Movie Review: Due Date

Due Date
Director: Todd Phillips
Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Zach Galifianakis, Michelle Monaghan, Juliette Lewis, Jamie Foxx
Runtime: 95 mins
Rating: R
Released: November 5th 2010

Robert Downey Jr. stars in this comedy alongside Zach Galifianakis as two men who meet up at an airport and travel across country by car in an effort to get home before Downey's on-screen wife gives birth.  One catastrophe after another ensues with hilarity as these two men, who would never be friends under different circumstances, cope with one another's shortcomings and one's penchant for disasters.

The DVD copy we had indicated a PG13 rating but the movie itself is rated R18 with good reason.  There is a lot of profanity and sexual references within that warrant the rating.  It is funny but definitely not a buyer for me.  Had we (my family) known it's correct rating, we would not have bought (nor rented) it.  We gave it away.

Rated 3/5
