TOP TEN FILMS OF 2010: #7 DUE DATE
4.5/5. It may have been one of the more later arrivals this year but 'Due Date' was still one of this years best deliveries. 'The Hangover's' Todd Phillips once again teamed up with the hilarious Zach Galafanakis alongside Robert Downey Jnr's charisma for a comedy both disgustingly funny and touchingly warm. The film also had a hilarious role call of cameo's led by singer/actor/comedian Jamie Foxx. The film had shades of the classic 'Planes, Trains & Automobiles' but also didn't shadow away from modern day, no holes barred hilarity, in any way possible. From drug use, to masturbation, to drinking the dearly departed and from fights with kids, the disabled and spitting on dogs 'Due Date' didn't miss a comedy destination. Galafanakis and Downey Jnr really did give us a trip with this road journey. TIM DAVID HARVEY.
