What it's about:

An affable underachiever finds out that he’s fathered 533 children through anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years ago. Now, he must decide whether or not to come forward when 142 of them file a lawsuit to reveal his identity.

What the critics say:

Starbuck was a funny and warm-hearted trifle. So is Delivery Man.
- Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post

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 is nowhere near the worst film of 2013, but it is definitely the most exhausting.
- Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle

A soggy comedy more focused on stimulating your tear ducts than your funny bone.
- Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
