Delivery Man is now available to own on Blu-ray, DVD, digital SD/HD, and On-Demand . Not knowing what to expect, my family and I popped in the disc to see what this movie was all about.
Delivery Man Official Synopsis
In this heartwarming comedy, underachiever David Wozniak (Vince Vaughn) learns he’s actually an overachiever — he’s fathered 533 children via donations made twenty years earlier! David soon discovers that the shock of his life might just be the best thing that’s ever happened to him. Along the way he discovers not only his true self, but also the father he could become. Also starring Chris Pratt and Cobie Smulders — and complete with bonus materials, including behind-the-scenes footage — it’s a feel-good movie that really delivers.
I’m the type that tends to judge a movie based on the main actors appearing in it. With Vince Vaughn as the film’s lead actor, I wasn’t sure if this movie would be too mature for a family movie night. Fortunately, we did enjoy it. The story was moving and Vaughn seemed to naturally fill his role as a lovable father. Parenthood/family is celebrated from all different angles.

While the movie was much better and sweetly emotional than anticipated, reasons for the PG-13 rating are very clear. Families might want to take note of the following scenes:
- There are some one-liners about how the donations were ‘acquired’.
- The main character grows ‘medicinal herbs’ in his house.
- Loan sharks attempt to drown the lead in his bathtub.
- There is a direct lip-to-lip kiss shot that tips off one son’s orientation.
Delivery Man offers a unique and solid storyline. The casting was exceptional and I love the diversity presented among the featured children. As a light and sweet movie, you may want to add it to your to rent/buy list.
