The Definition of Family

I’m at Reviewer’s Retreat right now {speaking, ack!!} and I’ve been pondering how we look at family.

Of course, we think about those we live with, those we grew up with, our biological {or adoptive} family.

But really, when you think about it, in today’s world, family encompasses any number of things.

We bloggers are like a family. We share, we love, we get upset, we help.

Family comes in all forms, and it can be beautiful in any form it takes.

Family shouldn’t be equated with perfection and an absence of fighting, drama, and abnormality, though, and I think the upcoming Disney movie, Delivery Man, is a testament to that.

In the movie, Vince Vaughn plays a man who, unbeknownst to him, fathered 533 children. *gasp* Don’t worry, it was through anonymous fertility clinic donations. :)

Crazy, yes, but where does the family connection come in? 142 of the 533 children want to meet their biological father, and he is faced with the decision to reveal himself or not.

Take a look at this never-before-seen trailer because it really adds the warmness of this movie that can’t be conveyed by text alone.

See, don’t we just love movies like this that make us look to ourselves and our own families to make sure we’re really maximizing what we have? Love it!

Delivery Man will be in theaters November 22nd!
