Everyone hates David (Patrick Huard), and with good reason: The shiftless, selfish 42-year-old butcher is such a screw-up that when he impregnates his girlfriend Valérie (Julie LeBreton), she severs ties so their child won't have to deal with the endless disappointment of knowing him. Great news - David agrees he's not ready to be a dad. Except he already is, thanks to a past gig as a frequent sperm donor. He's fathered 533 children, 142 of whom have filed suit to meet "Starbuck," the champion self-pleasurer of 1988.

When my husband, Bill, and I were thinking about another trip to Europe in our golden years, we decided I could use some help with Bill's wheelchair and driving in Europe. David, a UCLA student, worked for us part-time. He helped Bill, drove him to the office and fixed everything. He was strong, quick, resourceful and best of all, sunny. So we asked if he'd like to share our trip and give us a hand in Europe. He did a thumbs up, flashed a smile and suddenly the three of us were flying to France.

When Erik Jansson was barely into his teens he used to sneak into the garage and lift his brother David's weights. "Nobody caught him and he kept covered up," David remembered with a chuckle. "Then one day about a year later he uncovered. I said, 'Whoa, this guy's getting big.' " At 13, that was the start of Jansson's body building career, which is still in its infancy but has opened to rave reviews.
