Delivery Man

Critics 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.

    It's hard to deny the fact that this film has a certain charm about it. Perhaps it lays it on too thickly at times, but the fact that it is charming, at times, is undeniable. It's also hard to deny Vince Vaughn's inherent likability in this role, even if you wish that he'd do something different than the usual 'lovable loser' type role. The problem is that, sadly, this film is almost shot for shot exactly the same as the film that inspired it. It's not like the Oldboy remake, where the main plot pots were exactly the same, but the way the film was shot was different, this one is almost, literally, exactly the same. The only thing that's any different is that this David Wozniak is obsessed with basketball, whereas in the original Wozniak was obsessed with soccer. That's pretty much it. It doesn't really affect much of the actual plot however. It got to the point where, if I'm not mistaken, they used some of the same actors from the original in the remake. Or perhaps they were just made up to look exactly the same. I think that's why the film got the rating that it did. Yes, it has that same spirit and charm...but it's only a replication of it. An exact replica of a film that I've already seen, and enjoyed more. It's kinda hard to get pumped up about seeing an exact remake of a film you've already seen. I'm sure the original isn't THAT hard to find. I'm sure there's also a very poor English-dub version of the original film if you can't stand to read subtitles. The first film wasn't a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination, I thought it was fun, but it's like you didn't even try to improve, or modify, aspects of the film. You just took the original script, translated it to English and then went out and filmed it. That's all it is. And you know the funny thing is, that I STILL liked this film. Even with all its faults, I still found myself enjoying the film. I wouldn't say it was good, because of the reasons I just mentioned, but I was having a good time. Even if it is a replica, it's a pretty decent one at that. I can imagine if I hadn't seen the original, that I'd have given this film a better rating, it'd all been new and fresh to me. The fact that I saw it before, done exactly the same way, and better, then that definitely took a lot away from it. This is practically interchangeable, as far as plot goes, from the original, but I'd still go ahead and watch that one over this one any day of the week. It's not a bad movie, it's just content to go down the same path as the original rather than trying to make something different from what has already been done. It's a slippery slope though, people are never satisfied. Be too faithful to the film and people complain you're just repeating it...stray too far from the original and people complain it doesn't have the same spirit as the original. I think there's a middle ground that can, and HAS been reached by the likes of Let Me In, where you can be faithful to the original, while also adding enough that is different to make it a refreshing experience for those in the audience who happened to watch the original film. This doesn't do that. So if the original film is your favorite movie ever, then I can't really see this movie doing much for you. This would be better appreciated by those who haven't seen the film that it is based on. Nothing you need to go out of your way to see but, much like Pompeii, something that won't require much brainpower and will provide some painless hours of 'entertainment'.

    Vince Vaughn has not found the same stride from Wedding Crashers in any film since, but he has come close on a few occasions. Just looking at his filmography and you can't help but agree with most of the fresh/rotten results. Most are unfortunately rotten. I think it's totally based on his lack of a solid No. 2 outside of Owen Wilson, which actually made 'The Internship' better than advertised. It's nice that the actual story ends up tugging on your heart more than you think it would, but the meat of what you expect out of a Vince Vaughn showing is the comedy. The timing is just never there, even from Chris Pratt who does the most with what he's given by Ken Scott who directed the original Starbuck this movie is based on. Let's continue to see where Vaughn goes with his films, cause certainly Delivery Man isn't on an upward trend.

    This American comedy-drama directed by Ken Scott is starring Vince Vaughn, Chris Pratt, and Cobie Smulders. The film is a remake of Scott's 2011 French-Canadian film and also based on a true story Starbuck. Ok... to clarify that... The story is about an ordinary guy David Wozniak who is a hapless deliveryman for his family's butcher shop. Trying to be successful he starts growing marijuana hydroponically, but the money he spent on equipment were wasted. Pursued by thugs to whom he owes $80,000 he is not sure what to do. His girlfriend Emma is pregnant with his child, and when a normal life seems like a possibility, David returns from work to find a lawyer representing a sperm bank (where he gave 693 donations and earned a sum of $24,255 during his student years) who tells him he had fathered 533 children. Of those, 142 have joined a class action lawsuit to force the fertility clinic to reveal the identity of "Starbuck", the alias he had used. Delivery Man doesn't have enough laughs to be called a good comedy and doesn't have enough emotional charge to be called sentimental. I'll say it is a perfect movie to watch with your neighbours when they come to visit you. Acting wasn't bad but the rest was mostly mediocre.

    Your typical "watchable-but-forgettable" premise-driven comedy.
