The plot is quite thin, but the movie is winning because David is a screw-up but his heart is in the right place.

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.

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.
October 10, 2014
Delivery Man has a beginning, a middle and an end. And, for modern Hollywood, a pertinent everyman story to tell, too.
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 10, 2014
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.
January 10, 2014
In remaking his 2011 French Canadian surprise hit Starbuck, filmmaker Ken Scott doesn't really try to do anything new.
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.

Objections are washed away by the ingratiating performance of Vince Vaughn.
January 9, 2014
An enjoyable, feelgood comedy with a likeable performance from Vince Vaughn.
January 9, 2014
Now here's a novelty - a movie that might make you want to give Vince Vaughn a hug rather than a slap across his smart-alecky chops.
January 6, 2014
Arriving with the original's charm intact, the laughs may be on the squishy side but a versatile Vaughn is good value here. Fertile family fun.
January 3, 2014
This is not the wise-ass Vaughn we're used to, but instead a fully developed and fleshed out character.
December 11, 2013
Managing the same generous laughs and difficult shifts in tone (especially when we meet David's son Ryan), this seems to annoy purists due to the presence of Vaughn who, it's true, has been dire in some awful movies.
December 9, 2013
Delivery Man has charm to spare.
December 6, 2013
The film's premise could so easily have lent itself to very broad comedy, which would have been right inside Vince Vaughn's wheelhouse. Yet the movie takes a richer, more character-driven route, and Vaughn is clearly up to the challenge.
December 6, 2013
Delivery Man is a surprisingly heartfelt approach to a very funny premise; despite taking several unnecessary narrative detours along the way.
