Delivery Man: Film Review

12 November 2013 9:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Vince Vaughn plays a chronic sperm donor whose progeny come back to haunt him in this American remake of 2011's Starbuck.

Warmth and fuzziness abounds in Delivery Man, a feel-good yarn about a lovable loser of a meat delivery truck whose old side gig as a fertility clinic donor has resulted in his being the dad of hundreds of biological children, of whom 142 have filed a lawsuit to reveal his identity.

An extremely faithful re-telling of Starbuck, a popular 2011 French-Canadian comedy directed and co-written by Ken Scott (who duplicates his services here), the fictional film politely abstains from tapping the storyline’s ripe, satirical potential in favor of a softer-around-the-edges approach.

Thanks to some potent performances, led by Vince Vaughn in a decidedly change-of-pace, reflective turn, this Disney release proves lightly entertaining in spite of its more heartfelt tendencies.

It should perform modestly with the older-skewing audiences who won’t »
