I had it. I had pitched the perfect game, and I had to screw the whole thing up. My mother saw the whole thing on TV.
She must have been surprised to find out that you had a male lover.
No. She said she always suspected it. She told me we would make a lovely couple.
And your kids?
They think it's cool.

David Wozniak (Vince Vaughn) is irresponsible and needs $80k after investing in a pyramid scheme. He works for the family meat shop. His latest scheme is to start growing pot. His girlfriend Emma (Cobie Smulders) tells him that she's pregnant. She decides to raise the baby by herself rather than relying on him. His lawyer friend Brett (Chris Pratt) warns him against children. Then a lawyer from the sperm bank tells him that his donations spawned 533 children and many of them are suing to discover his identity. He is given the kids' profiles and starts getting involved in their lives.
This has some limited laughs. To me, Vaughn is wearing out his welcome as a comedian. He is better off trying to transition away from his loudmouth brash character. This movie has more heart than laughs anyways. It works better as a light drama. He works quite well in that capacity. However I wish this has more substance. With so many kids, this feels a mile wide and an itch deep. There are apparently no other parents in any of these kids' lives. Also I don't like the $100k debt story. That part takes the story to a different place which conflicts with the general tone of the movie.
