SYNOPSIS – In this heartwarming comedy, underachiever David Wozniak (Vince Vaughn) learns he’s actually an overachiever — he’s fathered 533 children via donations made twenty years earlier! David soon discovers that the shock of his life might just be the best thing that’s ever happened to him. Along the way he discovers not only his true self, but also the father he could become. Also starring Chris Pratt and Cobie Smulders — and complete with bonus materials, it’s a feel-good movie that really delivers.

So last night I asked the husband if he wanted to watch a movie with me. He gave his standard answer. “What movie?”. I replied “The new Vince Vaughn movie.” he mumbled something about him knowing Vince Vaughn was funny so sure he’d watch. I specifically didn’t mention to him that this movie had a lot of heart, which I knew because I visited the set while it was being filmed and interviewed some of the cast. Jad I told him that he probably wouldn’t have watched. And so we watched.
Delivery Man is the story of David Woziak, a thirty something guy who works as a delivery man for his family’s meat business. He’s in debt to some bad people and he’s a screw up. His girlfriend, a police officer, has just discovered she is pregnant, and she is very apprehensive that David will be a responsible father. He discovers that he is the biological father of 533 children. This happened because when he was in his early 20s he was a sperm donor, and the fertility clinic considered his samples highly desirable so they gave their clients nothing but his sperm for a year. A large number of the children want to know who their biological father is. David does not want his identity known, when he made the donations he had used the nickname Starbuck. Nevertheless, David is interested in knowing more about his children.
Picking out a few from background files the fertility clinic’s lawyer gave him, he follows them and learns a little about them. There’s a drug addict, a musician, a lifeguard, a basketball player and many, many more. His children are of all nationalities and races, and have many different physical qualities and levels of intelligence. There is even one young man who is in a wheelchair and unable to communicate. As David gets to know his children, David’s girlfriend gets to know David’s family. We learn what he did with all of the money he got from making his donations, and that tells us a lot about who David really is, even though he doesn’t show it.
David mentions to one of the children that even if they don’t find out who their father is they will have found each other. That strikes a chord with the children, who organize a big meetup day. David attends (noone knows who he is yet except one of the children) and really enjoys spending the day with all of them. The case is decided in his favor and Starbucks anonymity is to be preserved. But will the children find out David is their father? I can’t tell you that! There are no spoilers here! You’ll have to watch the movie to find out.
I recommend this movie highly. It’s got a lot of funny moments, and a lot of just “warm and fuzzy nice” moments that will touch your heart. While this PG-13 movie is all about family – having it, wanting it, understand the importance of it – young children will likely not understand the subject material.
