Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"D'Arienzo's screenplay and direction goes for a cross between naturalism and absurdity, but it's largely a queasy, oil-and-water blend."
‑ Jay Antani, Cinema Writer
"It trades schmaltz for honesty and receives heaps of laughs as its reward."
‑ Neil Miller, Film School Rejects
"With characters this grating, one wonders how much better Barry Munday might have been had all these good performers just acted normal"
‑ Jason McKiernan,
"You watch it, you shrug, you go about your day."
‑ Dustin Putman,
"This sluggishly paced quirkfest is awfully sophomoric for a film all about giving up the facile thrills of youth for the responsibilities of adulthood."
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
"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."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"[Transcends] a familiar plot with sharp dialogue and awkward grace."
‑ Peter Martin, Cinematical
"Just what we need, another self-consciously quirky indie comedy as low on laughs as it is on inspiration."
‑ Geoff Berkshire,
"Manages to be both funny and touching when it doesn't seem capable of either."
‑ Jason Zingale,
"A dreadfully unfunny slog through contemporary dysfunctional family indie clichť."
‑ Karina Longworth, L.A. Weekly
"Barry remains immature in serious situations like a doctors office. He does follow a respectable character arc, never sacrificing humor to learn his lessons."
‑ Fred Topel, Can Magazine
"A deeply off-putting independent comedy."
‑ Scott Tobias,
"Barry Munday is strange and offbeat, and even a little honest and heartfelt."
‑ JimmyO, iamROGUE
