Fonzy review

After flogging sperm to a fertility clinic 20 years ago, a middle-aged zero (José Garcia) finds out he’s the father of 500 children, many of whom are now looking for him.

If the plot sounds familiar, it should. Fonzy is a French remake of 2011 film Starbuck , itself rejigged only recently as Vince Vaughn vehicle Delivery Man .

Does this premise really stretch to three versions? Probably not, but Fonzy still has its charms.

Director Isabelle Doval’s relentlessly upbeat take is warm and fluffy, but leaves the sugary sentiments for the tear-jerking final reel.
