Starbuck Reviews

Al Alexander
The Patriot Ledger

Like they say in the sperm-donation business, it's all in the genes, and Huard possesses the ideal DNA to breed 'Starbuck' into quite a stud.

Suburban Journals of St. Louis

The other reason "Starbuck" succeeds as a movie is that it goes more for the heart than for the big laughs.

A high-concept comedy that peddles some slapstick laughs and life lessons but little insight.

One Guy's Opinion

Despite (or because of) Huard's mugging, 'Starbuck' is more likely to cause queasiness than smiles of contentment.

Sean O'Connell

It's a far-fetched premise, though one that's brought down to Earth by Scott's emotionally upbeat writing, his brisk direction, and Huard's nimble, large-hearted performance.

What begins as a cute idea grows annoyingly sentimental before it is through.

East Bay Express

Trite-sounding comic premise is lifted by a winning performance by Patrick Huard.

For a story about a man on the cusp of belated adulthood, "Starbuck" has some growing up of its own to do.

This is froth, but it's good froth.

Rather than a jolting shot of joe, this French-Canadian comedy is a soothing cup of warm cocoa.

"Starbuck" is essentially a situation comedy, but what a situation.

Never mind high concept, this is high conception.

"Starbuck" is one of those high-concept yet formulaic, sitcom-like comedies that gets by on charm and speed.

The screenplay, by director Ken Scott and Michael Petit is a true original.

Killer Movie Reviews

The pace is leisurely, the coincidences just a little too pat, but the momentum Huard brings to this befuddled human being has too much heart to let that matter

We Got This Covered

While overly contrived and often slight, Starbuck is a feel-good comedy to be rivalled and benefits immensely from a snappy, wry screenplay and charming performance from Huard.

Ian Buckwalter
Washington City Paper

Scott's take on the importance of family is an admirable one, to a point, until it moves past that to espouse an uncomfortably regressive morality.

It's silly and a bit sappy, but it works, in a crowd-pleasing way.

Like its likeable loser hero ... the movie aims for a lower rung, grabs the bar, and, without much ambition to guide it, hangs there with no desire to climb any higher.
