What you likely already know is that later this year, Vince Vaughn will star in "Delivery Man," his latest mix of comedy of drama that co-stars Chris Pratt, Cobie Smulders and more. What you might not know is that the movie is a remake, based on the 2011 smash hit Quebecois film "Starbuck." And if you want to see what Vaughn is up against, we've got a treat for you today.

But first, let's rewind. The original film starred Patrick Huard in the Vaughn role, as a 42 year old with nothing in way of the responsibility who discovers that a sperm bank screw-up has made him the father of 533 children. He makes the decision to track down the children he's fathered and the result is a movie that packed 'em in theaters up north, with critics also embracing the crowd pleasing hit. Ken Scott directed "Starbuck"—and the remake as well—and if you want to check it out where it all started we've got some copies on DVD.

How do you win? Email us your name, address and tell us the name of your favorite comedy about parenthood. Good luck!

"Starbuck" is on DVD today. And down below, you can watch an exclusive clip of star Patrick Huard talking about his role in the film. Update: Contest closed, winners will be contacted via email.
