Due Date: This is a comedy road film, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis. We follow Peter Highman (Robert Downey Jr.) who must find a way to LA in five days to be at the birth of his firstborn. However, he is put on the “no-fly” list when his luggage and wallet are sent to LA without him. In desperate need of getting home, he agrees to hitch a ride with Ethan Tremblay (Zach Galifianakis) to drive him cross country. Peter is about to encounter the most terrifying and agonizing journey of his life…
We’re The Millers: This comedy film follows the story of David, small-time pot dealer who is forced by his boss to go to Mexico to pick up a load of marijuana. In order to make it past the border, David asks broke stripper and neighbour and two local teenagers to join him and pretend they are on a family holiday. This film stars Jenifer Aniston, Jason Sudeikis, Emma Roberts, Will Poulter and Ed Helms.
Thelma & Louise: Last but by no means least! Geena Davis (Thelma) and Susan Sarandon (Louise) star in this adventure film with Harvey Keitel, Michael Madsen and Brat Pitt in supporting roles. Louise shoots a man who tried to rape Thelma, and they make a run for it, but are soon followed closely by a policeman who is sympathetic to their plight. However, the federal authorities are less sympathetic and thus a cross country chase ensues for the two fugitives.
Along their journey, both women rediscover the strength of their friendship and suprising aspects of their personalities and self-strengths in the trying times.
