  • COLUMN: ‘Due Date’ lacks heart, but is still enjoyable

    ERIC HARRIS, Film Review

    Comedy is my least favorite genre to review. I love a good comedy as much as anyone, don’t get me wrong, but to critique it is an exercise in futility. Comedy is subjective; it’s all about a viewer’s personal sense of humor.  I suppose one could make this argument for all genres of film, but I find comedies are much more susceptible to divisiveness.  The point is, I can’t tell you whether or not “Due Date” is funny; I can only tell you if I thought it was funny.
