Hasn't got the strength to keep its premises by resorting to the use of music and heavy handed sound effects. and it's a shame because it could have been so so so good... But even if you forgive the music and the sound, you just won't forgive that terrible terrible terrible ending

I found "Due Date" to be a real hodge-podge mess of a movie, with just enough actor-driven comedic moments to almost make it worth watching. I saw it for free at the theater I used to work at, but had I paid full price on opening weekend, I'd have been very disappointed. <p> Its seems to me like Todd Phillips was sitting around and asked, "Well, we've got a couple of months before we start filming the next 'Hangover.' Do you think Zach's busy?" There is absolutely no cohesion to the script; Downey Jr's character is written really unevenly, being set up as a soon-to-be father that will do anything to get home, but peppering the film with outbursts of completely unlikeable, bastard-ish behavior. Galifiankis goes from being portrayed as a flamboyant gay stereotype, to a deeply-troubled loner, to a cliched stoner, and back again. Jamie Foxx shows up completely out of the blue for about 5 minutes, gets set up as being a bit of an antagonist, and then gets dropped completely. If any genre can get away with a COMPLETE LACK of character development, its comedy... but "Due Date" pushes that notion to the brink. The forced monologues of intended character background/depth just fall completely flat and then get abandoned moments after they leave the actors' mouths. If the movie has any one strength it is that Downey and Galifiankis are just good enough comedically to carry some of the bits to laughter(like the pot-smoking bit). <p> I'm still looking forward to "The Hangover 2," but "Due Date" is a lazy effort that barely warrants a cable-TV viewing.

Amongst your links to Aussie films you should include "Red Hill". The more people who take an interest in this movie, the better. Long live Aussie genre films!

Didn't work. Wasn't scared at all. Good premise though.

WITH ELI ROTH'S NAME NOT SURPRISINGLY LINGERING AROUND THE CORNER. LAME AS FUCK

It was just overall lame but Robert Downey Jr. is one of the few actors around who CAN punch a kid in the stomach and still be the hero you root for. It's a bad movie, but not "argh! I HATTEEE THIS!!!" type of make you angry. If you see it on TV and happen to watch the scene where Downey is in a room with two annoying kids, watch that scene. That's as much as I recommend it.

Not counting Saturday and Sunday, it'll probably make about 70 million dollars in about 5 days of release. That's some really fucked up math to qualify that as a bomb. Unless you're completely delusional, that is.

The box office gross of Tangled in it's first five days and the total gross of Kick Ass, I mean. Those are related because...?
