Comedy - This is a much gentler change-of-pace for star Vince Vaughn, a more
sweet and sentimental heartwarming comedy without much of the

Roger EbertFull Review Below Average I rooted for Huard's second chance, but not Vaughn's. Without that element, the seams in the story become distracting. You pull at them, and the movie falls apart.

Washington PostFull Review Above Average English eemake of charming French-Canadian paternity farce is -- surprise -- just as charming.
NY PostFull Review Good Basically a kinder, gentler Vince Vaughn movie for people who don't like Vince Vaughn movies, "Delivery Man'' trades the abrasive comedian's trademark snark for schmaltz — an experiment that actually works better than you'd guess.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth

Based on a theater exit polling of 24 moviegoers:
TEENS: Two males loved it, one rated it above average and one thought it was just an average movie. The one female enjoyed it very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The one male rated it just average.
ADULTS:The male and female reviews are very similar. Over a third loved it with another twenty percent, or so, rating it above average. Unfortunately, another twenty to twenty-five percent only rated it average, which is a little low, but not bad. What is bad is that a few rated it below average.
