ScreenPicks review the new movies Delivery Man and Philomena. Delivery Man, a remake of the 2011 French-Canadian film Starbuck, stars Vince Vaughn, Chris Pratt, and Cobie Smulders, and follows a man who learns thart, through sperm donations, he has fathered hundreds of children. The reviewers call it “one of those feel-good comedies that they used to make” and praise it for being neither “vulgar” nor “crass.”
Philomena, which stars Judi Dench and Steve Coogan, follows an Irish woman whose child was sold by the Catholic Church. The hosts give it high praise, comparing it to Notes on a Scandal, and finding it touching “on every level.”
