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 Different Kind of Comedy
10 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

Barry Munday (Patrick Wilson) wakes up after being attacked to realize that he's missing his family jewels. To make matters worse, he learns he's facing a paternity lawsuit filed by a woman he can't remember having sex with.

First of all, what is up with the homely Judy Greer? You get Greer for your film, and then you make her look dumpy? Big mistake! And you have Chloe Sevigny but do not make her the lead actress? Bigger mistake! (One scene totally makes up for this grievous error, however.)

And then we have additional casting choices that are excellent, such as Malcolm McDowell and the criminally-underutilized Billy Dee Williams. A lot of good comedy relies on good casting... actors who know how to deliver a line, improvise, and ad lib if necessary. I think they nailed it here... the real hero of this film is the casting director.
