Storyline

Barry: he slacks off at work, savors one-nights stands, and is getting older (young people call him "sir"). Then, he loses his testicles in an assault and gets a letter saying he's to become a father. He can't remember the woman and asks if she'll meet with him: she's Ginger, a solitary waspish woman about his age. He acknowledges paternity and wants to be a part of the pregnancy and parenthood. With reluctance and lots of put-downs, Ginger introduces him to her family, including the favored younger sister, and allows him to come with her to her doctor's. With his own father issues, a canny boss, brittle Ginger, and her vampy sister, can Barry hang in there? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A possibly funny premise ruined by inconsistencies, boring comedy, and rude characters
15 May 2011 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Barry Munday (Patrick Wilson) is a ladies man. At first the movie is trying to tell us that he just thinks of himself as one, but they did show us him getting his way with a lot of women. I guess I'm supposed to think that since it's just a comedy, there's no point to being consistent.

Barry wakes up in the hospital and discovers he's missing his testicles. That's an original set-up for what could be a fairly funny comedy, but 10 minutes in and that premise is mostly forgotten. We then get a boring comedy about Barry trying to get to know the mother of his unborn child. The two stories are only related by the fact that if he ever wants to be a father, now is his last chance.

There are some fairly funny lines, but the situations are not clever and the characters are not endearing. There is nothing to connect us to Barry and the rest are just rude, unrealistic characters. Notice how I never called the far-fetched premise unrealistic but I called the characters unrealistic? Yeah, that's how bad they are. We were also told the impregnation occurred on February 11th and the expected due date is December 10th. Really, a 10-month gestation period? I actually think that they just didn't want me to do the math. Well, I'll make it easy, don't watch "Barry Munday".
