  • Summary: Duncan's life is a real pain in the ass. Tormented by a manipulative, crooked boss, a nagging mother, a deadbeat new age dad, and a sweet, yet pressuring, wife, his mounting stress starts to trigger an insufferable gastrointestinal reaction. Out of ideas and at the end of his rope, Duncan seeks the help of a hypnotherapist, who helps him discover the root of his unusual stomach pain: a pintsized demon living in his intestine that, triggered by excessive anxiety, forces its way out and slaughters the people who have angered him. Out of fear that his intestinal gremlin may target its wrath on the wrong person, Duncan attempts to befriend it, naming it Milo and indulging it to keep its seemingly insatiable appetite at bay.

    Bad Milo! is sick—but it’s the right kind of sick.

    Call it odious, call it repugnant, call it downright nasty – just don't call it dumb.

    Rarely goes so far over the top that it loses you completely. It is, to put it mildly, not subtle. But if you watch it expecting to see a dumb idea executed with appreciable skill, you'll have a blast.

    Bad Milo! gets nasty laughs out of putting its overmatched hero through a gauntlet of comic humiliations, but it works just as well as a dark allegory about the way we handle our demons.

    Props to Bad Milo for its fearlessly pulp approach in exploring well-worn characters and their ho-hum dilemmas, but you know you’ve got a dull story on your hands when not even a butt monster can jazz it up enough.

    What could have been a very funny short film about self-control and befriending your id instead becomes a rambling commentary on father-son dysfunction and the limits of proctology.

    I originaly thought this film was going to be awful. The only thing that made me watch it was that I am a huge fan of Gillian Jacobs from Community. Surprisingly, I really did like it. The film doesn't take its self to seriously and the acting and writing is great. Expand

    I bought this on VOD from Amazon, and it was worth it. This movie is so funny, and Ken Marino is really good in this. It is a very entertaining movie, and you need to watch it now. Expand

    Hilarious concept, and Ken Marino is the only person I can imagine playing this part. He's seriously one of the most underrated comedic actors out there. Some of the execution is lacking, but the scenes in which Milo needs to "crawl home", and Marino's reaction to it, are priceless. It's experimental absurdist humor, it doesn't overstay it's welcome, and, as such, I'd recommend it. Expand

    Bad Milo! is just that BAD! The movie is poorly executed, badly directed, its suppose to be funny. But I didn't laugh. It was also a bore for me. Avoid this movie! Expand
