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 perfect film
12 December 2010 | by screamingfootSee all my reviews

Yes, I said it. Perfect. No, it's not a Hollywood blockbuster and it's not populated with A-list actors, but it's pitch perfect and has the best possible balance of cast and story brought to life with a subtle hand.

Judy Greer is a joy to watch on screen and I looked forward to every moment of her in this film.

If you don't need action and fireworks and gun-play and are a fan of great writing, acting, and great filmmaking, this is for you. I hope it makes it into a theater near me because I'm definitely seeing it and will be dragging some friends with me because I know they'll appreciate it.
