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.
Features -
* Building Family.
* 'Vince Vaughn' off the cuff.
* Deleted Scene.

Overlong. Badly acted.

The screenplay is borderline racist - a laugh cue when one of the main character's kids (533 of them) is non-white? The last time that sorry joke was ever presented was in 1980s Brit sitcoms.

As delivery comedies go, Delivery Man is on a par with Sex Lives Of The Potato Men [DVD] [2004], except that the latter at least raised the odd laugh.

I'm not clever and I know ****-all about film. But a lot of the dialogue in this, you can guess the next line a lot of the time, and you're right. And you can also guess the ending a mile off.

The only thing Delivery Man delivers is total, utter and complete pish. Avoid.

An OK film about a delivery man who donated sperm as a student and now twenty years later over 100 of the resulting children, having reached the age when they have the right to find their biological father, form a group to force him to reveal his identity. The comedy is swamped by typical over sentimentality so prevalent in American films but it's worth watching if you've got nothing better to do.

Well I am a sucker for RomComs. The scenario is based on a darker reality but is nonetheless a possibility and makes one think of the complex interplay of genetics and relationships, nature and nurture, all that good stuff. Thought provoking and yet romantically light hearted. It is perhaps a little over sentimental even for my taste but then it is American.

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.
