"Due Date" - {Blu-ray} - (Wayne)
Reviewer:
Wayne Klein
Studio: Warner
Genre:
Comedy
Release Date:
2/22/11
Special Features:

Gag reel (the two disc edition has more special features and a DVD of the movie)

Review:

There's nothing like traveling across America with an idiot pretending to be an actor and an uptight businessman. Robert Downey Jr and Zach Galifianakis play Peter Highman and Ethan Trembley unlikely traveling buddies when both get kicked off a plane and are put on the "no fly" list. Unfortunately, Highman's wallet was in his bags which stayed on the plane and he is dependent on Trembley to drive him to Los Angeles from Atlanta in hopes of making it home before the birth of his kid. ***

"Due Date" is a very funny road movie and actors Downey and Galifianakis are perfectly cast in their roles. ---

Image & Sound:

The Blu-ray looks exceptionally good with a nice tranfer that reflects the theatrical presentation. Audio sounds quite nice with a solid 5.1 lossless mix.

Special Features:

If you're looking for just the movie and little else (the gag reel is included along with advertisements for Blu-ray. I've never been able to figure out WHY an advertisement designed to entice you to buy a Blu-ray player would BE on a Blu-ray disc), the single disc Blu-ray is well priced and pretty bare bones. Some of the business decisions that Warner is making is pretty darn goofy.

Final Words:

If you want disc with special features you'll have to pony up more money. Granted, you'll also get a DVD version of the movie (I guess than can come in handy if you're on a long road trip). It does kind of make sense in that Warner is trying to encourage people to buy rather than rent the movie and what you're getting here is the same disc that they're selling to the rental places. ***

Anyhow, "Due Date" is very funny with some great performances from the director of "The Hangover".
