Barry Munday Reviews

Jay Antani
Cinema Writer

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

Brian Orndorf

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.

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

A deeply off-putting independent comedy.

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

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.

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

A dreadfully unfunny slog through contemporary dysfunctional family indie cliché.

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.
