Delivery ManVince Vaughn (The Dilemma) goes for super sperm of the year in Delivery Man, a remake of the Canadian film Starbuck.

The comedy movie follows underachiever David Wozniak (Vaughn), who learns that, thanks to selling his sperm 20 years earlier, he has fathered 533 children — and now they all want to know who he is.

Chris Pratt (TV’s Parks and Recreation) and Cobie Smulders (Safe Haven) also star in the PG-13  film, which was written and directed by Ken Scott, the director and one of the writers of the original Starbuck.

Which is interesting, because 2011’s Starbuck got much better reviews than Delivery Man, even though (judging by the trailer), the new movie almost looks like a step by step carbon copy of the original but with different faces. Starbuck, however, was rated R, so maybe that’s what made the difference. Either way, Starbuck earned 65% approval from critics (80% from moviegoers), according to Rotten Tomatoes, while Delivery Man got only 38% from critics (52% from moviegoers). Hmmm.

Delivery Man earned $30 million in wide release in theaters. Starbuck was shown on a handful of screens in 2013, but it has also been streaming on Netflix. (Check it out. It’s worth it.)

The DVD, Blu-ray and digital release of Delivery Man offer these special features:

  • featurette “Building Family” (Blu-ray and digital)
  • “Vince Vaughn: Off the Cuff” (Blu-ray and digital)
  • “I Got The Part” (Blu-ray and digital)
  • bloopers (Blu-ray, DVD and digital)
  • deleted scene You Are Under Arrest (Blu-ray, DVD and digital).

Bonuses on digital vary by retailers.
