Pretty dreadful. Poor Robert Downey. Poor dog. This is one of those movies where the word ejaculate is supposed to pass for witty humour. Not a laugh in sight. Painful.
What you see is what you get - ok at best.
Sometimes you need a movie to just be light and entertaining and this one qualifies. Don't expect "film" and enjoy this movie for what it is.
It was ok. Love Zach Galifianakis.
Poor mans Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Zach Galifianakis is nowhere near the class of John Candy. Don't bother.
This was hilarious. Takes you on a great voyage. Great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!and funny
"Dad - you were like a father to me..."
Didn't really enjoy this movie. It's a poor "remake" of Planes, Trains and Automobiles, which leaves it for dead. Very hard to develop any feelings for the Galafianakis character. Would not recommend it.
Only managed to watch the first 30 minutes, had to switch off it was so bad
I did not enjoy The Hangover (at all!) so I watched this film with very low expectations. I was more than pleasantly suprised, as from the beginning I was laughing out loud!!! This was one of the funniest movies I have ever watched. Robert Downey Jr was brilliant (the reason I watched this to begin with as I am a huge fan) although Zach Galifianakis, who I have not enjoyed a performance by since the TV show Tru Calling, was also suprisingly brilliant. Perhaps all he needed was a good script.
Enjoyable, makes you laugh good one to watch to make you feel good
Found this movie frustrating and unfunny! Reminded me of National Lampoon where everything that could go wrong, did go wrong with a journey across the USA.
The 2 main characters in this movie where so funny. Couldn't stop laughing the whole way through. Would definately watch this one again.
A great light hearted comedy, well worth watching!
Very slow, but funny in parts
Bit of a dud. Not bad but I wouldn't recommend it. Occasionally funny.
Due date was so funny!! We haven't all sat on the lounge and laughed so much for too long. Fantastic. Highly recommended.
My Wife was not overly fussed on this one, yet i seemed to find myself having a chuckle, So i think that this one is aimed more for the boys, who's up for a ROAD-TRIP!!!!!!
Expected this to be hilarious but was sadly dissapointed.
It was OK, very much in The Hangover style of comedy. Zach G. was good and probably suited the role although not sure Rober Downey Jr was suited for his part.
Watched it when it was first released and found it painful and annoying. Watched it a second time as a tv background. Watched it a third time and really enjoyed it. It took three times before I appreciated the comedic talent of Zach G and the acting brilliance of Robert D Jnr. Funny if you just let go and let RDJ and ZG take you to LA.
Pretty funny movie. Great in some parts. Very wired story line however, Zac was hilarious as always and that made me want to keep watching.
Loved this movie very funny
Extremely slow to start, we almost turned it off a number of times. Gets better from about 1/3 into the movie and develops into a number of quite funny bits. Certainly not one of the worst movies I have seen but a long way from being great. 2 1/2 stars
Very disappointing. Total waste of Downey Jr. Script appalling and derivative; direction uninspired.
such a disappointment considering the cast and a copy of planes, trains and automobiles but very badly done, nothing funny about this one at all
A few laughs to be had - especially if you ever appreciated Cheech & Chong,,,,
I quite enjoyed this movie, predictable, but a few laughs to be had.
It does have its moments but was pretty disappointing. It's hard to get one of these 'trip' flicks wrong so I can't imagine how it turned out so mediocre with the talent in it. It was also really just completely unbelievable. My husband walked out half way through to do the dishes....'nuff said!
Saw the movie a few months ago and it was far more funnier then this time round. For my husband it was the first time he's seen it and he didn't enjoy it at all.
funny movie, lots of laughs.
Had its moments where it was genuinely funny, but the moments where it was a little boring and predictable were more frequent. Worth a watch, but not one to buy and add to the collection.
Really enjoyed this one, had a really good laugh. May even add it to my collection :)
pretty crappy picture,expected it to be good considering the actors in it but was disappointed for sure.
Saw the reviews and thought ok not going to like it and ended up really enjoying it! I had tears a few times like the incident where they drank the contents of the coffee tin. Hilarious
Very poor attempt at planes trains and automobiles re-make.
Average movie and predictable.
Silly but still enjoyable. Didn't have to think just watch and laugh.
I found the character - Ethan - really frustrating!!! not a big fan of this movie:-(
love it funny alittle bit over the top still good movie
So funny this one! Love that fat guy he is so funny..Robert Downey Jnr can be rather serious at times..
Awful! Couldnt sit through it all. Not funny just stupid, especially the part about the coffee. As if that would ever happen.
Good movie but i couldn't watch it properly as it kept stopping alot.
The movie title throws you off a bit, whereas it's not really a movie about someone having a baby, as such, but more of a raod trip movie, in which a man, Robert Downey Jr has to get back to L.A before his wife gives birth, but has many misadventures on the way.
I put this on for 5 mins then switched to TV. Not funny or even interesting. I have no idea why this has an average of 3 stars?
Funny light hearted-even the annoying character was likeable!
Two very different characters meeting by chance. Have to work together and eventually become "friends". Very funny and enjoyed it immensely.
I thought this movie was really funny (I'm surprised by some of the reviews). It gave us a good laugh. It's very silly, but also very funny. Love Zach Galifianakis....he cracks me up!! If you like the Hangover movies.....you should like this one.
