Sur 1 super idée (533 enfants, dont 142 veulent connaître leur père), Ken SCOTT (réal.) & Patrick HUARD (star) tissent 1 canevas sur la paternité. Original, sympa & décalé. Mention à David Giguère & sa chanson "L'Atelier". On a great idea (533 children, of whom 142 want to know their dad), Ken SCOTT & Patrick HUARD (leading role) weave a canvas on paternity. Original, nice & offbeat. Cool sound track by David GIGUERE
Strong Quebecois comedy from writer Ken Scott ripe for an inferior American remake. Patrick Huard stars as a man who suddenly finds out he has fathered over 500 children from donations made years ago and has to come to terms with accepting it or remaining hidden. Huard, a true star in Quebec, rings true in this montreal set comedy. By no terms deep and a little hackneyed but a crowd pleaser for sure.
My dad wanted to see this because a co-worker of his told him it was great; so I came along with him. This was completely off my radar and I had never heard of it before. As such I went in completely blind. This was a pleasant surprise and it is genuinely touching.I f you told anyone the premise, they might be skeptical, but you only have to see it to realize how special and great it is. One of the year's best.
The premise is farcical enough to make for a good comedy, but sadly Starbuck is not as funny as it should have been. It's also way too sentimental for my taste. That said, "Starbuck" has a couple of things going for it: a warm and funny performance by Patrick Huard and the fact that everyone speaks with a thick French Canadian accent, which in itself is an endless source of unintentional comedy.
