Delivery Man was not really what I expected, it turned out to be a pleasant surprise bearing in mind I haven't seen the original French Canadian film (Starbuck) it was based on or know much about the true life case that inspired it. It's a little more serious and dramatic in tone at times but still pretty funny.

Vince Vaughn plays David, a man who following a balls up at a fertility clinic finds himself the father of 500+ young adults. Despite his anonymity clause many of these people are attempting to find out who their biological father is. While David and his his best bud/lawyer are fighting a legal case to stay anonymous, he starts to take an interest in exactly who and what he has sired, tracking them down and becoming involved in their lives (without revealing his own identity). They range from an NBA basketball player to a busker, to a drug addict to a life guard and beyond.

Vaughn drops much of his usual loud mouth schtick and plays a more subtle role here. Whilst the film could have gone down the route of a raucous, coarse, knob gag kind of film (not that there's anything wrong with that) it's all a bit gentler and warmer than that. It's still pretty funny mind you with Chris Pratt as the best bud/lawyer stealing most of the best gags, he's almost as good here as he is in Parks and Recreation.

The bulk of the film follows the interaction between David and his various kids, continuing the family theme there are subplots involving David's brothers and father as well as his current pregnant girlfriend played by Cobie Smulders (in a sadly underwritten role). Overall though I enjoyed it more than I thought I might, warm funny and thoughtful stuff.

'David' (Vince Vaughn) works as a delivery man for the family meat business
his life is a shambles, not only is he a useless Deliveryman, he's also $80,000 in debt.
There is nobody out there that can or will bail him out, he's got zero collateral.
One day he arrives home to find a lawyer waiting for him, several years ago he had been a
sperm donor, in fact a regular contributor, for payment of course.
The Lawyer informs him that his sperm had been used to help over 600, he'd actually fathered
533 children, 142 of which want to know who their biological father really is, the decision on
whether they find out or not, is 'David' himself, or should he leave the 142 wondering who
'Starbuck' really is ?
He is handed a folder with the profile of the 142, his friend 'Brett' (Chris Pratt) advises him not
to open the folder.
In the meantime 'David's' on-off girlfriend 'Emma' (Cobi Smulders) informs him that she's
pregnant....mmm,
Well curiosity gets the better of 'David' he opens the folder, then one by one try's to actually
meet, see each of the 142 without them being aware of who he is.
After a visit to a counselling meeting by the agency for the 142, several of the siblings that had
met him gather around him after the meeting, as a friend, despite 'Brett's help and advice,
'David's' family is about to expand some.
'David' at last begins to have a purpose in life, his love life with 'Emma' and the Baby also looks
to be falling into place.
One hell of a lot of 'Birthday' Cards to buy ?
It's a decent watch with several amusing moments and situations, maybe not as funny as it
might have been.
Good Picture and Sound Quality.

Format: DVD
David (Vince Vaughn) has trouble delivering meat, but not fathering children. As a donor he has sired 533 children of which 142 remarkably including a mentally handicapped somewhat vegetated kid in a wheel chair, demand to know who their biological father is. David has financial problems and a pregnant girlfriend. David is given the profiles of the 142. He visits his biological children, helping them out without telling them who he is.

This is a lukewarm formulaic comedy. It shied away from an overly crude "wrestle the dragon alone" humor to make a film that more of the family could see. It is a story for modern times as we experience extended families. In David's world all men are truly brothers. More of a light feel good drama than comedy.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.

People expexting a laugh out loud movie will be disappointed. However this film is clever, touching and beautiful to watch. It has more layers then I ever expected of a vince Vaughn movie and proof that he can do more then just comedy.

The plot is nice & simple,sperm donor who discovers he has 533 children & around 140 of them now want to know who thier father is.
He's made over 600 donations & it turns out his sperm was SO good it was over used,some of his off spring challenge his right to aninimity.Just to complicate things a little more,his girlfriend his pregnant & wants him to get a life,time to face up to the past.

Whilst being quite heart warming at times,this is just not funny enough.At times it's closer to being a wishy washy drama that happens to be mildly amusing & that's all it is,mildly amusing.
Watchable but should have been much much funnier,surely the subject matter has a moutain of decent laughs,unused,in a heap somewhere.
