One Sentence: You already saw the whole movie.

Nudity: None

I hate it when my girlfriend is right about a movie.  The whole time since I got the invite to the screening.  "It's not going to be good," and  "it looks horrible and uncomfortable." I backed this movie up, saying, it's going to be more than the previews, it's got Downey Jr and Zach in it, trust me.  That night I had to buy her oatmeal raisin cookies to make up for taking her to go see Due Date, I hate oatmeal raisin cookies, but they were justified.  I am sorry Jenn, will you ever forgive me?

You do not have to go pay to see Due Date, why?  Because you have already seen every joke in the movie except for the 2 pot jokes during the marketing explosion that has been shot at you for the last 3 months.  It's not like you are going to see this movie for the plot and story line, because you know what that is too.  You are going because you hope it's a hidden sleeper comedy like Old School and The Hangover.  That there are so many more jokes not in the trailers that they can't show on TV, sadly that is not the case.  Due Date is nothing but awkwardness, everything you saw in the previews on TV and the internet, and one slightly funny pot scene.  

This is not a renter of a movie even.  It is completely unnecessary, go see Megamind this weekend, or if you are lucky enough to have it in your city, the new Drafthouse Film, Four Lions.  This movie is not worth your time at all.  Which is sad because I had such high hopes, and am now broke due to the shortage on raisins and the cookies I had to buy.
