Family-Faith Film Review: Due Date
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting
Due Date: Sour road comedy pairing a disaster-prone aspiring actor (Zach Galifianakis) on his way to Hollywood and an uptight architect (Robert Downey Jr.) rushing home to Los Angeles for the birth of his first child. A misunderstanding sees them both kicked off their flight from Atlanta, placed on the no-fly list and forced to drive to the West Coast together. Among the eccentricities attributed to Galifianakis’ somewhat effeminate man-boy, in director and co-writer Todd Phillips’ frequently unpleasant odd-couple odyssey, are a taste for marijuana and a habit of lulling himself to sleep via self-gratification, a daily indulgence that the close proximity of his new companion does nothing to curb. Drug trafficking and use, masturbation, about a half-dozen uses of profanity, pervasive rough and much crude language, some sexual jokes and references. O — morally offensive. (R) 2010
