'Delivery Man' Proves Vince Vaughn Has Taken Nice Guy Lessons From these 10 Other Amazing Comedians
Ken Scott's new comedy Delivery Man, starring comedy juggernaut Vince Vaughn, opens this weekend. The story follows David Wozniak, a low-key guy who drives a delivery truck for his family's butcher shop, who finds out he's fathered 533 children after having donated to a sperm bank more than 20 years ago.
The film has gotten mixed reviews, though the majority have been positive. Critics have lauded Vaughn's performance, many claiming it's his most subtle and thoughtful work. Wait, hang on... you mean to tell me Vince Vaughn is starring in a comedy where he's not talking a million miles a minute while yelling at people and telling dick jokes? GET OUTTA TOWN! Is Delivery Man to Vince Vaughn as Stranger Than Fiction was to Will Ferrell? It's a welcome change, however, that doesn't mean Vaughn will soon stray from his go-to lovable jerk roles.
What's perhaps more exciting about Delivery Man is Vaughn's co-stars, Chris Pratt and Bobby Moynihan. I don't know about you, but I'm thrilled to see these guys in bigger roles, and it feels like only a matter of time until they're starring in their own big comedies. And it gets better... Pratt and Moynihan are wholly likable guys on screen. Perhaps gone are the days where men in comedy have to be completely lewd, crude, and rude. Because the whole "Foul-mouthed jerk who talks about sex and poop" is, well, old. Having more sensitive men on screen is just better for everyone.
Let's take a look at the new school of funny men.
