Vince Vaughn is back on our screens again, doing what he does best - playing Vince Vaughn. Once upon a time, he played/was the carefree arrogant yet charming bachelor with a Peter Pan complex on the eternal search for fun. Now with two children of his own, Vince is tackling fatherhood on the big-screen in a big, big way.

Living a regular life in New York and avoiding any form of responsibility, affable pork delivery truck driver David Wozniak discovers he inadvertently fathered 533 children after some active sperm donating 20 years earlier. All 533 offspring have lodged a class action suit to find out the identity of their biological father, bypassing the anonymity contract. With the help of his best friend Brett (Chris Pratt), they do everything in their power to stop that from happening - but when David starts finding out the identity of some of his kids, he takes it upon himself to become a fairy-godfather of sorts, helping them out one at a time and truly discovering what it means to be the father of 533 people.

DELIVERY MAN - TRAILER

Almost an identical remake of the French-Canadian film ‘Starbuck’, made only two years ago by the same writer/director Ken Scott, ‘Delivery Man’ boasts a lot more heart and schmaltz than you’d expect, with genuine relationships put on under the microscope. Vaughn is the same old loveable Vaughn, with Pratt stealing many of the one-liners and memorable moments. The film also hits a few dark spots rather clumsily - like when one of the children turns out the be a heroin addict, an addiction that is apparently solved by a evening in hospital and a job at Barney’s.

Although pleasant enough, this just doesn’t reach the laugh-out-loud level of comedy we’ve come to expect from Vaughn and have missed in his last few outings. It is, however, a no-brainer that you can sit back and let wash over you with a smile on your face.
