Trailer: Due Date is The Hangover-iest movie since The Hangover


15th July 2010

First trailer for Todd Phillips' new comedy, and guess what: it's mismatched oddball road trip tiiiime!

I've not heard much about Due Date, other than it's by Todd Phillips, the guy behind The Hangover, and stars Robert Downey Jr and Zach Galifianakis, star of The Hangover. Now that we've seen the first trailer, I can confirm: it's a lot like The Hangover.

I love Zach Galifianakis: his stand-up is awesome and massively underrated (thanks for the Jimmy Carr stand-up DVD for Christmas again, auntie) and he was the breakout star of last year. In Due Date, it looks like he's playing the exact same character - the emotionally off-centre, socially inept retard - but you'll hear no complaints from me. His first and last lines are probably the best I've heard in any trailer this year.

Phillips could probably do with a break from directing movies about strange men bonding during stressful situations, but hey - if you're good at something, you should keep doing it. That's why I became the regional squash champion at the age of 16, and it's why I'll destroy you if we ever step on the court together. You. Will. Not. Win.
