What role does biology play in a “real” family?
Vince Vaughn’s latest role has triggered that question for me — once again. In Disney’s upcoming film, Delivery Man, Vaughn plays “an affable underachiever looking for his purpose in life,” when he finds out he’s fathered 533 children through anonymous donations to a fertility clinic 20 years ago. Now he must decide whether or not to come forward when 142 of them want to meet their biological father.”
Yes, the film is a comedy (rated PG-13 so don’t bring your littles) but it’s got a heartwarming element to it as Vaughn’s character searches for something more meaningful.
On a separate but related note, the film brings up the topic of nature vs. nurture — a question that’s always been one I can’t help but ponder.
Here’s my question to you: No matter how loving/fulfilling/etc. one’s life may ultimately be, if we aren’t raised by those we’re biologically connected to, will there always be some sort of loss in our hearts? Discuss.
I personally can’t wait to see the film, just to see the hilarious
