[Starbuck] would be more likable if it were less ingratiating. It didn't have to be so quick to excuse the hero's general, genial incompetence just because he's so doggone lovable and has such studly sperm.
Director Ken Scott stresses the movie's dude-centric outlook, playing up the anxieties of impending fatherhood, and neglects any sort of maternal perspective, which dumbs down an already moronic premise.
