'Delivery Man' Fails to Deliver

Vince Vaughn's New Comedy Bombs

This weekend, Vince Vaughn’s comedy movie ‘Delivery Man’ was destroyed at the box office by its competition, including the latest movie in the Hunger Games trilogy ‘Catching Fire’. Curious to see how a movie featuring beloved comedian Vince Vaughn could do so bad, I decided to do a little research. What I found did not do the movie any favours. A pitiful score of 36% and a general consensus amongst reviewers that the movie was one of the worst released this year. And the timing for this movie could not be any worse, as Vince Vaughn has already had a bad comedy outing this year in the abysmal film ‘The Internship’, another comedy that fell flat on its face. Vine Vaughn’s attempts at playing characters outside of his, and his viewer’s comfort zones have not paid off for him. Vince Vaughn needs to go back to his usual narcissistic comedic self, not this sobbing man-child trying to make sense of the world, that we have been seeing him portray recently.  ‘Delivery Man’ fails to deliver (ha! So funny!) to his audiences in the way he did in movies like ‘Dodge-ball’ and this is disappointing. Vince Vaughn joins 2013’s cemetery of bad movies like After Earth, The Fifth Estate, Identity Thief, The Internship, The Lone Ranger The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, and R.I.P.D. One can only hope Vince Vaughn can dig himself out of this film abyss next year.
