Review: Starbuck, David Wozniak
Patrick Huard stars as David Wozniak, a feckless fortysomething with a meat-delivery job he's failing at and debts running to $80 grand.
He also has a pregnant girlfriend who's not sure she wants his help in raising their child. But this last is as nothing to a larger parenthood problem that's been lying in wait: back in the 1980s, David was a prolific donor at his local sperm bank, and under the pseudonym "Starbuck" helped sire 533 children.
Now anonymity laws have changed and 142 of these young adults want to meet him. Ken Scott and co-writer Martin Petit keep the comic suspense ticking along, and in Huard they have a likeable and disarming lead.
