This weekend, one of Britain’s greatest comedy duos come together once again for Paul, about two comic book loving nerds who happen upon an alien that they befriend. Paul brings Simon Pegg and Nick Frost back together again after Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, to both costar and write. Paul features a cavalcade of some of today’s best comedic actors. But before you see Paul this weekend, you might want to check out some of their under-ranked films.
This weekend Due Date, director Todd Phillips’ follow up to his massively successful hit of last year, The Hangover, will be released. The film stars two of Hollywood’s hottest commodities right now, Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis, and is likely to become one of the biggest comedy hits of the year. Downey plays a soon-to-be father rushing to get home to his pregnant wife before his child is born. In order to get home as soon as possible, he must get a ride from Galifianakis, a hopeful actor who drives Downey’s character up the wall. Due Date looks like the spiritual successor to Planes, Trains and Automobiles and with the talent involved, shouldn’t have any problems bringing the laughs. But before you run to the theatre this weekend to see Due Date, check out some of these other under-ranked films from the film’s stars.
