Simply put Due Date quotes are unevenly amusing and a tad clichéd. The story is not a classic since the odd couple comedy road trip movie has been done before and better. However, as uneven as the movie is it still does provide some comedic value and a few laugh out loud moments. If you go into it not expecting too much from this movie, you might even enjoy it more!

Peter Highman: I just had the strangest dream. It’s Friday, we’re at the hospital, but it’s not a hospital, it’s a-a…a forest of sorts. And uh…I know that because right next to you there’s a bear.


Peter Highman: And all of a sudden you begin to deliver and uh…I can’t…I can’t get to you. But the bear can. The next thing I know he is holding our beautiful baby boy and here’s where it gets odd. Uh…he chews the chord, but strangely I’m okay with it. That’s gotta be a good sign.


Peter Highman: Theodore. Loved it. But remember that article I told you about? Naming kids after famous people? I just don’t want Teddy to think that he’s a failure if he doesn’t find about his face on Mount Rushmore.
