Delivery Man was released on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD/SD and Video On-Demand last week. It’s not as funny as I thought it would be, but it is a good movie. The film is about a man who discovers he fathered 533 children. At first he’s in shock and doesn’t know what to do. But then he randomly selects children to visit. He doesn’t tell them who he is, but tries to help them in his own way. Delivery Man (Dreamworks Pictures) stars Vince Vaughn as the man who fathered 533 children.

6 Things About Delivery Man
The Delivery Man parents his 533 children in his own way
In the film, David Wozniak is the father of 533 children. Many years ago, David made over 600 donations to a sperm bank so he could raise money for a family trip to Europe. When David finds out about his children, he hides his identity from them. He’s never had kids before so he doesn’t really know how to be a parent of 533 kids. To be honest, I wouldn’t know how to be a dad of so many children either. In fact, I might even do the same thing he did — visit each child individually and anonymously.
The main character has a change in perspective
At the start of the story, David is a loser. He makes one bad decision after another. But after he finds out about his 533 children, David’s priorities and perspective on life begin to change. It doesn’t happen over night, but as he spends more time with his kids, David becomes a better person. In my opinion, his children helped him as much as he helped them.
He’s like a guardian angel
As I mentioned previously, David didn’t reveal his true identity to his kids. Instead, he goes undercover and meets some of his children. He gets to know them and tries to help them in the best way he can without revealing his true identity. In a way, he was acting like their guardian angel. I think this is something all parents can relate to. We love our children and want them to succeed. We dote on them and sometimes we even do things to help without them even knowing about it.
Delivery Man is rated PG-13
The 105-minute film is rated PG-13 for thematic elements, sexual content, some drug material, brief violence and language. I don’t recall any nudity, but I think there was some talk related to sex.
Chris Pratt steals the show
Vince Vaughn did a good job playing the main character, David Wozniak. I thought he was very believable as the loser who later turns into a good mentor for his children. However, I really enjoyed the scenes with Chris Pratt in them. He played the part of Brett, the main character’s best friend and lawyer. I thought he was very funny in the scenes he was in. Delivery Man also featured Cobie Smulders (Emma), Britt Robertson (Kristen), Jack Reynor (Josh), Bobby Moynihan (Aleksy), Chris Hernandez (Biological Son), Erin Gerasimovich (Brett’s 6 year old), Camille Kitt (Twin Daughter), Matthew Daddario (Channing), Vanessa Coelho (biological child), Takako Haywood (Bloomingdale’s employee), Dave Patten (Adam), and Glenn Fleshler (coffee shop owner). Delivery Man was directed by Ken Scott.
