DreamWorks has revealed the first trailer for the upcoming comedy “Delivery Man,” starring Vince Vaughn as a man with some highly potent sperm. Do we care? A recent spate of box office bombs, including this year’s profoundly unfunny “The Internship” with Owen Wilson and last year’s “The Watch,” indicates the aggressively manic Vaughn has lost his appeal.
David (Vaughn) learns that his anonymous donations to a fertility clinic decades earlier have inexplicably fathered 533 children, now scattered every which way. A bunch of them come forward with a lawsuit demanding he reveal his identity. Needless to say, a man-child existential quandary ensues.
It’s a shame that Vaughn continues to stick to these male demo-oriented clunkers. Will “Delivery Man,” based on French-Canadian hit “Starbuck,” pull him out of the muck and back into box-office favor?
Written and directed by Ken Scott — who also helmed “Starbuck” — the film co-stars Chris Pratt. It hits theaters stateside November 22.
