Movie Review: Delivery Man

Delivery Man is an American remake of the 2011 film Starbuck by Ken Scott, a story about a man who donated his sperms countless times in the past under the name 'Starbuck' and found out years later that his sperms fathered 533 children and 142 of them is looking for him.
Once again, Vince Vaughn is back with his likeable man-child persona again for this remake about fatherhood and family. Despite the fact that Vince's character is an irresponsible and unreliable person to be with, the film still remains entertaining due to its interesting plot concepts and the light-hearted nature of the film. Furthermore, Vince managed to provide enough charisma for the audience to accept his eventual personal growth near the end of the film.

His eventual decision to interact with some of his 142 revealed children: a troubled female teen with drug issues, a struggling street musician, a existentialism-driven geek, a swimming trainer, a disabled, wheelchair-bound son, an aspiring young actor-to-be, etc...searching some moments for random acts of kindness to help them is heartwarming, funny and entertaining at times as the story is told with good-natured sweetness in it.

Although the film offers nothing more than its premise, the film is not as bad as many would have expected it to be and has certainly delivered what it has promised.

Rating: 7/10
