There is a new movie coming to theaters in November from our friends over at Disney. It’s called Delivery Man and it hopes to show us what it really means to be a family. I was lucky to receive an advanced viewing of this new trailer and I’m proud to be able to share it with you first. That’s right, the Delivery Man trailer is premiering on 533 different blogs right now (including this one). So, check it out now to figure out why it’s exactly 533 different blogs posting the trailer.
This movie is starring Vince Vaughn and it truly shows us what it means to be a family. When Vince’s character learns that he has mistakenly fathered 533 children, he then learns more about his children. It’s hard to imagine being surprised with children, muchless that many. So, it’s impossible for me to say what I would do if I was in his situation. However, I truly treasure the time I get to spend with friends and family. I am pretty close with my family, especially my mom now that my dad passed away. Losing dad really changed our family, beyond our household. I’m not as close with dad’s side of the family now because it’s just too hard for me.
I definitely hold my friends close now. I’m significantly closer to my online friends than the ones I’ve known my whole life. This past year, I’ve gotten to know more bloggers and gotten closer to some. I’ve been really thankful to have them in my life these past few months. In fact, I would consider some of them to be my family at this point. I turn to them for support before I even consider reaching out to my real family or in real life friends. So, my view of what a family is has changed in the past few months.
I imagine that Vince’s character in Delivery Man changes his perception of what it means to be a family will change even more than mine has recently. Take a look at the trailer to see what it’s all about.
So, what did you think of the Delivery Man trailer? Do you plan to see it when it comes out on November 22nd? What does being a family mean to you?
