[Delivery Man] falls short of being more than schmaltzy. The plot is incredulous and predictable in places.
August 29, 2019
Delivery Man, all glossy and gussied up, arrives without a pulse, extolling the same exhaustingly unrealistic fantasy that parenthood is life's cure-all, even for hopeless losers.

Delivery Man's failure lies in the gulf between the two films it's trying to be. Certain moments feel like leftovers from a more serious-minded picture... The rest of the film is pleasantly inconsequential, but these lapses in tone sour the picture.

The plot is quite thin, but the movie is winning because David is a screw-up but his heart is in the right place.
February 2, 2018
Gooey sentimentality and group hugs follow, but Vaughn is not entirely unappealing.
November 29, 2017
Delivery Man, for all of its rough edges, ultimately seeks to celebrate the family relationship, even if it isn't a movie for the whole family.
November 18, 2017
Based on 2011's movie, Starbuck, this is Vaughn's vehicle all the way. All said and done, the movie has its heart in the right place.
September 6, 2017
A sentimental exploration of what fatherhood means that doesn't overdo it with the sperm gags, it's a rather charming if unexceptional dramedy.
June 21, 2016
While the story drags at times, Delivery Man is smart, funny, fresh and full of heart.
April 9, 2016
Vaughn fans will find enough laughs to justify the two hours, but the tonal issues will make it a hard sell for anyone else.
March 11, 2016
Stiff but tolerable.
October 10, 2014
Delivery Man has a beginning, a middle and an end. And, for modern Hollywood, a pertinent everyman story to tell, too.
April 8, 2014
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.
March 28, 2014
'Delivery Man' is a little like the main character: just good enough to make you care a little and smile a lot.
February 7, 2014
Delivery Man starts off strong, but gradually fades into mediocrity courtesy of, well, just too much going on.
February 6, 2014
While those simple oversights may prevent the movie from achieving perfection, they rarely undermine its earnest endeavor to explore shifting family dynamics and their impact on our ability to connect with others.
February 6, 2014
It gets mawkish, quite severely so in places, but it's undemanding and feel good and sometimes funny.
January 19, 2014
Vaughn gives his shiftless character a surprising degree of goofy charm, but he can't halt the film's inexorable slide into sentimentality and the limp script's lack of real wit leaves the endeavour looking misconceived.
January 17, 2014
"Everybody loves you", the fictional father of Vince Vaughn tells Vince Vaughn in Delivery Man, but he's obviously not read the box office reports on the star's last few movies.
January 12, 2014
The tone wavers between the pantomime and the mawkish and while little has been lost in translation, less still has been gained.
