Todd Phillips DUE DATE Starring Zach Galifianakis, Robert Downey, Jr.

Definitely has a Hangover vibe:

When I saw the thread title and read Todd Phillips, for some reason I thought Todd Solondz and was really excited. I'm still excited as a huge Galifianakis fan, but just imagine that cast in a Solondz film.

I think I might actually like Zach Galifianakis in films better if he didn't play a complete doofus (or, failing that, had limited screen time).

This looks awesome. Sweet cast, RDJ is awesome and Galifianakis is my second favorite comedian, so I'm in.

For some reason I thought Todd Phillips had more flops than just School for Scoundrels. (Road Trip -> Old School -> Starsky and Hutch -> School for Scoundrels -> Hangover)


Looks amusing, could be good.

RDJ looks old in those opening scenes.
I'll see it.

I like both the leads, but that did nothing for me.

This reminds me of Planes, Trains and Automobiles minus the Planes and Trains.

Yes, it might indeed. From the Sugar and Half Nelson creative couple no less. for the Ida Maria tune in the trailer also.

Thanks for posting that.

I actually chuckled (it was only a teaser) more during this trailer than I did during practically the entire run time of the highly over-rated, but has to be in my collection because people always want to see it when they come over, The Hangover.

Well, Due Date looks awful. However, It's Kind of a Funny Story looks pretty good.

I saw the preview for this before Inception. I didn't laugh once. All of the lines by ZG fell completely flat.
Downey looked bored.

I think it looks hilarious. Seen this trailer in the theater a few times and it always gets alot of laughs.

I loved the opening sequence of the trailer, when Zach tells Roberts character, "my dad would never do that..... he loved me."

39% on Rotten Tomatoes. Not good at all.
