This is the year of the Zach G. vehicle (and the year of Scanner talking about him). The latest reprisal of the his popular crazy friend role is as Robert Downey Jr.’s road trip buddy in the bro comedy Due Date. Why are they taking a road trip? Because Robert Downey Jr. is having his baby born in Los Angeles, and he needs to get there in time for the birth. Why? Because his dad abandoned him in 1977 and never returned. (It’s all explained in the trailer.)
Race to the clock! Countdown! Car crashes! Speeding! Dads! It looks fun.
