Delivery Man 

Vaughan makes a pretty good guardian angel, as it turns out

Creating an almost identical remake of his 2011 film, Starbuck, Canadian writer/director Ken Scott should have used the chance to refresh the material in Delivery Man. Vince Vaughan, playing a slightly more pathetic Vince Vaughan than he's been playing the last decade, stars as a broke meat truck driver who inadvertently fathered 533 children 20 years ago through sperm donation. Without a life of his own, he secretly visits his kids and watches over their dreams. Vaughan is at his best with all that guardian angeling. Basking in his kids' infinite lives brings a flourish of passion to the grumpy old goober. But everything gets so loaded down with subplots (from a disapproving pregnant girlfriend to murderous mobsters collecting on a debt) that the emotions never get a chance to bloom. Constantly fumbling, choosing tacky exits and a sitcom score, Delivery Man, like its protagonist, is afraid to actually commit.
