets him on the no-fly list, forcing him to drive all the way from Atlanta by car together with Ethan, who carries the ashes of his father in a coffe can to spread them into the Grand Canyon and then wants to go to L.A. to become an actor. If that was not enough, Peter also left his wallet in the plane and has no money and no ID.

The plot of this road movie is familiar (Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Midnight Run), but the execution makes Due Date a pleasure despite the lack of an original story. The gags are coming fast, politically uncorrect, and hit the spot, Downey Jr. is brilliant and likeable as always, and Zach Galifianakis is hideously funny (basically channeling Alan from The Hangover).
