Delivery Man (Ken Scott)

David Wozniak has always led a calm life: he delivers meat for the family business, and although he has a good heart, David is immature and unreliable with many debts. But when Wozniak finds out that he is the biological father of 533 children due to sperm donations made 20 years ago, everything changes... Delivery Man is a about the hardships of life and how we should seize opportunities in order to become better people.

Starring: Vince Vaughn, Chris Pratt, Cobie Smulders, Dave Patten, Adam Chanler-Berat, Britt Robertson, Jack Reynor, Amos VanderPoel, Matthew Daddario

My thoughts on this film: This is not only about children searching for a father, but a father searching for the meaning of the term itself. It is particularly lovely to see David interact, silently, with his profoundly disabled son, and a guaranteed tearjerker.
David’s inability to grow up serves as a launching pad to asking some pretty fascinating questions about what it means to take responsibility not just for your own life, but for the lives of those you helped bring into this world. Of course, given that this is first and foremost a comedy, plenty of time is devoted to exploring the absurdity of the situation.
In the end, I took from this movie the fact that we should accept the people we care about, warts and all, and trust that they will always stand by us when we need them the most. For those who find themselves alone in this world, that defines 'family' just as much as sharing our genes with someone who, by choice or by fate, has fallen out of our lives.
