The sad truth is that the funniest bits of Due Date are in the trailer, but it's biggest problem is that it just doesn't
work as a road movie. Instead, why not turn to David Lynch?

Hi this Mike from the substream.com and this is the November 5th edition of Watch this Instead the due date edition and road trip edition where you and I are going to go together on a brain journey in attack car. Starting point, what movie should you watch night? Destination, what should you watch instead of due date? So why not to see due date? It’s quite fine if you want it spending to guy that made the hangover. Twist number one is not funny outside of the handful of jokes that are already in the trailer and two and more importantly even in the fact that is not particularly funny is that the foundation of the film, the foundation of any road trip film which is the triangle of relationships that’s form to between the road trippers the partners to themselves going out in a journey and the destination that are going to the heart and soul of any good road film is due date mess up. It does quite work, Robert Danny Jr. place a bridge filled neurotic A type architect and that place a stoner with the firm and tiny little dog and about going to LA want to see the birth of his son and the other to see thing of fortune in Hollywood and the whole relationship the triangle between the two of them and where they’re going is not quite right. Timing to close to right actually and as result the film is full of this weird stress where they tend to get where they’re going the time so hard to get there but you care so little about how they get there ore and they’re going to get there because you don’t like either of them that instead of feeling man mad cap and screw ball and Zeny as the film ratchets of the tension its get funnier and the opposite happens and it doesn’t mention a tension and it ranches up stress because you don’t like any of this people and you don’t care where they’re going so the film get’s more and more stressful to watch as it goes on so huge of miscalculation and only makes to care it’s not interesting and makes the film less funny than already that’s going to be which is not particularly funny because they’re main jokes in the script. The formula which is the straight lays business A type guys whose force to travel by a serious of wacky con instances with the savvy golf ball partner, the formula that works so brilliantly in the movie like playing streams and all of the bills just falls apart in due date. Instead of lighting both of the characters for there for as and serve lighting them because they’re able to see past what they don’t like about each other and in fact in the end become loyal to each other instead of that you end up disliking both of the characters for there for us and disliking them for the way that they treat each other. Goofy characters are too goofy bordering on repugnant, rage shield, A type characters to mean bordering on the factious it just they’re completely indrawn and they don’t like each other and you don’t believe that they could fear radically and impossibly ever like each other so you don’t care about some kind of journey that they going together. Neither that they come learn anything and when they kind to re-forced to may reconcile with each other you know buy it, it just a kind of grab if the movie is over. So what you’re going to watch instead, watch David Lynch’s straight story so base on the illustration that I was illustrate with the ages 73 in bark on a six week long and 240 mile drive to visit his strange brother that had stroke that they had to took on his dirty road John Deer more attractor has only drive five miles an hour. There is no cinchy and weirdness in this one it’s not loss highway there is no spitting in dogs faces or golf ball mad cap car chases but thus to have one of the best performances on screen and really of all time by Richard Farms with who plays who came kind of retirement to be in this film who acted in it while he had terminal bone cancer going on and who wouldn’t died like the year after the film was release by his own hand. The film most importantly just has the soul of a road movie it has the soul of the story that’s about what real people can give too and take from and share with the people that they meet on our journey from wherever we going for whatever reason were going on them. It’s a true film apart and aside from each fidelity it’s a true story that’s base on because it’s about characters that seen drawn from real life rather then from really warn kind of ready comedy playbook which is where they do came from. So I hope you enjoy going on this journey with me I enjoyed going out with you and I hope that you watches straights instead of due date tonight or this weekend.
