While the story drags at times, Delivery Man is smart, funny, fresh and full of heart.

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.

Delivery Man has a beginning, a middle and an end. And, for modern Hollywood, a pertinent everyman story to tell, too.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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.

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

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

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.

It gets mawkish, quite severely so in places, but it's undemanding and feel good and sometimes funny.

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.

"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.

Observer (UK)

The tone wavers between the pantomime and the mawkish and while little has been lost in translation, less still has been gained.

Trevor Johnston
Radio Times

It's warm-hearted, certainly, but ultimately undone by a would-be feelgood central conceit that makes less and less sense the more you think about it.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

London Evening Standard

Alas, the hero is played by Vince Vaughn, a limited actor whose range extends from petulant to homicidal.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Vaughn delivers an unusually heartfelt performance, verging on self-deprecation (as opposed to the usual smugness) and it gives us hope that he's finally growing up.

In remaking his 2011 French Canadian surprise hit Starbuck, filmmaker Ken Scott doesn't really try to do anything new.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

What is supposed to be funny and heartwarming is instead creepy and stalkerish. There's no charm or emotional plausibility in a tale that cannot work without it.
Andy Lea
Daily Star
January 10, 2014
Of course, it's schmaltzy and very contrived. But if you're in the right mood, you might also find it rather touching.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Vince Vaughn, alas, simply doesn't have the lightness of touch to give this film the charm it badly needs.
Henry Fitzherbert
Daily Express (UK)
January 9, 2014
It's not exactly a relatable scenario, the plot is too thin and episodic and there are few laughs.
