"You're never quite ready for what life delivers." Delivery Man is Vince Vaughn playing a similar role to what he has done several times in his career. He is a total dead beet meat truck driver that has accrued a significant amount of debt. He finds out that several of the children born from his sperm donations are creating a lawsuit to remove his anonymity. Although his character is lost and has no direction, his one redeeming quality is that he has a heart of gold. As a result, he begins to try and make a difference in many of the children's lives while keeping his anonymity as their father.
I didn't know whether to expect laughs, inspiration, or drama from the film going in. What I found is that there is a little of each, but not enough to define the movie or make it truly memorable. Don't get me wrong, the movie has many redeeming qualities and delivers a strong message of family and brotherhood/sisterhood amongst siblings, even those brought together through similar circumstances. I felt the message was a good one and enjoyed the film. That being said, I think most people will be content to save some money and wait for it to hit the Redbox. If you are a fan of Vince Vaughn, it won't disappoint you. If you are not a fan of his acting or movies, skip it altogether. Personally I don't mind him, so for me it was good entertainment.
Parent's Note: The film has some profanity in it, but nothing rampant. There is one noticeable (and quite humorously placed) use of the "F Bomb." There is limited violence, mainly consisting of some thugs trying to get the money they are owed. There are several references to lewd behavior including masturbation. Drug use is implied, but nothing is seen. There are also two brief moments of homosexuality where two men are seen kissing briefly on the lips.
