Comedy



Manic energy and a snarky attitude have been Vince Vaughn's main character traits in so many movies crafted by lazy filmmakers that it's easy to mistake Vaughn as being responsible. So it comes as a small surprise that this remake of the French-Canadian hit Starbuck offers Vaughn his most nuanced starring role in more than a decade. Vaughn stars as David Wozniak, a meat delivery driver for his family's business in Manhattan. A lawyer representing a sperm donor facility David frequented more than two decades earlier reveals that, because of an administrative mistake, he is the father of over 100 children, which seems like the cue for Vaughn's trademark shtick. But writer-director Ken Scott' script allows David's relative goodness to shine through slowly but steadily. But while Scott tones down the antics, Vaughn is still a weak actor barely able to rise to the occasion, and the script still can't rise above the solutions given to conflicts in a mediocre television sitcom.
