Wow – this movie was NOT what I expected! With Vince Vaughn, I was thinking I’d just get a bunch of one-liners and crude humor and not much story. I couldn’t have been more wrong. It was funny in parts, but actually felt more like a serious movie or drama than a comedy. The story is that David Wozniak learns he’s the biological father of 533 children through sperm donations he made twenty years earlier and now 142 of them are suing to find out his identity. He’s also just found out that his girlfriend is pregnant and doesn’t think he has what it takes to be a father. This could have gone a number of different ways, but it became a very emotional, heartwarming movie where he cared about EVERY single one of his children. He wanted to know them and help them – to be the dad he’s never been to them, even though he wasn't sure if he could tell them who he really was. It also wasn’t full of unnecessary swearing, sex, and shock humor, which was a nice change from most movies these days. Vince Vaughn gives a very heartfelt performance and I’m glad I watched it!
