I saw Delivery Man back in July. I have a confession to make: the reason I accepted the invite wasn’t because I was super thrilled to see this movie. It was more because I knew a lot of my friends would be there and it would be a two hour quiet reprieve in the middle of a busy blogging conference and my introverted self would take the excuse for a breather.
But then I watched the Delivery Man trailer, and I thought that it looked sort of cute, so it made me go into the movie with a bit more of an open mind instead of just thinking Vince Vaughn, 533 kids through a sperm donation gone wrong = silliest movie premise ever.
Y’all? I was so wrong with my initial impression. I adored Delivery Man.
It is funny and a little silly. But it also has an incredible amount of heart.
You know those movies that you fall in love with, the ones that you stop and watch every single time they come on tv, no matter how many times you’ve watched them? Delivery Man is going to be one of those movies for me.
It’s not a specifically holiday-themed movie, but it has the warm-fuzzy feeling of a Christmas movie. I even teared up at one or two parts. At a Vince Vaughn movie. Who knew?
Delivery Man would make for a perfect date movie. Maybe at the end of a long day of holiday shopping with your spouse: unless your kids are older, you’re probably not going to want to go into the explanation of how exactly “Starbuck” is the father of 533 children. It is rated PG-13, so I won’t be letting my 5, 7, and 8 year olds watch it(even if I did take my oldest to see Catching Fire this week).
What holiday movie are you most looking forward to seeing this year?
It’s movie season! Be sure to check out my Catching Fire review, too!
