What would you do if one day you found out you had 533 children?That’s exactly what happens to David (Vince Vaughn) in Delivery Man. David donated to a sperm bank quite a few years ago and due to a mix-up in the lab, he is the biological father of 533 children.
The kicker is that these 533 kids want to know who David is.
David sets out find out about these kids. And what he discovers is that kids change you.
You don’t need 533 kids to have your life completely altered by a tiny human being. You know right from the start that things are changing. You find out you are pregnant, start puking, stop sleeping, and live in a constant state of discomfort. Which will pretty much continue until your death if you are a parent.
You will never stop worrying about your kids, being sick to your stomach, losing sleep, and just constantly being uncomfortable about something in their lives. But once you hold that tiny human being in your arms, other things change. Everything changes.
When my sons were born, my priorities, my goals, my purpose, my direction all changed. It stopped being about me and what I wanted and became about what was best for them. I know this for certain when I buy a video game instead of a new pair of shoes. I know this for certain when at the end of a day, there are no two people I want to be with more. I know that I am thoroughly changed when a hug and a kiss from my sons makes the worst day better. I know I am a better person because I make better choices because I am a parent.
What you find out when you have kids, and what David finds out in Delivery Man, is that kids make you discover your true self. David found his true self, his actual life by searching out his long lost children in a heartwarming movie.
I found my true self through hours of rocking and singing, dirty diapers, homework, school performances, karate lessons, fussing, tears, hugs, and kisses.
