Being a parent to four kids is tough, and I struggle every day with whether I’m teaching them the best lessons to prepare for their own lives, but I can’t even imagine how ridiculously inept I’d feel to be responsible in some way for hundreds of children, as Vince Vaughn’s character does in the upcoming movie, DELIVERY MAN.
Vaughn’s character is an underachiever who seems a little lost in life. That is, until he finds out he’s fathered 533 children through anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years before. In the movie, 142 of them want to meet him and he has to decide whether to make that happen. In a way that only kids can do, he finds purpose in filling this fatherly role, even though the kids may not realize what he’s up to.
I’m able to share the trailer here as part of a promotion for the movie, produced by Walt Disney Studios. They’ve chosen 533 blogs to help share the trailer. Get it? 533 blogs…like 533 children? (Yeah, I feel a little special to have a role in the movie in this small way…parenting has a way of humbling you.)
As the trailer shows, it’s a comedy that celebrates family in a way that anyone with kids can appreciate. It also stars Cobie Smulders and Chris Pratt and will be in theaters November 22. It’s rated PG-13 for mature themes.
I personally can’t wait to see the movie. I often feel like my life as a parent could be a comedy. Plus, what parent can’t use a good laugh or two?
