Delivery Man Review


Very Good

In remaking his 2011 French Canadian surprise hit Starbuck, filmmaker Ken Scott doesn't really try to do anything new. Aside from transplanting the story to New York and casting Hollywood star Vince Vaughn, it's exactly the same movie: likeable enough, even without attempting to do anything new or solve the problems of the original film.

Vaughn plays David, a slacker trying to pay off his debts and support his newly pregnant girlfriend (Smulders) by delivering meat for his butcher dad (Blumenfeld). Then David learns that, after donating sperm 20 years earlier, he has 533 biological children. When 142 file a class-action suit to learn the identity of the donor "Starbuck", David hires his inexperienced lawyer pal Brett (Pratt) to represent him in court. In the mean time, he begins to quietly follow his "kids" around like a sort of guardian angel. Then the press gets hold of the story, and he worries that his identity will be revealed.

Without trying too hard, Vaughn brings considerable charm to this character, so we like him even though David has no direction in his life. Vaughn is great at balancing the comical and dramatic elements of the story, notably in his hilarious scenes with Pratt and the more emotional interaction with three of the kids (Reynor, Robertson and Chanler-Berat). There's also a significant, moving sequence at the end between Vaughn and Blumenfeld.

David Wozniak may be a lazy, middle-aged slob now, but he certainly did enough in his younger years to get himself into a situation that no man could ever dream of happening to them. After donating a vial of sperm to a sperm bank some 20-plus years ago, he is visited by an official from the clinic who informs him that he has in fact managed to father a colossal 533 children. Unfortunately, a good percentage of those 'kids' are now taking legal action in a bid to discover the identity of their biological father, nicknamed Starbuck. His lawyer has managed to pick up an envelope of all their profiles, giving David a strict instruction not to open it. Curiosity overcomes him when he opens it and he suddenly finds himself overwhelmed with a desire to take care of every one of his offspring and help them in any way he can. However, with a sceptical girlfriend, an unsupportive best friend and a lawyer who thinks he should stay away, he has got so many tough decisions to make.

This hilarious and heartwarming movie is based on the recent French film 'Starbuck'. Both were directed and written by Ken Scott ('Sticky Fingers', 'The Rocket: The Legend of Rocket Richard') and it tells a tale of responsibility and the true meaning of parenthood. 'Delivery Man' will be released in the UK on January 10th 2014.

David Wozniak is a 40-something year old slob who did some stupid things to earn a living when he was much younger. When he is visited by an official from the local sperm bank, he discovers that one of those stupid things has led to him fathering no less than 533 children after donating his seed back in the nineties and now he is up against a lawsuit from 142 of them who are demanding to know his real identity after only being aware of his alias 'Starbuck'. With a lawyer who thinks the best course of action is to plead insanity in court, David must consider whether or not he should follow his intrigue and come forward, or retreat and fight for his anonymity. Meanwhile, his current girlfriend is having second thoughts about him as she becomes pregnant, fretting over his suitability to face up to his responsibilities.
