The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green

Critics Consensus

Ethan Green makes for an annoying protagonist, the jokes aren't funny, and everyone is as flat as the paper the comic is printed on.

Movie Info

After years of relying on the "it's not you, it's me" excuse, a gay man in his late twenties begins to realize that he might really be the one to blame for his failed relationships in this broad comedy. Based on a serialized comic strip of the same name, The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green stars Daniel Letterle as the title character, a flighty serial monogamist for whom no boyfriend is quite "the one." When he dumps his current near-perfect squeeze, the recently out baseball player Kyle (Diego Serrano), his friends begin to worry -- even more so when he takes up with a rebound boyfriend, the moronic party boy Punch (Dean Shelton). But when one of Ethan's exes, Leo (David Monahan), announces his plans for a commitment ceremony, Ethan has to face his unrequited feelings and figure out what he really wants. Family Ties matriarch Meredith Baxter co-stars as Ethan's mince-no-words wedding-planner mom.

Critic Reviews for The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (14)

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.

Aug 10, 2006 | Full Review…

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.

Aug 4, 2006 | Rating: 2/4

Tiresome romantic comedy that reinforces every imaginable gay stereotype.

Jul 28, 2006 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

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

Jul 21, 2006 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

In his directing debut, David Vernon, formerly a first assistant and second assistant director, opts for the look of a cable TV pilot.

Jul 14, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The film's tone veers from misjudged sincerity to shrill sketch comedy of the broadest stripe.

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.
