Coming Attraction: Due Date

Anybody remember Planes, Trains, and Automobiles? The movie that had an uptight guy traveling with an annoying fat guy? Well, Due Date is basically an updated version of Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. Robert Downey, Jr. plays the uptight guy and Zach Galifinaminadingdong plays the annoying fat guy (update: Zach’s last name is apparently spelled “Galifianakis”). The uptight guy is forced to hitch a ride with the annoying fat guy so that he can get to his laboring wife in time for the arrival of his baby.

Due Date co-stars Juliette Lewis, Alan Arkin, and Jamie Foxx. Comedy director Todd Phillips (The Hangover, Starsky and Hutch, Old School) directs.

Robert Downey, Jr. showed his comedic chops in Tropic Thunder, and Zach Galifianakis stole the show in The Hangover. I would consider them both to be fine comedic actors. The “odd couple” premise and the “road trip” premise both seem pretty tired, but the trailer is pretty funny and seems like it might have breathed some new life into the genre. I’ll give it a “2” on the Potential Meter.

    I always get a laugh out of the original, no matter how many times I’ve seen it. It will be interesting to see how this one lives up to Planes, Trains and Automobiles.
