Delivery Man Reviews

Alas, the hero is played by Vince Vaughn, a limited actor whose range extends from petulant to homicidal.

Vince Vaughn autopilots his way through this lame, contrived and strangely depressing high-concept comedy.
November 25, 2013
A golden comic premise, directed to dross by Ken Scott, who also made the Canadian original ("Starbuck," from 2011) on which this Vince Vaughn vehicle is based.
November 22, 2013
Softer and schmaltzier than the original. Vince Vaughn has played this guy before, to better effect.
November 22, 2013
Calling Delivery Man a "comedy" is a bit of a stretch, because it's rarely funny. Dumb, yes, but not in a way that's worthy of more than a half-hearted chuckle.
November 22, 2013
Delivery Man can be pegged as yet another in a seemingly endless series of Apatow-era man-child redemption stories ...
November 22, 2013
"Starbuck" was a funny and warm-hearted trifle. So is "Delivery Man."
November 22, 2013
Vaughn never quite convinces as the perpetual slacker in this blue-collar family (he doesn't even look like he's from the same gene pool) and too many of the characters feel puppeteered into place; you can see all the strings.
November 22, 2013
Nothing quite seems to fit, as if the movie's been assembled from bits and pieces of other movies.
November 22, 2013
Delivery Man, with its democratic band of half-siblings and its feel-good view of humankind, is what it is: a reproductive remake that will make you laugh. More than once or twice.
November 22, 2013
It's all far-fetched, silly and light. But then it's supposed to be.
November 22, 2013
Vince Vaughn can be a ray of sunshine in even the worst movies (see "Be Cool" for the best example of this). Here, I just didn't buy him as a loveable sad-sack.
November 21, 2013
"Delivery Man" is nowhere near the worst film of 2013, but it is definitely the most exhausting.
November 21, 2013
Let's just say, whatever your mood going in, you will likely feel a good deal better coming out.
November 21, 2013
A soggy comedy more focused on stimulating your tear ducts than your funny bone.
November 21, 2013
The concept's execution is sloppy, full of inconsistencies and plot holes. The situations teeter on funny, but never achieve it. And sections meant to be heartwarming feel lukewarm, far-fetched or inappropriately comical.
November 21, 2013
[An] overly sweet but heart-tugging comedy.
November 21, 2013
"Delivery Man" offers a kinder, gentler Vince Vaughn in a pleasantly ramshackle comedy several rungs below his usual fare in both budget and high-concept assault tactics.
November 21, 2013
The moral here is that you should never try to learn the identity of your biological father because he might be Vince Vaughn.
November 21, 2013
It's hard to tell the same joke twice. There's really just one too many offspring in this scenario, and it's Delivery Man.
