“”Bad Milo!” Is Disgustingly Hilarious!”
Imagine E.T., if instead of outer space, he came from inner space.
And by “inner” I mean your ass.
“Bad Milo!” is a film directed by Jacob Vaughan, and Executive Produced the Duplass Brothers (Jay and Mark). Mark Duplass acts as well, and probably is most well-known as Pete Eckhart, from “The League.”
“Bad Milo!” is the story of Duncan (Ken Marino, who also played Donny “The Seed” Sedowsky on “The League”), a milquetoast who’s grown to accept how badly everyone treats him. The problem is that his Id, his ego, isn’t quite so accepting.
His frustration, his anger manifest themselves as Milo, a horrific little monster (that’s actually pretty cute at times) that began life as a polyp somewhere on Duncan’s rectum.
Yep. Milo is an ass monster.
Milo also happens to be the size of a small child, which makes the fact that Duncan has to crap him out every time he appears quite possibly one of the most painful experiences a person could have.
What’s shocking are the caliber of actor that appears in a movie about a raging butt-monster, like Patrick Warburton, Peter Stomare (who has one of the funniest, somewhat adversarial, talking parrots in movies), and Stephen Root.
But if you go into “Bad Milo!” thinking it’s only about monsters that come from your buttocks, you would have missed a touching story of a man trying to reach out to a world that just doesn’t understand him.
Sure, it happens to be through a raging ass monster, but it’s hilarious, and if you’re willing to go with the bizarre concept, you’ll find a friend in Milo, because when he’s bad, he’s very, very good.
