Zach Galifianakis is on a hell of a roll post-“The Hangover”. This week alone he’s got two movies debuting their trailers, both bro comedies: “Due Date” with Robert Downey Jr., from director Todd Phillips of “Old School” and “The Hangover” fame, and “It’s Kind of a Funny Story”, where he plays a mental patient. Basically, yeah, ol Zach is getting typecast here, but that’s probably because he’s just so gosh-darn good at these roles.
Check them both out below, people who enjoy checking out things starring Zach Galifianakis.
“It’s Kind of a Funny Story”: starring Keir Gilchrist, Zach Galifianakis, Emma Roberts, Viola Davis and Zoe Kravitz. Directed by Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden.
Stressed out from the demands of being a teenager, 16-year-old Craig checks himself into a mental health clinic. There he learns that the youth ward is closed and finds himself stuck in the adult ward. One of the patients, Bobby, soon becomes both Craig’s mentor and protege. Craig is also drawn to another 16-year-old, Noelle. With a minimum five days’ stay imposed on him, Craig is sustained by friendships on both the inside and the outside as he learns more about life, love, and the pressures of growing up.

“Due Date”: starring Zach Galifianakis, Robert Downey, Jr., Michelle Monaghan and Jamie Foxx. Directed by Todd Phillips.
Peter Highman is an expectant first-time father whose wife’s due date is a mere five days away. As Peter hurries to catch a flight home from Atlanta to be at her side for the birth, his best intentions go completely awry when a chance encounter with aspiring actor Ethan Tremblay forces Peter to hitch a ride with Ethan–on what turns out to be a cross-country road trip that will ultimately destroy several cars, numerous friendships and Peter’s last nerve.
