Fast and furious gentle humour massages the soul in Delivery Man, a fresh farce from Touchstone Pictures. Taken from the hit French Canadian film Star- bucks that debuted a few years back this American version flourishes with its free spirit. Harness all the positive energy at Cineplex Odeon theatres around B.C.
Good guy Vince Vaughn (Wedding Crashers) comes on strong as likeable loser David Wozniak. Blessed with a loving dad and two goofball brothers all work at the family meat shop. Years earlier The “chosen one” saw fit to donate sperm. 20 odd years later the chickens have come home to roost.
Imagine the surprise to learn that you’re fathers some 500 children. Quite naturally the children want to learn who their biological dad is. Sparks fly in this wondrous tale as the warmth shines through. Even more complications arise as Wozniak has modern girl problems of his own along with various debts.
Original director and writer Ken Scott does a good job recreating the French version. Whether or not David will fess up and meet his new family is part of the dips. In this heartwarming effort. Feel good movies come and go but Vince Vaughn continues to grow.
