Delivery Man is one of those....well, it's predictable, nothing new but it helps to give a good laughter and lift one up. A movie that I'll recommend to anyone who wanna watch with their friends or even loved ones.
“Delivery Man” is a story about an affable underachiever David Wozniak (Vince Vaughn), whose mundane life gets twisted in a knot when he finds out that he fathered 533 children via sperm donations he made twenty years earlier. In debt to the mob, rejected by his pregnant girlfriend, things couldn’t look worse for David when he’s hit with a lawsuit from 142 of the 533 twenty somethings who want to know the identity of the donor. As David struggles to decide whether or not he should reveal his true identity, he embarks on a journey that leads him to discover not only his true self but the father he could become as well.
Alright, when I first read the synopsis, I was shocked and did a Google search on it and up come Starbuck. It was then that I realized this is a remake of the movie "Starbuck". Well, for those of you who not know, the "Starbuck" here has nothing to do with coffee but the name that David Wozniak used to conceal his real identity as a sperm donor.
The movie started with the right tone, with a setting that shows how lousy David was in doing his work...the parking tickets...how he showed up late and regardless of the countless times that he was reminded of the company jersey, he still managed to fail to get it done. There was a lot of funny scenes even at the start of the movie...the many failed attempts in getting a loan to repay his 100k debt to the mob. Then, his visit to his girlfriend, revealing about him becoming a father soon but his girlfriend, Emma preferred to deal it on her own...complaining about him being unreliable.

Well, after that comes the real deal...a lawyer appearing at his doorstep, telling him that he's hit with a lawsuit by 142 of the 533 twenty something children that he has after some error in the clinic of which he went to donate sperm under the name: "Starbuck".
After that, it was about his curiosity to find out these kids, to learn about them and know about their lives....and he even tried to be their "Guardian Angel".
Some of the chemistry between him and his "children" were awesome....of course, after some time, you will notice how unrealistic the movie is.
It was all sweet, lovely and amazing....this movie just make you feel hopeful...so if you're struggling with life, whether you are at your 20s or 40s, it doesn't really matter....there is always a chance to get things right.
