Verdict

“Delivery Man tries to be a feel-good movie but fails due to a predictable story, mundane drama and very few laughs. The charming Vince Vaughn is its sole savior, making it a one time watch.”

At one point in Delivery Man, it is revealed to David Wozniak (Vince Vaughn), a former "professional" sperm donor whose pregnant girlfriend has just dumped him because he isn't responsible and reliable, that he is the biological father of 533 kids (who are in their late twenties by now) who want to know the identity of their father. Without a significantly happening life that he is, he goes on a spree of stalking his children, sometimes interacting with them or helping them out. There's potential for an intriguing drama about relationships, existence and identity, but all that Delivery Man aims at is being a "nice" movie. The real problem is, it is one that is too desperate to be cute. Why show us a slew of short encounters between David and multiple children of his in a sweeping way (and structured as a montage, of course!) with the broadest of strokes (there's a young girl with drug issues, a perpetually-sulking struggling actor, a mentally challenged man, a gay man with multiple partners, a basketball star) instead of focusing on one or two and showing us the specifics, amounting to some actual drama? The film is also unfair to its own core issue, using the relationship between the children and the father (who himself reveals his identity to them later on) as a mere ploy used by David to convince his girlfriend that he's worthy of her. In what is supposed to be a "warm" movie about a good-for-nothing but an inherently lovable guy, it renders its characters and their relationships with labels without any thematically enriching details, and trades potential intrigue for a few "awww" moments.
