Bettie's Box Office: Delivery Man Review
Updated: Thursday, November 21 2013, 02:21 PM CST
Who's your daddy? For just about everyone in the cast of the holiday comedy, Delivery Man, it's Vince Vaughn.
During the 1990's, meat truck driver David Wozniak (Vaughn) supplemented his income by making frequent donations to a fertility clinic under the name Starbuck. Fast-forward 20 years and he suddenly discovers that because of a snafu at the clinic, he's fathered more than 500 children and a bunch of them want to know his true identity. Even though David wants to remain anonymous, he can't resist getting involved in some of their lives.
Vaughn drops his usual, quick-witted, fast-talking, playboy persona for a character with a little more heart. Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother) plays his now-pregnant girlfriend and Chris Pratt (Parks and Recreation) plays his best friend and lawyer. Despite the subject matter, the movie never gets too raunchy or juvenile; a nice change given the recent batch of adult comedies. It ends up being a movie about what family really means. There's little doubt about what will happen and how it will all play out, but you won't mind going along for the ride and you'll end up leaving the theater in a good mood. Isn't that what comedies are supposed to do?
Rent it or, if you're a Vince Vaughn fan, check out a matinee.
Delivery Man is rated PG-13 (that's right) for thematic elements, sexual content, some drug material, brief violence and language. It opens Friday, November 22.
