Storyline

David Wozniak is a man who is irresponsible and unreliable which doesn't exactly endear him to his family and his girlfriend.

So they are going to court to try to get the confidentiality set aside. His lawyer tells him that they can win this. But when the lawyer who saw him gives him info on the ones who want to see him, he takes a peek at one and decides to go see him and not tell him he's the father.

A little disappointing but it still has a lot of heart.

'DELIVERY MAN': Three Stars (Out of Five)

Vince Vaughn stars in this remake of a 2011 French-Canadian comedy-drama film about a man who discovers he fathered 533 kids through sperm donations several years earlier. It was directed and co-written (with Martin Petit) by Canadian filmmaker/actor/comedian Ken Scott (who also performed the same duties on the original film, with Petit). The American version also co-stars Chris Pratt (who put on 60 pounds for the role) and Cobie Smulders. I haven't seen the original movie but I heard this update isn't as good, as far as Vince Vaughn films go it's a little disappointing but it still has a lot of heart.

Vaughn plays David Wozniak, a delivery driver for his family's butcher shop who's recently came into some serious debt problems and owes some criminal thugs a lot of money. He's also just discovered that his girlfriend, Emma (Smulders), is pregnant but she doesn't know if she can trust David to be a reliable father. On top of all that he's also just discovered that he fathered 533 children, decades earlier, through sperm donations. He donated to the sperm bank under the alias 'Starbuck' but now 142 of his biological children are suing to know his true identity. He asks his lawyer/father friend, Brett (Pratt), to help him with the case as he starts to get to know some of his kids (for the first time) and help them out with different issues.

The movie is a good Christmas film and has a great positive message about parenting and the love between fathers and their kids. Vaughn, like always, is extremely likable in the flick and makes a great down on his luck but lovable father figure. It's not nearly as funny as most Vince Vaughn films used to be though and he seems content to play the role mostly for it's sentimentality rather than trying for big laughs. Like I said it has a lot of heart and the drama, for the most part, works but it is just a little too sappy at times (especially for a Vince Vaughn movie). It's not a bad film but it's definitely not nearly as good as what most have come to expect from a Vince Vaughn laugh fest.
