Total Film - 10/22/2010 4 stars out of 5 -- "DUE DATE is a sparkling spin around the old block, boasting ace leads, eye-snagging cameos, spit-your-popcorn laughs and a more marked tenderness than Phillips' all-conquering mega-hit, THE HANGOVER."
Variety - 10/28/2010
"Downey brings jut the right combination of wry humor and brink-of-losing-it unpredictability."
Hollywood Reporter - 10/29/2010
"Galifianakis emerges as a worthy Hardy to Downey's Laurel."
USA Today - 11/05/2010
"It's Downey's signature sarcasm and distinctive slow burn that make the movie....The comic mayhem is enhanced by DUE DATE's offbeat coupling."
A.V. Club - 11/04/2010
"Directing with more focus -- and eventually, more heart -- than he brought to THE HANGOVER, Todd Phillips smartly lets his leads' chemistry power the movie." -- Grade: B
Chicago Sun-Times - 11/03/2010
"[I]t does have some very big laughs."
Sight and Sound - 01/01/2011
"[H]ilarious....This is a big, brash, overblown whoop-and-holler of a film...thoroughly enjoyable..."
Uncut - 04/01/2011 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] road trip and odd-couple bromance with wanton gusts of rowdiness....[If you] found THE HANGOVER a hoot, you'll enjoy this."
Director Todd Phillips re-teams with his break-out HANGOVER star Zach Galifianakis for this road movie concerning a soon-to-be father (played by Robert Downey Jr.) and his cross-country trip to make it back in time for his baby's birth -- with the only roadblock being the dubious passenger (Galifianakis) who's along for the ride. Michelle Monaghan and Jamie Foxx co-star in the Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures production.
