Thankfully Vince Vaughn is in restrained form in this bittersweet comedy as David Wozniak, a delivery truck driver for the family meat business.
He s deep in debt and repeatedly lets down his brothers as well as his girlfriend (Cobie Smulders) who is expecting their baby.
Out of the blue, David learns that frequent donations to a sperm bank in his student days have resulted in 533 children. Of those, 142 have launched a class action to force the fertility clinic to reveal the identity of the man they know as Starbuck.
David turns to lawyer pal Brett (Chris Pratt) to keep the records sealed. However, David complicates matters by secretly visiting some of his children. “I could be their guardian angel,” he says forlornly.
Delivery Man is surprisingly touching and Vaughn is likeable throughout but there’s a lack of on-screen chemistry with Smulders.
