Starbuck focuses on David Wozniak, a lovable, middle-aged man who's a bit of a train-wreck. A disappointment to his family and his pregnant girlfriend Valerie - he also owes a decent amount of money to some loan sharks. Yet things are about to get even worse. His life is upended when a lawyer informs him he's fathered no less than 533 children via his regular sperm bank donations more than two decades earlier, under the nickname Starbuck. And now a hundred or so of the young-adult offspring have gotten together to take legal action to reveal the true identity of their father.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: "Starbuck" is up to its eyeballs in mush. You may want to regurgitate.
Fresh: As amiable art-house fluff, it's a passable way to kill time before the Vince Vaughn American remake later this year.
Fresh: Director Ken Scott, who also cowrote the script with Martin Petit, has fashioned a story that starts out low-key and gradually builds in its emotional expansiveness.
Fresh: "Starbuck" is essentially a situation comedy, but what a situation.
Low budget film with charm, wit, comedy. A movie that will leave a smile on your face for some time. Tired of senseless movies? Good, me too. So This one is a must see!
Very surprising find
A touching movie about a man that learns he has fathered more then 500 children threw a clinic and some of them wanted to know who he was just as he found out that the woman he loves is going to get birth to what he thought was his first child.
it isn't your average feel good type of movie. But it does still make you feel good. To see the main character man up and do what he did took guts. How many people do you know that would do that in real life. Not many I would say. as a adopted child myself movies where real families get back together have always been some of my favorites.
See it now
Great and fun film that exams a lighthearted approach to life. See the original before the Vince Vaughn remake makes it out.
