Question: Who is the mentally handicapped guy with thick glasses who says, "I think she's very beautiful."? He only appears in one scene and doesn't seem to contribute anything else to the movie.

Answer: He's just another "member" of their video night group, and the character probably wasn't needed for the whole movie.
