A remake of the 2011 French-Canadian film Starbuck, 'Delivery Man' is A Sweet Film, that has a charm working for it & also features a winning performance by Vince Vaughn.
'Delivery Man' Synopsis: An affable underachiever finds out he's fathered 533 children through anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years ago. Now he must decide whether or not to come forward when 142 of them file a lawsuit to reveal his identity.
'Delivery Man' makes good use of its innovative story-line, as it succeeds in arresting its viewer, at most parts. The journey of its protagonist & his many, many kids offer moments of love, humor & strong emotion. However, the pacing in its second-hour lacks sharpness.
Ken Scott & Martin Petit's Screenplay works mostly to its advantage. Ken Scott's Direction, on the other-hand, is subtle. Cinematography is standard. Editing lacks crispness.
Performance-Wise: Vince Vaughn shines in the lead role. He's funny & likable all through. Cobie Smulders looks stunning & enacts her part well. Chris Pratt is strictly okay. Adam Chanler-Berat leaves a mark. Others lend adequate support.
On the whole, 'Delivery Man' is a decent watch.
