AltAss Ratings (On a scale of 1 to 5 asses)


A great idea for a comedy even if the premise proves to be funnier than the actual film.

Writing / Production:                 

"Barry Munday" does not cash in as much as it should on its comic potential although the film does offer some laughs in spots.  The film does manage to remain relatively interesting throughout and has a lot of heart to its credit.


Judy Greer was absolutely perfect in her role as the unconventional female lead but I was not completely sold on Patrick Wilson as the title character even though he was not completely horrific.  The film is helped greatly by an experienced and talented assortment of supporting characters who add quite a bit of entertainment value.


Usually a comedy with this kind of storyline is over the top and wears itself out trying to crack the audience up at every turn but "Barry Munday" shakes things up by bringing alot more substance (maybe just a little too much).


The worst thing about this movie is that you will not laugh nearly as much as you would expect and the best thing is that you still may find value in the film in spite of that fact.  The problem that "Barry Munday" is bound to run into is that the audience that will appreciate the film most is not likely to be the one that will view it.
