“Delivery Man” Review: Save Your Money And Stream “Starbuck” on Netflix


"Delivery Man" Review: Save Your Money And Stream "Starbuck" on Netflix

Lazy adaptations never pay off. When did French Canadian humor work in in the States?

After watching The Delivery Man, the concept intrigued me enough to watch the French Canadian film, Starbuck, it was adapted from. Getting through about half of it, I realized that The Delivery Man isn’t just an adaptation, it is a carbon copy of Starbuck with minor cultural changes (David Wozniak plays soccer instead of basketball in the American film).

With this being said, Starbuck works much better as a movie, even though neither movie is worth seeing. Basically, Vince Vaughn’s (The Internship) character (David Wozniak) donated so much sperm when he was in his early twenties that he is now the father of over 500 kids. On the brink of having his own kid with the woman who seems to ruin everything she is in, Cobie Smulders’s (How I Met Your Mother) character, his kids want to know who their father is.

Vaughn hasn’t been in a movie worth seeing since Fred Claus and hasn’t been in a critically positive film since Into the Wild. Therefore, it is no surprise that The Delivery Man can also be skipped. Vaughn actually does a good job in the film and is a very likable character. He brings us some good moments including a heartwarming visit to a kids with special needs home.

In the end, that movie isn’t even a comedy (I didn’t find it funny). The only funny thing about it is the ridiculousness of Wozniak having over 500 kids. If you really want to see the film, just instantly stream Starbuck on Netflix, then you can turn it off if you don’t like it.

A few years ago I founded the companies Mile High Movie Reviews, LLC and Mile High Pictures, LLC and have decided that it is time to let it go and move to bigger and better horizons. I have always been about taking the next step, and that is why you are here. I am now the founder, CEO, Producer and Editor-in-Chief of Vlizz Entertainment and hope to lead a very talented staff to success. I’ve been passionate about film ever since I saw Peter Jackson’s “The Fellowship of the Ring” (2001) and have found a love for the creativity and the business behind the industry. I am a double major in Accounting and Film Studies and Production at the University of Denver (DU) and am applying for my MBA. I will also be working towards getting my CPA license in the next few years. I have been involved in the online entertainment journalism industry since August 2010 and am excited for how social media is paving its future. My goal is to redefine the film and entertainment industry by combining my cinematic creative passion with an extensive knowledge of business, finance and most importantly accounting.
