“Delivery Man”

I’m not really sure how I feel about sperm donation being made into comedic movies, and to be honest I stay away from them, but I like Vince Vaughan so maybe????? What about everyone else, how do you feel about this and other movies that have been made portraying families created using sperm donors?

    Hi Allison!!!

    In general, I find that people are better able to sympathize with something if it’s presented in a non-threatening way (something they can laugh at while beginning to kind of “get” it). For a populace that largely views sperm donation as “icky” and is too ready to react with a knee-jerk to the topic – if the movie can help make people empathize with those involved, I think that’s a good thing. Given how prevalent donor-conceived families actually are, it really is “normal” even if few are willing to talk about it. I expect we’ll see more pop-media treatment as folks break the “cone of silence” on the issue.

    On that theme…check out this recently-published London Health Sciences article about my wife and my fertility journey. I’ve gotten a few comments from friends and associates about our willingness to publicly talk about my infertility…somewhat uncommon for a man 🙂

    Back to the topic, I’d like to see both Delivery Man and the French film it’s based on, Starbuck to appreciate the issues they both raise.
