Just this morning I was watching the trailer for Chris D’Arienzo’s comedy Barry Munday on the YouTube, and it had me wondering if I should share it with you as part of our SXSW preview today. It features Patrick Wilson in probably his most ambitious comedic role, starring alongside the always funny Judy Greer and a cast of great supporting characters. Then an email came in with not only the trailer, but a gallery of images and an official synopsis from the fine folks handling the film’s publicity. It was destiny, leaving me no choice but to share it with all of you. The film’s premise is simple: a man named Barry Munday (Wilson) loses his testicles and meets a former lover (Greer) who is now pregnant with his child. It changes his life. More in the synopsis, trailer and gallery below.
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.
