  • father-dearestFast 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.
