Due Date: Why not tonight?

Due Date (Blu-ray)  – Due Date was good when I saw it in the theatre, but I knew it would be a much better watch at home. Boy, was I right. The film takes the premise of Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987) and replaces Steve Martin and John Candy with Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis. Add to the mix director Todd Phillips (The Hangover), and the film delivers a ton of laughs with some memorable, off-colour, scenes (which all work better from the comfort of your couch).

The Blu-ray release features a clean HD image and decent sound mix. Special features include additional scenes, a gag reel, a special Two and a Half Men scene featuring Galifianakis’s character, and more. A regular DVD and digital copy of the movie are included as well.   *** Blu-ray ***

(3 out of 5 stars).
