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>

Goofs

When Barry and Ginger are having sex, Barry points out a smiley face tattoo that Ginger has on her left leg, which Ginger said she got in college. But in a previous scene, before Ginger was to give birth, there is a clear shot of her left leg and no sign of any tattoo. See more »

Every man's worst nightmare: He wakes up without his "loved ones" ---er, his b4lls.
8 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

Womanizer becomes tamed when he loses his balls (literally, folks) and learns he is to be a father from a one-night-stand he'd forgotten about.

The movie starts out showing what Barry Munday was like before he became Barry "No Balls" Munday. He was a slacker who goofed off at work and made passes at the women who worked there. And when not at work, he continued this behavior on his own time. Eventually, his tom cat ways catch up to him (early in the movie) when his nuts are crushed by a trumpet wielded by an angry father in a movie theater. After mourning his balls for a short period, he later learns he is to be a father from a brief encounter earlier. He becomes a changed man; responsible, sensitive, kind; a loving, attentive father-to-be.

This movie is "unspoilable". I am ABSOLUTELY confident of this since it's already spoiled by an unfunny script. I guarantee you that if you look out your window for an hour and a half, or so, you will see something as interesting if not more so FREE OF CHARGE. Listed as a comedy, it's more something that "intends to be" or "tries to be" because it's NOT funny. The most it will do for you is possibly make you crack a smile in one or two places; that's it. I had no problem with the cast. They are a likable enough bunch. It's the story --as it usually is when a movie fails to deliver-- that sucks. Love, Boloxxxi.
