The type of humor presented in this trailer might not be for you, but I found it absolutely hysterical. The way it looks reminds me a lot of Office Space, and the humor might not be so far off either. It looks like it is a pretty raunchy comedy, but has just the right amount of charm that keeps it grounded. If the film is half as funny as the trailer, then we could be looking at another cult comedy classic. I just added another film to my must see list this year.
BARRY MUNDAY premieres at the SXSW Film Festival 2010. The film stars Patrick Wilson, Judy Greer, Chloe Sevigny, Jean Smart, Malcolm McDowell, Cybill Shepherd & Billy Dee Williams. It is written & directed by Chris D’Arienzo and based on the book “Life is a Strange Place” by Frank Turner Hollon.
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 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 with an ensemble of unusual characters, “Barry Munday” is the surprisingly heart-warming tale of a guy who finds it took losing his manhood to be a better man.
