Barry Munday – ★★★★½
This is a fairly classic “coming of age” story involving an unwanted pregnancy. Like the others in this genre, it has a twist (in this case neither of the parents are teenagers, like Juno) but revealing it would give away much of the plot.
Oddly this film was finished in 2008 but has taken two years to surface. Apparently the first cuts just did not work. So it was redone a few times. I am glad that the extra time was done, since this film feels "right".
There are quite a few cringe worthy moments, especially when Barry is being his pick-up artist self. But he evolves and makes the film warm-hearted.
If you end up seeing this film, I think you'll enjoy it. It won't challenge you but it will entertain.
