The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green
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… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"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."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Lead characters who are completely unlikable fly right in the face of what most filmmakers think the audience wants. But I'll take that any day over a blandly nice character."
‑ Dave White,
"With its unpleasant characters, inconsistent script and awkward acting, what's not to hate?"
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"'I'm 19, but I'm petulant' somehow sums it up."
‑ David Elliott, San Diego Union-Tribune
"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."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"This feels like a school play that someone has dragged to film school and turned into a final project."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"There's just not enough real heart to go along with the cutesiness."
‑ Marrit Ingman, Austin Chronicle
"The title does its own summing up: mostly, it's unfab."
‑ Laura Kelly, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"Remarkably true to its source: It's none too deep and a tad cartoonish, but also fast-paced, filled with quotable one-liners and often very funny."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Tiresome romantic comedy that reinforces every imaginable gay stereotype."
‑ Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"In his directing debut, David Vernon, formerly a first assistant and second assistant director, opts for the look of a cable TV pilot."
‑ Bill Stamets, Chicago Sun-Times
"The drawings of Eric Orner's comic strip on which the movie is based are more animated than the actors who fail to give any dimension to their characters."
‑ Bill White, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"No, he doesn't have anything terribly important, or even original to say, but he's funny, flighty and adorable, sort of like a gay Holly Golightly."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"This bright, fast-paced adaptation of Eric Orner's syndicated gay comic strip may not break any new cinematic ground, but its sharp, zingy wit and underlying sweetness deftly compensate for the occasional awkward patch or glaring narrative contrivance."
‑ Timothy Knight,
