We gave it a C

What would you do if you suddenly found out that you’d fathered 533 kids years ago via anonymous sperm donation — and that 142 of those kids have now filed a lawsuit to discover your identity? In director Ken Scott’s remake of his own 2011 French-Canadian comedy Starbuck, Vince Vaughn plays a good-natured but incompetent meat-truck driver who finds himself in just that conundrum. Don’t expect to see Vaughn in his fast-talking loudmouth mode; this is a gentler performance that aims straight for the heartstrings. ”He’s a very genuine, sincere guy who’s trying to figure out his priorities,” the actor says. ”The situation is extreme, but the tone is very real and grounded.”
