It really doesn’t have either the wit or chutzpah of Starbuck, the 2011 French-language Canadian sitcom on which it is based – which is odd, because the new film is written and directed by the same team of Ken Scott and Martin Petit. But those objections are washed away by the ingratiating performance of Vince Vaughn as David Wozniak, a lackadaisical but lovable meat delivery truck driver from Brooklyn who discovers he’s the biological father of 533 children – now grown – from his former career as a champion sperm bank donor. Vaughn has the knack of encapsulating the bewilderment of modern life. He’s the king of “heartfelt comedy.” Also with Chris Pratt, Cobie Smulders, and Andrzej Blumenfeld (103 min.).
