“Delivery Man” Movie Review

4-Watertowers ForCarol.com Movie Review(Surprisingly Good)

The trailer that was shown on TV did not do justice to this movie. In fact, if it was not for Vince Vaughn (as David aka “Starbuck”), we would not have gone to see it.  I’m glad we did, as “Delivery Man” was much better than I thought it would be: fun, heartwarming, and tender.

delivery manDavid made $24,000 one year visiting a sperm bank over 600 times. David has a big heart, but, is, lovably incompetent in life.  We find out later in the movie that he used the sperm bank money to send his parents to Italy (after they found out that his mother was diagnosed with a fatal illness).

David’s sperm was very strong. And the sperm bank broke the rules… using his sperm way too many times.  In fact, he is the biological father of 533 children, 142 of whom are suing the sperm bank to find out who “Starbuck” is.

His lawyer and friend, Chris Pratt (as Brett) managed to get information on each of the 142 children, for the upcoming trial, which he gave to David with the instructions not to look at them.  David does and visits some of them, helping, and bonding with, them without them knowing that he is Starbuck.

“Delivery Man” is a really  good movie.  No f-words.  Bring tissue.  Vaughn and Pratt are terrific.

Go to IMDb for more information.  We watched this at the Tracy, CA CineMark.

  1. Good review Mike. I hate to say it, but I can’t agree with you on this. Though I liked both Pratt and Smolders in this, Vaughn didn’t do much for me. He wasn’t acting as his usual-self like we normally see in movies, but he wasn’t really entertaining me all that much either. He was just there, moving the story along when needed.
