DreamWorks Pictures’ “Delivery Man” stars Vince Vaughn as affable underachiever David Wozniak, whose anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years earlier resulted in 533 children. David must now embark on a journey that leads him to discover not only his true self but also the father that he could become.
A DreamWorks Pictures and Reliance Entertainment presentation, the film is written for the screen and directed by Ken Scott, based on “Starbuck,” the original screenplay written by Ken Scott and Martin Petit, and also stars Chris Pratt and Cobie Smulders. “Delivery Man” is produced by André Rouleau and executive produced by Ray Angelic, Scott Mednick and Mark Sourian.
Our review of the Delivery Man:
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this movie. I love Vince Vaughn and find him hilarious in movies such as Wedding Crashers and the Internship, but this movie didn’t seem to have the same carefree, immaturity that normally accompanies Vince Vaughn. When the movie began, we saw the typical Vince Vaughn character, a well meaning, do-gooder, who is struggling to find his way in the world. When he finds out he is a father of 533 children, he finally sees a purpose to his life and goes about trying to be a father in his children’s lives. I did have difficulty with the concept that 1) a fertility company would only use one donor, 2) they would release this information to the public, and 3) the release of this information would allow all 533 children to find one another. That being said, I do feel that the movie rectified itself through the legal trial and the key points made by the lawyer. The movie was entertaining, allowed some of Vince Vaughn’s comedic personality to shine though, and provide a dramatic feel to the seriousness of the situation. I laughed, I cried, and I cheered for the choices made in this movie. It is a great date movie and I would highly recommend it!
