Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Delivery Man isn't your typical raunchy Vince Vaughn "frat pack" comedy. It's an American remake of a well-respected 2011 French-Canadian dramedy, Starbuck, about a 40-something slacker who discovers 142 of his biological children from anonymous sperm donation demand to know his identity. The movie, while mostly a comedy, contains some surprisingly heavy themes such as drug addiction, disability, and a potentially offensive abortion joke. The humor can be mature and sexual in nature (since Vaughn's character is famous for donating sperm more than 600 times, there are countless masturbation jokes), and there is drug use (a young woman overdoses on heroin) and marijuana plants (the main character tries to grow it at home) in the movie. Occasionally there's language ("s--t," "bitch"), but it's not overwhelming. Parents and teens who see it should be able to discuss parenthood and how it changes your life (hopefully for the better).
- Sexual Content
- While there are just a few kisses in the movie (straight and gay), there are plenty of jokes about sperm donation and masturbation. Before his identity is revealed, David is called "The Masturbator" in the press for donating more than 600 times to a fertility clinic. The masturbation jokes are frequent once the case goes public.
- There's a disturbing scene when a young woman overdoses on heroin (she has a belt wound around her arm and a needle is next to her on the bed). Enforcers nearly drown both Dave and later his father in a bathtub looking for their boss' money.
- Occasional language includes "s--t," "bitch," "what the hell," "damn," "loser," "idiot," "stupid."
- Social Behavior
- The movie has positive messages about the importance of fathers and the idea that family isn't limited to the traditional idea of a mother, father, and kids. David's story also indicates how fatherhood changes a man and makes him more aware of what he has to offer his children.
- Brands include: Isuzu delivery truck; Gourmet Garage supermarket; several references to the New York Knicks (including a game and an assortment of memorabilia); Apple products.
- Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
- David grows marijuana at home. One of his 533 kids is a young woman who's addicted to drugs; she overdoses on heroin and is rushed to the hospital. Grown-ups drink, and one of David's adult sons is so drunk he has to be physically placed in a cab home.
