“DELIVERY MAN” Movie Review. As silly as he can get, he reaps what he’s sown.
“DELIVERY MAN” PRESS REVIEW
A dubious title, but it’s all about funny man VINCE VAUGHN, so you can be assured that it can be a genuine trade-in for guffaws. VINCE is known as the gag man. Right?
Here’s the delicious scoop:
In present tense, David Wozniak (Vince Vaughn) is always friendly, but luckless in most things he does.
He has been working for his family’s meat business for as long as he can remember, and has a pregnant girlfriend (Cobie Smulders) who refuses to believe that he can be a good daddy.
In past tense, two decades ago, he regularly donated his sperm in exchange for cash to help out childless couples. Naturally, he lost count.
But the past comes back to haunt him now, especially when he discovers he has fathered 533 children through his sperm donations two decades ago.
142 of them are filing a lawsuit forcing him to reveal his identity.
He enlisted his lawyer buddy (Chris Pratt) to be his legal consultant. He also starts secretly to get involved in the lives of a few of his offspring.
An act of redemption? Or so he thinks.
So this deliveryman who’s sown his seeds all over the country sets off to check how his kids are faring —without letting any of them know he’s the biological father.
The plot may seem cliched, melodramatic more than comedic.
But relax, it is a refreshing take about basic human needs.
Vaughn shines in his role, and there’s an engaging chemistry between him and Pratt.
“Delivery Man” is a funny film with oodles of charm to dispel gloom and bring that smile to your face.
Go watch it.
