"Due Date", a comedy with hangover

Due Date
Todd Philips comeback after the "The Hangover" mega-hit was one to look knowing that the starring couple were Robert Downey Jr and Zach Galifaniakis. And the actors are the best of the film by far, saving it from being a huge flop. Not saying that you won't laugh. Just seeing the perennial "out of this world" face of Galifianiakis, or the rage explosions of Downey Jr. would guarantee you considerable doses of laughs. But the problem is that you get the fun in a really awkward film (meaning bizarre), with an anarchic script (meaning inconsistent)  that wants to compile the most unbelievable situations (meaning the plot cannot be believed) in order to create the "biggest" road-trip movie (and a return to "The Hangover" territory). But this time doesn't work as a whole. Don't get me wrong, you will find several funny scenes, and the chemistry of the "odd couple" will get you through the film easily. But don't expect "The Hangover 2". Sadly, it's not here.

SCORE: 5,5/10
