Barry Munday, a suburban wanna-be ladies man, wakes up in the hospital after being attacked in a movie theater, only to realize that he is missing one of his most prized possessions... his testicles. To make matters worse, Barry learns he's facing a paternity lawsuit filed by a woman he can't remember having sex with. With this being Barry's last chance to ever be a father, Barry reaches out and embraces the journey of parenthood and the onslaught of bumps that face him along the way. Filled

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.
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.
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.
With characters this grating, one wonders how much better Barry Munday might have been had all these good performers just acted normal
This sluggishly paced quirkfest is awfully sophomoric for a film all about giving up the facile thrills of youth for the responsibilities of adulthood.
Just what we need, another self-consciously quirky indie comedy as low on laughs as it is on inspiration.
Barry Munday is strange and offbeat, and even a little honest and heartfelt.
