Comedy
Quebecois with English

"Patrick Huard stars as David Wozniak, a middle aged slacker who works as a delivery driver for the family meat business. A life long loser, his latest scheme is a failed grow-op of which he owes the local gangsters a large sum of cash. One day a stranger turns up in his house with the announcement that David is the biological father of 533 children, the result of numerous sperm donations he made in his twenties under the alias of Starbuck (a legendary Canadian Holstein bull) A large number of which have filed a class action lawsuit to determine the identity of their father.

Where the film really shines is after David receives a file with all the bios of the children in the lawsuit. Curiosity gets the better of him and he looks them up one by one, first just to observe, but soon he is showing up anonymously in their lives to lend a hand, like a self styled guardian angel. Not exactly plausible, but fortunately the scenarios are rather well written, carefully straddling the line between sappy and genuinely touching; and the talented Huard has a natural charisma which makes his character a joy to watch."
