Todd Phillips, the director of OLD SCHOOL, found an unprecedented hit on his hands with 2009's THE HANGOVER. Not only was it one of the funniest movies of the year, it also turned into an international box office sensation. Since its release, I haven't been able to escape quotes from the movie. I don't care how funny it was, if I have to hear how much Tigers love cinnamon one more time...I'll probably still laugh.

Naturally, I'm stoked to write about the trailer for the next comedy from Todd Phillips - DUE DATE. Check it out after the jump.

Looking back, I should have had the foresight to not write this post sitting at Starbucks. I was immediately in stitches, and continued laughing for a solid 2 minutes. Needless to say, I caught a few sideways glances.

This is easily the funniest trailer I've seen in months, which is about what I expected from any comedy starring Zach Galifianakis. Robert Downey Jr. looks to add to the comedy a great deal, specifically due to his innate on-screen charisma. When I heard the casting announcement for DUE DATE, I was worried about how well these two actors would work together. From the looks of this trailer, I needn't worry one bit.
