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 quite boring romantic comedy
18 November 2011 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

With the film The Accidental Husband, I thought I had found the worst possible premise for a romantic comedy (a hacker legally marries two people who hate each other); then, I saw The Switch in order to prove that it was possible to fall even lower (a man exchanges his sperm with...ah, forget about it). And more recently, I watched the film Barry Munday in order to remind us that there is simply no limit for the presence of bad ideas in Hollywood. Needless to say, I found Barry Munday very boring and a waste of time.

There was only one reason why I decided to watch Barry Munday: the great Judy Greer. I have been a fan of this actress' for a long time (since I saw her in the film Jawbreaker), and I have been waiting for years to see her huge talent recognized. Unfortunately, she seems typecast in supporting roles of "best friend" or "talkative secretary", even though she still manages to bring solid works in those minor roles. Her performance in Barry Munday is also competent, and it is what saves this film from reaching deplorable levels.

For the rest, Barry Munday is a weak, tedious and unfunny romantic comedy, and I cannot recommend it, despite Greer's performance.
