Barry Munday stands out from most straight to DVD movies in that it has a terrific cast. Just keep in mind that it's a chick flick, don't expect plenty of laugh out loud moments like most comedies.

What's great about the film is that it has a cast of veteran actors. Patrick Wilson (Watchmen, Hard Candy) stars as Barry Munday, an aging womanizer whose testicles are removed after an injury. Judy Greer does a terrific job as Ginger, the pregnant who claims that Barry is the father. I've enjoyed her work before, but she makes for some great reaction shots in this film.

Wilson and Greer are supplemented by a solid cast of veteran actors. British actor Malcolm McDowell, Chloe Sevigny, Cybill Shepherd, Shea Whigham, Missi Pyle, and even Billy Dee Williams. For this being Chris D'Arienzo's first gig as a director, he did a great job shooting the film.

My only real complaint was that the film wasn't as funny as I had expected. There are only two or three laugh out loud moments, otherwise the humor is extremely light throughout the film. It's also not written as well as other chick flicks that I've enjoyed such as What Women Want, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, or Sweet Home Alabama.

I watched the movie a second time with an interesting commentary by the director, Patrick Wilson, and Judy Greer. Turns out one of the funnier scenes in the movie (Barry's support group) involves Wilson's real friends improvising their lines. Other extras include some light outtakes, bloopers, and a fake PSA for men like Barry.

Barry Munday is worth renting for the great performances by Judy Greer and Jean Smart. Just know in advance that it's a light romantic comedy, so don't expect The Hangover or I Love You Man. Give this one a rent before you decide to buy the DVD.

My movie rental is long so I don't know or remember why I choose this movie for my list. It has a rather boring promo. I fell in love with it about 10 minutes in. It is a wonderful surprise, I loved it. Everything in it is there for a reason, loving mother, bad ass family turns into a family bond. I don't know how a writer comes up with all these "just right" emotions. I haven't teared up this much during a movie since "Saving Private Ryan", but for very different reasons. If you want to feel good after 1.5 hours of viewing, let me give you my highest recommendation right here. It is emotionally deep if you know where to look.

idiot guy grows up. really nice story, very believable emotions despite the unrealistic premise. a couple of laughs, but mostly this is not a funny movie so much as an oddly tender movie. i enjoyed it.

As many of the other reviewers have said, the movie has a good cast, well-directed, who play their roles entertainingly. The thing I found odd, at first, was the 10-month gap between the February 11 coitus and the December 10 due date. Together with the brief appearances of the Asian neighbor and the greenskeeper's observation, I kept expecting a different twist to the plot and a different ending. However, the way it was written and the ending it has, the movie depicts a much deeper evolution of Barry's character than any other aspect of the script. I liked that a lot.

I happen to like Judy Greer acting right now as I love her on 'Archer' so I searched for other flix she had been in. This was hilarious and most will enjoy it because it was rather unexpected.

Patric Wilson does a fine job as Barry Munday who works in an insurance office and whose life revolves around the sexual conquest of women. His conquests lead to his losing his testicles in an attack by an angry father. Shortly thereafter he finds out that, just prior to the testicle incident, he fathered a child with a woman he doesn't even remember. He now wants to step up and do the right thing, and it changes his life and the lives of others around him.

This is a good-hearted Indy flick. Some have mentioned that it's a chick flick and I don't know that I agree. More time is spent with Barry than any of the female characters and it's mostly his transformation we witness. Though it is nice to see Judy Greer's Ginger come around, it's something that happens only in the final stage of the movie.

This is an Indy movie with a somewhat limited budget but it seems most of the money went into the cast. Jean Smart, Chloe Sevigny, Cybill Shepherd, Shea Whigham, Malcolm McDowell and others help move this puppy along. I wish they'd used a few of those dollars to punch up a couple of the sets but that's a minor quibble.

I would put this in the same zip code as, say, "Juno" or "Little Miss Sunshine" but it really isn't quite as good. Where this lacks is in the characterizations. Though the Barry and Ginger characters are written very well, there is a significant drop off after that. Cybill Shepherd and Malcolm MacDowell have surprisingly little to do. Even the Chloe Sevigny character is a bit of a mystery. What is it she's supposed to be doing here other than supplying a counterpart to to her nerdy sister? She adds little to the proceedings.

That aside, this is still a decent watch. At a crisp 95 minutes you probably won't be checking your watch. It's a decent story supported by a few very good performances. If you're looking for something off the beaten path, this is a good bet.
