Peter Highman (Robert Downey Jr) is an architect who's returning home after a business trip to witness the birth of his first child which is due in a week or less. Everything has been arranged, the airplane tickets are booked he just gotta go to the airport, set in his first class seat and viola ! However, things get pretty messed up when he unexpectedly bumps into a Pot head, inspiring actor Ethan Trembley (Zach Galifianakis) who wants to go to Hollywood. Not only does Ethan accidentally switch bags full of Marijuana with Peter. He also manages to get him kicked off the plane because of some lame joke about terrorist. Now Peter is pissed ! He can't fly cuz the airline company won't let him, he doesn't have his luggage, wallet or any money. He doesn't even have his license so he can't rent a car but he have to be in LA for the birth of his first baby, so what should he do ? The only solution. Ride with the man who was the reason for his misery.
O.K, I don't really know why people are "comparing" this with the Hangover I've seen that movie, I know it's been directed by the same person, it has Zach Galifianakis in it also and they are both road trip films except the Hangover only took place in Las Vegas while this manages to wander around between Kansas, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, Arizona and eventually LA but come'on guys this movie couldn't be more different than the Hangover even if it tried.
I have to say I really felt bad for Peter in this movie, I mean Ethan really made him go through hell trying to get him to LA. Ethan was very hard to like at first, I mean he's kinda the geek, weirdo guy who's also a pot head and everyone is trying to ignore and needs a hair cut really bad but then I soften up a little for him. The part in the plane was really funny ! I kept on laughing at that. Another part that had me laughing out loud was the part where Peter was high and he imagined Ethan as a bear, that was soo funny ! There were also other funny moments too like the sleeping while driving thing and the dog sunny !
On top of that I thought the scenery was really beautiful, I mean you got to see the landscapes and even the Grand Canyon too, almost a year ago I went on a trip to the West Coast we went to see California, Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon so it kinda brought back memories for me. Another thing I liked about this movie was the soundtracks, the music they were listening to was awesome ! I really liked that.
Well, Of course if you picked this movie up you'd be expecting it as a Comedy it's not the next big thing or the Greatest Show On Earth it's just a Comedy pure and simple so If your gonna watch this movie I'd say the only way to enjoy it or at least try is by viewing it as something totally pure entertainment, your knowledge is not gonna get bigger your IQ is not gonna get higher, your life won't change but your gonna laugh just for the sake of it :)
Iron Man sarcasm and Hangover comedy Makes for a funny movie! what can go wrong with 2 guy on a cross country trip with time constraints! hilarity!
Another great comedy to add to the best road trip movies, compared to the movies like "Road Trip", "The Sure Thing", and "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles", this movie ranks next to the greats. Every minute of it was a laugh and I literally had sore abdominals the next day. Great movie to watch over and over again, Robert Downey Jr. is the coolest.
Great combo of Galfianakis and Downey, Jr. Two people I wouldn't have ever expected to see in a movie together and the chemistry was amazing. There's a new laugh in every scene. What a great movie!
Great movie great actors, very funny. One of the best to come out recently. Also love the digital copy included with blu ray.
I bought this DVD because I like Robert Downey JR. and the other actor from the hangover. This movie is definitely for adults only due to the cursing and vulgar jesters! This movie is like Planes , Trains, and Automobiles but on speed and a lot more male racy bonding. but in the end they become friends and the planet is right again! Anyone in for a Freak Show and crazier ride than Hangover! Buy this DVD and enjoy the Ride!
wow super movie....it was referred to me by friends and had to get it....my wife and i got many super laughs out of the movie and we have passed it around the family....in this dreary age it is good to enjoy some laughs
Great product...loved this movie!!!!!!!!!!!! We loved Hang Over and Due Date too!!!!!!!!!!!!! The actor who played Alan and Ethan in both movies is the best. He makes both movies!!!! We have watched it so much that the DVD kind of hesitates in a few spots, which is kind of annoying, but still works.
great movie 4 stars. i liked how it was full of action and mystery. also very funny. The actors did a great job.
