Delivery Man (2013)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: It has an undeniably sweet charm, and Vince Vaughn is eminently likable in the lead role, but The Delivery Man suffers in comparison to Starbuck, the hit Canadian comedy that inspired it.

Movie Info

From DreamWorks Pictures comes "Delivery Man", the story of affable underachiever David Wozniak, whose mundane life is turned upside down when he finds out that he fathered 533 children through sperm donations he made twenty years earlier. In debt to the mob, rejected by his pregnant girlfriend, things couldn't look worse for David when he is hit with a lawsuit from 142 of the 533 twenty-somethings who want to know the identity of the donor. As David struggles to decide whether or not he should reveal his true identity, he embarks on a journey that leads him to discover not only his true self but the father he could become as well.

Critic Reviews for Delivery Man

All Critics (136) | Top Critics (34)

Vaughn fans will find enough laughs to justify the two hours, but the tonal issues will make it a hard sell for anyone else.

Stiff but tolerable.

Irish Independent

Delivery Man has a beginning, a middle and an end. And, for modern Hollywood, a pertinent everyman story to tell, too.

Full Review… | October 10, 2014
Birmingham Mail

The sheer cognitive dissonance between being told that this character is nice and the baffling deception he pulls on hundreds of people is agonizing, and it makes the story horribly anti-dramatic.

Movie Mezzanine

'Delivery Man' is a little like the main character: just good enough to make you care a little and smile a lot.

Full Review… | March 28, 2014
Movie Metropolis

Delivery Man starts off strong, but gradually fades into mediocrity courtesy of, well, just too much going on.

Audience Reviews for Delivery Man

½

"Delivery Man" tells the story of a man who used to be a sperm donor, ply to find in the future that he has birthed over 533 children over the years. Of those 533, 142 of them wish to know the identity of their biological father. With many heartfelt moments and some solid comedy, this is a film that I will have no problem rewatching in the future, but with someone else. It is a very well-made film for what it is, but it does lack a little in it's script, which felt all little off. Vince Vaughn actually seems to be into this role more than his others, as he does not have as many witty remarks. I definitely recommend the film to suckers of the dramedy genre. I really enjoyed it!

Vince Vaughn for a while was my favorite comedy actor. "Old School", "Swingers", and "Wedding Crashers" are all three amazing comedies. But Vaughn has transitioned away from those cutting edge R rated comedies to more family orientated PG-13 movies. Which is fine, if the movies are funny. His act doesn't really translate to tamer comedy as good as say Eddie Murphy. "Internship" was ok, and now here's "Delivery Man" which on paper sounds ok. A guy(Vaughn) finds out there was a mixup with a sperm bank he used to donate to and he fathered 533 children, whom all want to know who their father is. The problem is this is very lighthearted and Vaughn doesn't play to his strengths. The funniest moments in the movie are involving his friend/lawyer played by Chris Pratt. Pratt is awesome and on a real roll lately with movies. Vaughn on the other hand seems to be on the down slope. Hopefully his next movie is R rated and he can go back to doing what he does back. Lot's of fast talking, cussing, and being an egomaniac with charm. Otherwise he'll end up like Eddie Murphy in another version of "Pluto Nash". This movie isn't horrible, it has it's moments. But thinking of how good it COULD have been is a little depressing. Give it a shot, but keep expectations low and afterwards watch some "Old School" for some real Vaughn comedy.
