Movie Review: Due Date Nothing to Race Across Country For - Entertainment Online

Posted: 04 Nov 2010 06:15 PM PDT

Review in a Hurry: A road trip movie starring Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis should be a match made in buddy-flick heaven. Alas, with barely any planes, no trains and only a few automobiles, director Todd Phillips' much-anticipated comedy is an only occasionally funny and mostly bumpy ride.

The Bigger Picture: Peter Highman (Downey) is a tightly wound father-to-be whose wife's due date is only days away. On his way to Los Angeles from Atlanta he meets Ethan Tremblay (Galifianakis). Through a series of wacky events, Tremblay inadvertently gets both men kicked off their plane and put on a "no fly" list...while Peter's luggage, wallet and ID take off without him. Although Peter already despises Ethan, he finds himself stuck with him—he is the dude with a rental car after all, so it's off to L.A. they go.

With both actors coming off very successful hits, Phillips had the right idea casting Downey and Galifianakis in a story that focuses on their interactions. They have great chemistry together.

Like many comedies of late, however, the script (by Phillips, Alan R. Cohen, Alan Freedland and Adam Sztykiel) is too focused on pitting crazy guy vs. crazier guy. While Ethan is the wacky man-child, sporting a bad perm and constantly talking about needing to go pee-pee, Peter is just as immature. (He's the one with the rage issues.) So it's not a shock that both men are a stunted mess and will most likely learn a lot as they travel from cheap hotels to the Mexican border. And if the film had more gut-busters and actual jokes, these character types wouldn't be an issue. But after the third time we hear Peter threaten to take out Ethan via a household appliance, the gag gets old. Worse is hearing Ethan ponder that Shakespeare was pronounced "Shakesbeard" and he was a pirate. Random goofiness only begets more tired jokes.

Speaking of tired, the time has come to recognize that as talented as Downey is, maybe he should stop taking scripts that are half-baked like this one and quit relying on his I'll-just-wing-it approach. Yes, it served him well on the first Iron Man, but not so much with Sherlock Holmes, Iron Man II and now, Due Date.

Thankfully, a small part of the movie—that isn't just Downey and Galifianakis—features solid cameos by Jamie Foxx, Juliette Lewis and Danny McBride. McBride, in particular, is in the funniest scene, playing a currency exchange teller who won't release $500 from a wire transaction. His über-machoness makes for a genuinely hilarious clash with Downey's rageaholic ways. Maybe they should do the sequel together?

The 180—a Second Opinion: As proven in The Hangover, Phillips knows how to shoot gorgeous, colorful films. Case in point, a stop at the Grand Canyon is sort of awe-inspiring and, dare we even say it, touching?

Spanish filmmaker revived movie industry after war - Chicago Sun-Times

Posted: 15 Nov 2010 02:00 AM PST

LUIS GARCIA BERLANGA | 1921-2010

November 15, 2010

MADRID -- Luis Garcia Berlanga, a Spanish filmmaker, who criticized the military dictatorship under Gen. Francisco Franco, died Saturday at 89.

Mr. Berlanga had Alzheimer's disease and died at his home in Madrid, according to Spain's film academy, of which he was an honorary president and co-founder.

He was credited with helping to revive the country's movie industry after the civil war.

Mr. Berlanga was born in Valencia. He wrote and directed his first short film in 1948. In 1951, he made his first feature film, "Esa Pareja Feliz," in collaboration with Juan Antonio Bardem, father of Hollywood actor Javier Bardem.

"Along with [Luis] Bunuel, he is one of the most important filmmakers of all time," said Alex de la Iglesia, president of Spain's film academy.

His 1953 film "Bienvenido, Mister Marshall" explored Spain's hopes that the U.S. would help the country restore democracy and prosperity as it had in much of Europe after World War II.

He was critical of Franco, the victor in Spain's civil war, and had to devise a film language to beat the Spain's official censors. He said Franco insisted on viewing his films before allowing their release.

Mr. Berlanga is survived by a son, Fernando. AP
