I Rented This Because of Michael Maronna
I never saw this in theaters. I just waited for it to come out on's kind of a good thing I did. I rented it just to see Michael Maronna, whom I haven't seen in anything besides commercials since Nickelodeon's The Adventures of Pete & Pete went off the air. I must say....he is the best part of this movie. Some of the other parts are funny, some are just too gross or too weird. And that's sayin something...I rarely think things are TOO weird. The guy who played Ethan was pretty good playing an obsessed dork, he was creepy and the character was unique enough to even seem believable. Or at least not too laughable. But Michael Maronna just completely stole the show! His facial expressions are classic, and the way he plays this role is just hilarious all the time...The sideburns are interesting. ^_^ I'm GLAD I rented this.
