QUICK TAKE:
Dramedy: A delivery truck driver decides to change his life upon learning that his donations to a sperm bank decades ago resulted in hundreds of children being born, with many of them now wanting to learn his identity.
PLOT:
David Wozniak (VINCE VAUGHN) is a delivery truck driver who delivers meat for the company run by his father, Mikolaj (ANDRZEJ BLUMENFELD), where he works alongside his more responsible brothers, Victor (SIMON DELANEY) and Alesky (BOBBY MOYNIHAN). Desperate to make money to repay a substantial sum that he owes some thugs, David's life is less than ideal and he's generally considered unreliable by most everyone, including his cop girlfriend, Emma (COBIE SMULDERS), who's learned she's pregnant by him.

His virility really comes into play when he learns that his plentiful donations to a sperm bank decades ago -- under the pseudonym "Starbuck" -- resulted in the birth of 533 children, 142 of which want to know his identity that has otherwise remained anonymous since then. David's longtime friend, single father of four and lawyer, Brett (CHRIS PRATT), wants to make sure that latter condition remains in force. That goal is jeopardized, however, when David can't keep himself from opening a package containing printout sheets that list all of the kids he sired.

Without informing them about who he really is, he tries to peek into their lives. That includes aspiring actor Josh (JACK REYNOR); young heroin addict Kristen (BRITT ROBERTSON); Ryan (SEBASTIAN RENE) who's institutionalized with cerebral palsy or something similar, and Viggo (ADAM CHANLER-BERAT), a needy young man who latches onto David once he figures out that he's his biological father. Trying to be something of a guardian angel to them and others, David jeopardizes his chances of remaining anonymous -- that includes legal action from the other side to reveal his identity -- all while keeping that secret from Emma.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Unless they're fans of someone in the cast or find the plot intriguing, it doesn't seem too likely.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For thematic elements, sexual content, some drug material, brief violence and language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
