DELIVERY MAN (2013) – My rating: 6/10

While this movie isn’t a complete waste of time, it’s close.  Vince Vaughn plays David/Starbuck a man who, at a low point in his life, donated his sperm to a fertility clinic, 629 times for $24,000, over a period of time.  Somehow the fertility clinic managed to inpregnate 533 women from all walks of life.  Because Starbuck signed a confidentiality agreement, he does not have to disclose who he is.  But again, somehow his donor name “Starbuck” is revealed and 142 of his children file a class action suit against the clinc for the right to know who their biological father is.  The whole premise for this movie brings a very profound issue to the surface.  How do you (the product of donor sperm) know when you meet someone, it’s not your sister or brother?  If you rely on the institution for protection from this sort of thing from happening, you’re screwed.  Things that make you go umh! Delivery Man drags at parts but was interesting enough not to walk out.  I kept wondering where this movie was going, so I watched till the end.  It was just okay.  I’m glad I didn’t spend the price of a movie ticket to see it.  Delivery Man is available on DVD, which is where it belongs.
