Peter Highman (Robert Downey Jr., Iron Man 2) is an expectant first-time father whose wife's due date is a mere five days away. As Peter hurries to catch a flight home from Atlanta to be at her side for the birth, his best intentions go completely awry when a chance encounter with aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis, The Hangover) forces Peter to hitch a ride with Ethan—on what turns out to be a cross-country road trip that will ultimately destroy several cars, numerous friendships and Peter's last nerve.
Simply put, as Peter soon states, "If there's a hell, I'm already in it."
Don't miss this comedy that definitely delivers.

Rotten: Downey is not entirely comfortable playing straight man and a little of Galifianakis's antics goes a long way.-Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor, January 03, 2011
Rotten: This would be passable enough fare for a throwaway comedy had the two stars bothered to bring their A-game.-Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun (Australia), November 26, 2010
Fresh: Phillips squeezes a lot of comedy juice from the odd couple pairing and, even with a few flat moments, the film shows a remarkable ability to keep hitting its sweet spot.-Jason Di Rosso, MovieTime, ABC Radio National, November 26, 2010
Fresh: It's true that they're undesirable travel companions (to each other, and to the audience), but you have to admire a comedy bold enough to feature such detestable lead characters.-Simon Miraudo, Quickflix, November 25, 2010