Hilarious film. Especially the scene with the annoying guy in the back of the pick up truck lol.
We gave up on this fairly early in the piece.
laugh out loud funny in some bits of this movie zack has a really dry sense of humour
Not as funny as I thought this movie would be.
Boring. The script was all there but just lacked spark. Meant to be a comedy, Only once did I laugh. The role suited Robert Downy Jr well.
Very predictable movie. Dissapointing
Expected more from this movie, at times was a bit annoying, but when Steve Carrell and Zach G got together it was Comedy Gold! :D
I quite enjoyed this 'lighthearted' dry in parts comedy .. don't think I've giggled so much for ages worth a look on a otherwise dull Friday night !
Funny and original whilst being something of a 'remake' of Planes, Trains and Auto-mobiles. Good for a laugh.
That's an One& a half hours of my life i'm never going to get back. I loved him in the hangover movies but i struggled to even laugh through this!!
This movie is so suited to Robert Downey Jr's quirky nature. I can see why he was tempted. An entertaining film!
How can these two great actors make such a load of rubbish....did they read the script? Unfortunatelt there are just too many films now that are a complete waste of time and this is one of them.
Very funny I could easily watch this one over and over again
I found this movie more frustrating than funny and lost interest in it. Not my cup of tea.
Meh.... average. funny in parts and I expected more from it. But saved me from complete boredom.
I don't know why but I thought this movie would be funnier than it was. I was disappointed.
Didn't watch it right through because it got too bogged down. Not funny and a poor knock- off of Trains, Planes and Automobiles
I didn't really enjoy this movie much. Found it quite annoying overall. A few funny parts but certainly would not have missed much if I didn't watch it.
This could have been a good movie, but it missed the mark badly!!!! It was a great story-line, although similar to many others, it had enough of its own originality to stay apart. The 'humour' was pathetic!! I think I laughed a couple of times. Gross behaviour does not necessarily equate with humour. When will the Yanks learn this??
not too bad ,quite funny in places,worth the watch
Very funny if you like silly humour (as opposed to clever humour). Luckily we were in exactly the right mood for it and found it entertaining.
quite liked it. not exactly fresh or unseen plot, but execution was pretty decent, not too much overacting. credit most likely has to go to two leads.
loved it, watched it several time, just got better...
Love this movie, certainly make my worst day(s) looks a bit brighter!
a completely unfunny, annoying and embarrassing attempt at a comedy- didn't even bother watching it all.
this is one of the crappyest movies i have EVER! seen. Wouldnt waste my time watching it
Loved this movie funny from start to end and totally unpredictable, a must watch for those that like a good laugh.
Quite funny. Weird humour, but good.
almost like a Planes, trains and Automobiles, been done before but still funny.
I did enjoy this movie, although I found Ethan's character annoying. An easy movie to watch.
Typical American nonsensical stuff throughout,
Why did Robert Downey Jnr get involved with this stinker. Very unpleasant. The least enjoyable road trip movie I've ever seen.
Robert Downey Jr is about the only thing that saves this cringe-inducing buddy comedy...
Very funny, a bit to adult for the "tweens" but very funny for mum and dads.
This show was so stupid I had to laugh or I would've cried.
Really enjoyed this one, very funny.
Extremely funny and a cool movie.
High-strung father-to-be Peter Highman is forced to hitch a ride with aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay on a road trip in order to make it to his child's birth on time. Hilarious!
GETS OFF TO A SLOW START, BUT ENDS UP BEING QUITE A FUNNY, SILLY MOVIE.
Funny, Funny Movie. Recommend this one!!!
I was so pumped to finally see this movie :D Only laughed once or twice though :(
was a expecting this to be really good and was VERY disappointed! only laughed a few times!. I would not bother watching! its too slow and does not flow that well.
this film was slow and not that funny...the only good thing about it was the dog, 'sunny'.
Has the worst lame humour that just kept missing the mark. Robert Downy Junior what were you thinking? Don't touch this with a barge pole. Bad, bad, bad.
Loved it. Very enjoyable movie if you want a few laughs. But I wouldn't want a friend like that though. LOL.
This was a great movie, my wife and I both enjoyed it. It is very funny in parts. There has been a number of Road Trip Movies, this is up amoung the better ones. Would certainly recommended it
Funny. Poignant. Sick. Everything you'll love if you liked The Hangover (but don't expect The Hangover)
Made me laugh really hard a few times but an average movie overall. Worth a watch but nothing special.
a funny journey but it ended the way you'd expect,happily,but i give it 7.5 outta 10
OMG, what a load of garbage and drivel, I have a great sense of humour and I think I laughed twice. I the whole thing was simply stupidity, and love Downey Jr, but not in this.
I'm a big Downey JR fan but this is his lamest movie EVER! Contrived storyline, boring and slow, crappy dialogue and definately not funny. Usually Downey's movies are quality but not this one, its embarrassingly lame and belongs on the shame pile.
I just watched "due date" on dvd... with robert downey jr.... DONT BOTHER... it is the biggest lot of drivel i have ever seen. talk about naf, did they forget to put the "never to be seen" sticker on the can or what??
skipped thru it to see if it got better..... nah, .... it got worse.
I would have to say worst film i have ever seen Robert downey in :(
Loved this. So much better than the shorts they've been showing. Laughed a lot and cringed a lot.
