Vince Vaughn deserves better than this Hollywood version of the French-Canadian film Starbuck, a fact-based story about a meat-truck driver who fathered 533 children through long-ago sperm donations. Now 142 of his kids want to sue. Ken Scott, director of both films, tries futilely for laughs and tears. Delivery Man is one joke stretched to the breaking point. Mine was reached.

    “Nightshift”

    The Commodores | 1984

    The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
