See the full gallery. At 42, David lives the life of an irresponsible adolescent. He coasts through life with minimal effort and maintains a complicated relationship with Valerie, a young policewoman.
Just as she tells him she's pregnant, David's past resurfaces. Twenty years earlier, he began providing sperm to a fertility clinic in exchange for money.
He discovers he's the father of children, of whom have filed a class action lawsuit to determine the identity of their biological father, known only by the pseudonym Starbuck.
Written by Anonymous. I have not heard of it, and the title was not catchy, however when I read in the information that there will be an American version to be done, I became curious so I went on to watch it.
I did not regret it. For a movie that began with the uncomfortable scene of a guy donating sperm in a sperm bank. From such an inauspicious beginning, what unfolds is actually a heartwarming story of David Wozniak Patrick Huard , a middle-aged man whose life of non-commitment changes radically when he discovers that he had actually fathered more than kids via his multiple sperm donations done when he was a young man.
When of these kids file a class suit against the anonymous donor "Starbuck," will David reveal his secret identity? If he does, how will he face all of these newly-arisen paternal responsibilities?
Of course, there are scenes which may look cheesy for some, but viewed with the proper attitude without cynicism, these scenes are actually quite nice and even touching.
Since David's kids are all young adults already with individual personalities and problems, his approach to each one would have to be different based on the situation each kid is in.
The public controversy and discussion that arose when the news of the "Starbuck" case hit the tabloids is also very thought-provoking. This film was an unexpected delight.
It was good to know afterward that this movie actually received multiple nominations and even won awards at the Genie and various film festivals.
I am glad I caught it before the American version. It would be interesting to compare the treatment of the story. Looking for something to watch?

Starbuck was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival on 14—15 September ,  where it was runner-up for the People's Choice Award.
In September , Chris Knight, the chief film critic for the National Post , called it a "sparkling crowd-pleaser" based on a "ludicrous premise, sure.
But Scott's pithy script co-written by Martin Petit , linked to Huard's likeable layabout, makes the whole thing as easy to take as candy from a baby.
Upon its November UK release, Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian gave it two stars out of five, and called it a "lame comedy-drama" that loses "almost all the charm of the real story A French remake, Fonzy , was released in France on 30 October Scott co-wrote and directed an American remake, Delivery Man.

December 4, Full Review…. August 9, Full Review…. View All Critic Reviews Sep 02, While this film follows a more sitcom-y story, a man donates his sperm times in a 23 month span.
During a particularly rough period for the sperm bank, all of his donations are used, he then finds out he has fathered kids, of which are suing him, as he made his donations anonymously under the pseudonym of Starbuck, to reveal his identity.
That is a sitcom story if I ever saw one. I don't think the movie does go as deep as it could on a very real issue.
An issue that I don't think has been covered that much in films. Sperm donations and the effects, positive AND negative, that has on the families.
The positive side is that, even if the men are not aware of it at the time of donation, is that these men are doing something that will give another family the chance to have kids, when they may not have been able to otherwise.
The negative would be in the issues that these kids face in not knowing where they come from and issues coming to terms with the fact that they may not know who their biological father is.
The movie does touch on these themes, but in a light manner. I think the movie certainly overcomes its cliches thanks to a heartfelt and sweet story, even if it gets a little sentimental, and an incredibly likable performance from Patrick Huard as the eponymous Starbuck.
I do think the movie did sort of focus more a little on the "serious" side with Starbuck maturing as he goes around being his kids' guardian angel, but it's a good arc.
It's an easy arc to relate to, man tries to better himself in order to lead a more fulfilling life with his pregnant girlfriend. This is his chance to prove that he's a capable father to his first "real" child.
And I say "real" because he wasn't even aware he had fathered any kids until 23 years after he made his original donations. The movie is very entertaining and it is a fun movie to watch, even if it doesn't require a lot of brainpower to get through.
Not that it needed it, I think the movie's fine enough as it is. Do I think the movie could've handled its subject a little more seriously? Yes, but this movie was never intended to be that.
This was meant to be a movie about family relationships and how that affects us, so it served its purpose well. Wouldn't say that you should go out of your way to watch this movie, but it is a pretty damn entertaining one at that.
Jesse O Super Reviewer. Jun 16, Amazing French Canadian film. Very original, funny and touching. Wu C Super Reviewer.
Jan 19, Image the crude humour a film about this subject matter would encompass. Then watch this lovely Canadian film, with all its endearing characters, well-scripted humour and lighthearted entertainment.
Wonderful, sweet, funny. Please never ever allow for a Hollywood remake. Ina S Super Reviewer. Sep 15, Starbuck is a hilarious, witty, and heartwarming with a star-making performance from Patrick Huard.
Uneven though it may be, this dramedy goes in all kinds of directions and keeps you engrossed. See it by any means possible! Raymond W Super Reviewer.
