Due Date – the Movie
Generally, movies featuring French Bulldogs make me nervous – we’ve had enough pop culture references, thanks, and we don’t need any more breed popularity. In this case, however, I’m making an exception, and not just because “Due Date” stars Robert Downey, Jr., one of my favorite actors of all time.
“Due Date” comes to you from the same people who brought you “The Hangover” and “Old School“, two of the funniest movies I’ve seen in ages, and it also stars the ever awesome Zach Galifianakis. The Frenchie in this movie gets a lot of face time, which is also unusual, and he seems to spend the entire movie wearing a cone and a bandaged foot. All together now – awwwwwwww.
Check out the trailer below, and tell me it doesn’t look great – even without the adorable cream Frenchie. “Due Date” comes out November 5.
This looks great! I LOVED the Hangover & adding a Frenchie tops it right there
I wonder if this is the same cream french that mike tyson was holding in his lap in the hangover? I wonder if it is the director’s pet or something, it definitely looks similar!
I definitely thought the same thing! A lot of people probably didn’t notice that puppy (except for us frenchie owners). I have a feeling this movie is going to make people covet my cream frenchie even more than they already do. It’s going to be an awesome movie 🙂
I wish I could post a photo of mine. He’s as cute as the one in this movie. I love my French bulldog
I do enjoy Robert Downey Jr……the movie looks great!
Yay! I can’t wait! Robert Downey Jr and a frenchie! Yes! Yes! Yes!
What a great way to start the day. That looks hysterical!!
A little worrying how they show the Frenchie walking through the desert and riding in the back of the truck, though! I live near the equator, and I can tell you that my Frenchie does not last much longer than five minutes outside. Maybe I’m being uptight but I cringed when I saw the trailer… though I LOVE Zach G. and this movie looks great.
Did you see the international trailers for Due Date? its so funny! http://bit.ly/bl8bZk
I am also wondering if this is the director’s dog- How can the answer be found?
i’ve watched this trailer 20 times & i still can’t stop laughing! …and muffy, i am right there with you! we HAVE to find out!
well..I can maybe answer the question, who is the frenchie in the movie Due Date? I bought my cream French Bulldog, Booz about 4 1/2 months ago from a breeder in Pasadena, CA. His Mom is actually the Frenchie in the movie Due Date..her name is Honey, but is Sunny in the movie..lol. I cannot WAIT until the movie comes out..and for his Mom to become a big star..; ) maybe her son will follow her footsteps one day..haha.
oh..and the breeder never mentioned that the dog was in The Hangover..so I think this may be a different dog..maybe the extra they used in Due Date as well?!
How do you know for sure your puppy is from the FBD in Due Date? Is it on paper?
The movie is great and the the french bulldog really makes the movie. I was surprised to find out it was a girl dog though as there is a scene where it is obviously male dog. It is doing a “trick” that our dog also performs. Now that I know it is girl dog I guess our dog’s trick is a bit unusual!
Nope my male 18mth frenchie also does circus tricks…
Usually a movie requires many dogs to do the work required in a movie..just like kids..
