Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A golden comic premise, directed to dross by Ken Scott, who also made the Canadian original ("Starbuck," from 2011) on which this Vince Vaughn vehicle is based."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
"Delivery Man can be pegged as yet another in a seemingly endless series of Apatow-era man-child redemption stories ..."
‑ Adam Nayman, Globe and Mail
"The sheer cognitive dissonance between being told that this character is nice and the baffling deception he pulls on hundreds of people is agonizing, and it makes the story horribly anti-dramatic."
‑ Dan Schindel, Movie Mezzanine
"While those simple oversights may prevent the movie from achieving perfection, they rarely undermine its earnest endeavor to explore shifting family dynamics and their impact on our ability to connect with others."
‑ Jason Buchanan, TV Guide's Movie Guide
""Everybody loves you", the fictional father of Vince Vaughn tells Vince Vaughn in Delivery Man, but he's obviously not read the box office reports on the star's last few movies."
‑ Ed Whitfield, The Ooh Tray
"Softer and schmaltzier than the original. Vince Vaughn has played this guy before, to better effect."
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard
""Starbuck" was a funny and warm-hearted trifle. So is "Delivery Man.""
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"'Delivery Man' is a little like the main character: just good enough to make you care a little and smile a lot."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"It gets mawkish, quite severely so in places, but it's undemanding and feel good and sometimes funny."
‑ Aine O'Connor, Irish Independent
"Vaughn dials down his fast-talking schtick, but the story is often unconvincing (533 kids?) and there are very few laughs."
‑ Stephen Carty, Flix Capacitor
"Calling Delivery Man a "comedy" is a bit of a stretch, because it's rarely funny. Dumb, yes, but not in a way that's worthy of more than a half-hearted chuckle."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Vaughn never quite convinces as the perpetual slacker in this blue-collar family (he doesn't even look like he's from the same gene pool) and too many of the characters feel puppeteered into place; you can see all the strings."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Delivery Man starts off strong, but gradually fades into mediocrity courtesy of, well, just too much going on."
‑ Jonathon Natsis, FILMINK (Australia)
"Vaughn gives his shiftless character a surprising degree of goofy charm, but he can't halt the film's inexorable slide into sentimentality and the limp script's lack of real wit leaves the endeavour looking misconceived."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"The tone wavers between the pantomime and the mawkish and while little has been lost in translation, less still has been gained."
‑ Mark Kermode, Observer [UK]
