Todd Phillips ( The Hang­over) re­vis­its sim­i­lar com­edy ground in this road trip bro­mance. Highly strung fa­ther-to-be Peter High­man (Robert Downey Jr) be­comes en­tan­gled with pot- -smok­ing wannabe ac­tor Ethan (Zach Gal­i­fi­anakis) as he boards a plane to Los An­ge­les to get home in time for his child’s birth. When Ethan’s an­tics get both men kicked off the plane and put on a “no fly” list, Peter has no op­tion but to share a car with Ethan and drive across the coun­try. Cue all kinds of gags in­volv­ing cor­rupt Mex­ica an bor­der of­fi­cials, an ex­citable dog an mishaps with Ethan’s dead fa­ther’s ashes. A throw­away road trip com­edy that doesn’t quite reach its des­ti­na­tion. ★★★
