(2013) (Vince Vaughn, Chris Pratt) (PG-13)
- 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.
- 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.
