I was invited by Disney/DreamWorks to visit the New York City set of the movie Delivery Man while actors Vince Vaughn and Cobie Smulders were filming last December. While travel and accommodations were covered for me, no other compensation was received. Just this month, I was able to attend a local screening to see the final movie. All thoughts (and excitement) are my own.
I am so excited that Delivery Man is finally coming to theaters this weekend! I’ve been waiting for this movie to come out since I spent a day on the set and watched Vince Vaughn and Cobie Smulders film a scene in the movie.
I’m still disappointed that Vince’s impromptu song about the bloggers didn’t make the final cut.
About Delivery Man
In Delivery Man, Vince Vaughn plays an underachiever, David Wozniak, who is not content with what he’s been able to accomplish in his 40-ish years of life. He finds out, very unexpectedly, that an anonymous donation to a fertility clinic 20 years ago resulted in 533 children. The movie is all about David’s journey in discovering his children…and himself along the way. Because he has to stay anonymous, he decides to play “guardian angel” to as many of his children as possible. Some situations are funny and others are touching, but all of his experiences teach him the meaning of family and love.
DELIVERY MAN, rated PG-13, stars Vince Vaughn, Cobie Smulders and Chris Pratt and opens in theaters everywhere November 22.
What I thought about Delivery Man
I was pleasantly surprised by Delivery Man’s BIG HEART. While there was plenty of comedy mixed in to the movie (David’s best friend, Brett, played by actor Chris Pratt, added a lot of hilarious fatherhood material to the film!) I was touched by the many heart-felt scenes. I loved that there were so many small stories going on as David got to know some of his 500+ kids.
I think Delivery Man is a perfect date night movie or a girl’s night out. Because of some of the fertility clinic humor (you can imagine, I’m sure) and some brief but strong language, I wouldn’t recommend it for kids. However, I think my age bracket (plus or minus a decade or two on either side) will love the film. I found it a nice, refreshing change from what I normally see in the theaters. No big action. No violence or special effects. No 3D. Just a good story.
If you head out to the theaters to see Delivery Man this week, let me know what you think of it!
PS – the scene that I watched being filmed is the scene where David gets in to his delivery truck and is surprised to find Emma, his girlfriend, waiting for him inside. They cut a lot from the scene that we watched them film, but I loved that I recognized it immediately and knew exactly what they were going to say. Such a fun experience!
