Planes, Trains, Automobiles, The Downey, and Galifianakis

OK, first of all, I'm getting dangerously close to getting all Galifianakis'd out. Ever since the success of The Hangover, he's starting to show up everywhere -- hell, this is the third trailer featuring him we've shown in the last week. I mean, I love the guy, think he's hilarious (if a little one-note, though hopefully It's Kind of a Funny Story will stretch him a bit), but I'm hoping he doesn't suffer from overexposure.

That said, I have to admit that the trailer for Due Date looks, as my father would say, pretty fuckin' funny for something so stupid (ever the wordsmith, my father). Starring Galifianakis and Robert Downey Jr. (I don't know if you guys have heard of him or not, but he's kind of a big deal), it's a road trip movie featuring Downey as the straight man (!) trying to make it home for the birth of his child, with Galifianakis accompanying him. It borrows heavily from pretty much everything, but then again, Downey has proclaimed it to be the second-best movie he's ever made. Given this is the man whose given us some of my favorite movies, that's lofty praise. And besides, it's not a Planes, Trains and Automobiles ripoff because there appears to be neither trains nor planes. Anyway, here's the trailer.

Like I said. Stupid, but pretty fuckin' funny. In a good way, of course.
