Barney's Version: A Surefire Hit!

There are some actors ya just trust. Paul Giamatti is one of them, for us at least! Paul has chosen one gem after another. He's played memorable, waaaay out-there characters (Limbo in Planet of the Apes), voiced animated characters (Tim the gate guard in Robots) and even Santa in Fred Claus! He's just your average 'dude-next-door' type who can act the shit out of any role.

The picaresque and touching story of the politically incorrect, fully lived life of the impulsive, irascible and fearlessly blunt Barney Panofsky. IMDB

A man leads a reckless life highlighted by three marriages, two children and being a "person of interest" in the mysterious disappearance of his bosom buddy. themovieinsider

Hmmm... A little vague, but after watching the trailer we see that it's one of those stories that isn't entirely action-packed. It's more of a character story with what we're sure will be a killer performance from good 'ol Paul. Watch it yourself and tell us what you think!
