Tyler Labine has kept us laughing out loud throughout his career, both on the small screen with television shows like Reaper and in theaters with movies like Tucker & Dale Vs Evil. Now, he gets one of his biggest roles to date in writer/director Rob Pearlstein’s Someone Marry Barry.
In the film, Labine plays the title character, an obnoxious and politically incorrect man who seriously lacks a filter between mind and mouth. As much as his friends (including Damon Wayans, Jr., Hayes MacArthur and Thomas Middleditch) care about him, they have long since grown tired of his disgusting antics and decide to find him a wife so that she can deal with him instead. However, Barry ends up finding the love of his life on his own in Melanie Miller (Lucy Punch), a woman every bit his match.
Recently, we had the chance to sit down with Labine for »

Sometimes, two great performers are all you need to make a movie engaging, and in the romantic comedy "Someone Marry Barry" that's the case with talented comic actors Tyler Labine and Lucy Punch. And just in time for Valentine's Day, we have a clip that highlights the start of a raunchy relationship. In the film, Labine plays the titular Barry, whose boundary-free antics has been making life a living hell for his three best friends, so they come up with a solution: set him up with a girl who will tolerate his rude, obnoxious behaviour. But they get more than they bargained for when Barry starts seeing Melanie, who is equally unguarded with her thoughts, emotions and bodily emissions. And in this clip, we see how famously the pair get one as they say goodbye at the end of their first date, with a conversation that covers such topics as masturbation and yeast infections. »

To be fair, the sorta-raunchy rom-com "Someone Marry Barry" is shamelessly and unapologetically up front about how much it owes and rips off from the Judd Apatow oeuvre. And we're not just talking about the four-bros-with-women-and-life-problems premise. Whether it's nodding to the speed dating sequence from "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," or even the detail that the titular character lives off money he earned after falling into an open manhole (not unlike Seth Rogen's Ben from "Knocked Up" who received a settlement after his foot was run over by a mail truck), it's clear writer/director Rob Pearlstein—Oscar nominated for his 2004 short "Our Time Is Up"—has spent some time watching a very selective batch of movies. And as we saw last month with "That Awkward Moment," if you don't understand what makes Apatow's films work, the results can disastrous. And while "Someone Marry Barry" is missing some key ingredients, »
