Critic Reviews for The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (15)

The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green can't be accused of false advertising. This adaptation of the underground comic strip is mostly unfabulous.

George Bamber's film is bouncy and agreeable but has a certain flatness to it; never making the case for its existence as a movie rather than a comic strip.

Tiresome romantic comedy that reinforces every imaginable gay stereotype.

Top Critic

There's no visual life to it, the humor is lazy and broad, and the players are as two-dimensional as their cartoon origins suggest.

This feels like a school play that someone has dragged to film school and turned into a final project.

Audience Reviews for The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green

Started off great and than unfortunately drifted into slapstick comedy with few truly good moments. I was entertained throughout most of it, therefore I reluctantly give it 3 stars. BUT don't expect much: the plot is predictable, the acting mediocre at best, the comedy is mostly slapstick - entertainment, not great cinema.

This film was pretty fast paced, funny, and still managed to be warm hearted. The protagonist was played by Daniel Letterle, a very cute, talented young actor. It was great to see Meredith Baxter, Richard Riehle, and Joel Brooks do a fun, light hearted comedy. The real star, in my mind, was the super cute Dean Shelton as Punch, the fast talking "popular" smartass. It's worth the rental, and it made me smile.

Jim Chatman

I had to watch this movie in x2 speed, or I'd never get through it. I was telling myself "eww" throughout the whole movie, and I also thought it was very boring. The ending was kind of cute, but not really...
