Maybe I'm a purist... but we soooo loved "Starbuck," the Canadian original of this movie, that we were pretty hostile when we heard about this remake. This time we're in luck. Writer/director Ken Scott ("Starbuck") used Martin Petit's original screenplay as his source, so we know this beloved script is in good hands, AND they didn't exaggerate or overplay anything as so often happens in American remakes. Whew!

Briefly, a young man made over 500 anonymous donations to a sperm bank a couple of decades ago because he was paid for each contribution (wait until you figure out how he used the money). Then, through a technical bungle, his were the only donations used for a year. Now, 142 of his offspring have filed a class action lawsuit to identify their father.

Here is the cast:
* Vince Vaughn ("Couples' Retreat") David really needed the money back when he lived next door to the sperm bank, now he's a delivery man for his father's butcher shop, kinda going nowhere, but happily contented and blithely unaware of that former bungle.
* Chris Pratt ("Zero Dark Thirty") is Brett, our hero's best friend. He washed out of legal practice but wants to defend David and help him maintain his anonymity. Since the news hit the tabloids about that lawsuit, Starbuck has become a punch line!
* Cobie Smulders ("Safe Haven") is Emma, the woman in his life. Now that this cop is pregnant, she is having second thoughts about David's ability to be a good father. She thinks she would be better off going it alone.

This has a very, very large cast: we meet David's father and two married brothers, and then, when he takes a peek in the envelope that identifies all the parties to the lawsuit, we meet a number of those offspring.

Delivery Man is about a meat delivery guy (Vaughn) who finds out he's fathered 533 children through anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years ago and not must decide whether or not to come forward when 142 of them file a lawsuit to reveal his identity

Up until watching this, I didn't realize that this a remake of a Canadian version of the film with basically the same script. I cannot say if this is better or worse than the original.

Vince Vaughn is his normal comedic self in this movie with his quick witted humor throughout. There are moments in the movie that are laugh out loud but this movie is more of a sentimental, heartwarming movie than a comedy with some really nice moments (the disabled child moment for example). The movie has a great message about the diversity of family.

Overall an ok comedy that ends up being sweet more than funny but does have its moments of humor.

Everyone needs family, for support, love or help. The movie Delivery Man all emphasizes these factors. The plot follows David (Vince Vaughn) who delivers meat to businesses; his struggle is having a stable family for himself. His girlfriend has is pregnant but does not let him be the father. David then finds out there are 533 children who are his biological children due to his past donations to a donor bank. He decides to visit each of the children to see where they are now. But these children are not kids; they are all in their late teens. He decides to make a meeting date where all 533 children can come visit each other. He creates the name Starbuck as the name of the mystery father. These children then demand to know who their father is but the law of the court denies the release of father. The ending is bitter sweet, thus you have to watch this movie.

The moral of the story is to keep close people closer to you because they might help you. During the movie there are many scenes devoted to show what condition each child is presently enduring. From a musician to a beauty stylist all the children have different careers which are so important on effecting David’s emotional connection to each child. One child keeps David continuously visiting, the child with special needs. The child is in a care center and has no one visit until David comes. During the movie, David and special needs child create a family sense and warmth. This part of the movie stuck with me and really pulled my heart strings.

Overall the movie emphasizes on the importance of family. Furthermore, it also gives the audience the message of caring for other people you might not know. The comedy is apparent in this movie, but the jokes were a bit for adults.

I loved this movie , It was a guy's worst fear and maybe joy to be a father. I think most people couldn't handle this situation, it would be overwhelming to be sure. The movie was well done and it clicked with me, i really enjoyed it, I like comedies and this resonated well with me. I think many people will enjoy this one

This movie was perfect for what I was looking for. Something I can veg out on the couch to watch without having to think too hard about what was going on. Glad I didn't see it in the theater, but worth the rental.

Great movie. How a fertility banks mistake turns Vince Vaughn's life upside down, that is until he decides to peek in the envelope that holds all the information to prosecute the fertility bank. What's in the envelope are bio's of every child he had fathered. Then he starts to go hang out with them, ends up becoming a big brother, mentoring and helping in small ways. He establishes relationships with each and every one but still wants to remain anonymous because he's afraid these kids are trying to find out who their father is because they are angry. But finds out that's not the case, they just want the right to have a relationship with the missing link. After reading about everyone he see's how he can enter into the lives of all these great all these kids who really just want a dad. Then he admits to them who he is, their biological father after making a difference in each young adults life. In the end it's all right side up. While this seems almost crazy, if you think about it for a moment and how po college students were and continued to be in the 60's ,70's and 80's. This was the easiest way to make money and a great source of revenue for many. It could have actually happened!!!:) so it's funny, sincere and a bit real.
