Due Date

I have been awful. Yes I have been absolutely awful at updating lately. Since school started again your priorities change a bit and therefore I have not been able to devote so much time into doing things for my blog as I normally would have. But I hope I can find a rhythm soon again. To have some fun I decided to watch a comedy movie from 2010.

The story is about two insanely different men who after an incident on a plane find themselves on a road trip to make it home together. But will they survive each others company?

I did not expect this. I mean Robert Downey JR is in the movie! I had expected some kind of entertainment. But then, just as I thought this movie was going to be the most boring comedy ever made something happened. It happened so fast. The movie went from more boring than watching paint dry to a fight where I had a hard time keeping my eyes open because I was laughing so much. After that funny moment I felt that the movie never really exceeded from there, but it was now a very enjoyable film. It was entertaining and in the end I had to love it despite the very rocky start.

The plot is sort of perfect for a typical summer movie and it was a great way for me to say goodbye to this summer. The characters give the movie some originality and they are one of the key elements to why I ended up liking the movie. I even liked the ending, which was surprising considering the rollercoaster it had been for me. But the ending was simple yet pleasant. It may not been the best comedy I have seen but if you still have a hard time to say goodbye to summer, this will be perfect for you. 8 / 10
