D'Arienzo's love of trite indie-movie signposts of comic quirkiness -- deadpan delivery, overly formal camerawork, characters delivering dialogue into the camera, stunt casting -- is ultimately regrettable.

This sluggishly paced quirkfest is awfully sophomoric for a film all about giving up the facile thrills of youth for the responsibilities of adulthood.

A dreadfully unfunny slog through contemporary dysfunctional family indie clichť.

D'Arienzo's screenplay and direction goes for a cross between naturalism and absurdity, but it's largely a queasy, oil-and-water blend.

An oddball feature lacking a fine point to tie it all together, but it spotlights a cast game to try something new for a change, committing to the aimlessness with endearing slack-jawed concentration.

December 29, 2010 Full Review Source:

Barry remains immature in serious situations like a doctors office. He does follow a respectable character arc, never sacrificing humor to learn his lessons.

It trades schmaltz for honesty and receives heaps of laughs as its reward.

[Transcends] a familiar plot with sharp dialogue and awkward grace.

October 4, 2010 Full Review Source: Cinematical

A deeply off-putting independent comedy.

October 2, 2010 Full Review Source:

With characters this grating, one wonders how much better Barry Munday might have been had all these good performers just acted normal

October 1, 2010 Full Review Source:

Just what we need, another self-consciously quirky indie comedy as low on laughs as it is on inspiration.

September 30, 2010 Full Review Source:

Barry Munday is strange and offbeat, and even a little honest and heartfelt.

You watch it, you shrug, you go about your day.

Manages to be both funny and touching when it doesn't seem capable of either.

Audience Reviews for Barry Munday

Barry Munday: I don't think it's fair to use my biological disadvantages against me.†

"It's What's Missing That Makes Them Complete"

I must admit from the beginning that I have a soft spot for Indie Comedies like Barry Munday. I often find myself liking movies, like Barry Munday, that others find no value in. So I did like Barry Munday, but that should not be taken as a recommendation. I would never recommend movies like this to people, because honestly, most people won't like it. I understand that Independent Comedies appeal to a very small base of people. One of which is me.†

Barry Munday is the name of our lead character. At the beginning of the movie, we are introduced to Barry, as he lays in a hospital bed. His narration tells us that he has lost his testicles. In the following scenes(which go back before the accident), we are shown that Barry is a womanizer, that will do anything for sex. After he gets out of the hospital, he gets a letter from a woman's attorney notifying him that he has impregnated said woman, and he doesn't remember her. That's the setup to the movie, and yes, it is as odd as it sounds. I can honestly say this is the first movie I have seen where the lead character has lost his nuts. Surprisingly, writer-director Chris D'Arienzo doesn't hammer the no nuts comedy to death, which was something I sort of expected. His script actually ended up being a lot smarter than I could have ever expected.

I also really liked the cast, which was led by Patrick Wilson and Judy Greer. Wilson gives a good performance as Barry and Greer is hilarious as Ginger. Other notables in the cast are the legendary Malcolm McDowell, the beautiful ChloŽ Sevigny, and Billy Dee Williams. None of the three have big roles, as the movie is really left in the hands of Wilson and Greer, but when they are on screen they really add to the film.†

So, Barry Munday was a film I really enjoyed from start to finish. I found the movie to be funny and just smart enough to make it better than the everyday comedy. The indie feel that I love so much made for an even getter experience. I can't say it is a great film or an important one or, for that matter, even one you should watch. What I can say, is that I enjoyed Barry Munday for what it was. If you find yourself liking those Independent Comedies that no one has seen; give this a shot. If you don't find yourself liking movies like that; stick with movies like The Hangover.

A very sweet little indie-comedy. When I read the description, I figured that this would be a stupid comedy. I dont like stupid comedies. This is a sweet story about fatherhood, and how it makes some men take responsibility for their lives. It's also a love story without being sappy. Things don't have to happen perfectly to be happy.

Crass and crude this so called comedy wastes a good cast on a vulgar, poorly written script. Improves towards the end but by then it's too late.

Truly one of Patrick Wilson's shining moments; a comedic masterpiece on his part. It's almost hard saying anything bad about this really, the comedy and story are just so well done. While some of the characters could have been done over the top, they're not, they exist in a very real world. The lifestyle and attitude of Barry Munday is something I won't forget any time soon.
