A Vince Vaughn remake of this French/Canadian comedy is already in the works - but just because it’s about an amiable slacker whose past life as a serial sperm donor catches up with him, doesn’t mean it’s a gross-out affair.
Instead, it’s a sweet if schmaltzy crowd-pleaser as ‘Starbuck’ (Patrick Huard) secretly embroils himself in the affairs of his 533 biological children.
It’s too risk-averse to ask awkward questions but works as a wry satire of fatherhood.
Huard’s charm offsets the plots contrivances, while Ken Scott’s finely balanced direction humanises the high concept.
