YMMV: Due Date
  • Crosses the Line Twice: About 80% of the movie does this.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The entire film, really, but special props go to playing Pink Floyd when Peter and Ethan got stoned.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Aw... Look, Ethan got on Two and a Half Men, too bad it got canned.
  • Ho Yay: It's heavily implied that Ethan is a homosexual.
  • HSQ: It starts with "Did that guy on the plane just shoot Robert Downey Jr?!" and just gets even crazier as the movie continues.
  • Squick: On two accounts: one, the scene in the car before Ethan goes to sleep; two, when Peter, Ethan, and Darryl accidentally ingest Ethan's father.
  • Tear Jerker: Surprisingly, there are several moments.
    • When Peter describes what happened to his father. (Although Ethan instantly ruins it by being Cloud Cuckoolander and laughing at him.)
    • When Ethan "acts" that his wife wants a divorce and begs her to not leave him like his dad did.
    • When Ethan drops the ashes on the carpet in Darryl's kitchen. Peter's quiet consoling makes it all the more emotionally gut-wrenching.
    • When Ethan finally scatters his Dad's ashes.
    • You got a little stuffy at the end of the coffee scene, admit it.
