There is arrogance in sports. And then there is arrogance without cause in sports.
In the 17 years since "Swingers," Vince Vaughn has cultivated the comedic persona of an obnoxious and insensitive boor, so it may come as a surprise to learn that "Delivery Man" reveals a softer side entirely. As David Wozniak, the world's most fertile sperm donor, the star plays someone who's overwhelmed as opposed to merely overwhelming. It's a welcome change, though a significant marketing challenge as well, considering DreamWorks has almost no way of letting audiences know that "Delivery Man" is virtually nothing like a Vince Vaughn movie, but rather a heartfelt celebration of the act of parenthood presented under radically exaggerated circumstances.
Novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald once famously declared “there are no second acts in American lives.” But the writer didn't live long enough to see The Rascals prove him wrong.

My adventure with Internet sales began in 2002, but I didn’t become an Internet retailer until 2004. I had a full-time job as a plumber, when one day I injured both my knees on the job. I had to undergo multiple surgeries and months of physical therapy, after which I was no longer be able to continue working as a plumber. That’s when my online sales had to turn into a real business. Today I sell hundreds of Disney items through the Internet to customers all over the world. As a true Disney enthusiast I can look back at the last ten years and say that dreams really do come true! Yet Federal legislation that has come out of Congress threatens to crush our dreams.

Yes, it is possible. You can pursue the American dream. And maybe even be on your way to achieving it by age 11.

But they can’t stop a proud and determined kid from marching, head held high, straight towards that American dream.

Humanity's home planet hardly merits the name-check in "After Earth," M. Night Shyamalan's sci-fi survival tale whose shipwreck action could (with the exception of a scene where our hero scrawls a crude map over Lascaux-like cave paintings) take place on any old life-supporting globe in the cosmos. The disappointingly generic film, which strands a father and son (Will and Jaden Smith) on Earth a thousand years after a planet-wide evacuation, will leave genre audiences pining for the more Terra-centric conceits of "Oblivion," not to mention countless other future-set films that find novelty in making familiar surroundings threatening. Will Smith's presence, not just as co-star but as originator of the story, seems likely to carry box office receipts beyond the benchmark of Shyamalan's previous picture, the wretched "The Last Airbender," but those hoping for a franchise should navigate elsewhere.
