  • [New – 6/26/14] | Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan
    • Excerpt: That Awkward Moment is a painful, boring, poorly-planned, clichéd, badly-written/directed/acted horror, insipid instead of insightful, something that one watches in stunned disbelief at how everyone involved apparently doesn’t know how films work.
  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: Once you strip away the raunchy guyspeak and the crass commentary, there’s some real relationship drama going on in all three guys’ lives.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: That Awkward Moment should have transpired when the producers read this script, but Efron, Teller, Jordan and Poots make it enjoyable nonetheless.
  • Susan Granger @
    • Excerpt: Bawdy, crude, immature male version of the dating experience, often substituting frenetic pace for intelligent insight on the issue of commitment.
  • Travis Hopson @ Punch Drunk Critics
  • Blake Howard @ Graffiti with Punctuation
    • Excerpt: Don’t be fooled, That Awkward Moment (retitled Are We Officially Dating for Australian audiences) takes a tired 90s feeling premise, promptly forgets it and meanders for an excruciating ninety minutes only to deliver its best material in the outtakes.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @
    • Excerpt: This is like the Mirror Universe, evil-goatee-wearing flip side of Don Jon, a pile of obnoxious, grossout junk.
  • Dan Kelly @ Danland
    • Excerpt: name checks “Jerry Maguire” at one point, but what’s actually presented is closer to “Dude, Where’s my Rohypnol?”.
  • Ben Kendrick @ Screen Rant
    • Excerpt: Formulaic and raunchy but still entertaining (at times).
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: If one can tune out all the film’s many problems, the stars of “That Awkward Moment” make it more tolerable than it has any right to be.
  • Benjamin Kramer @ The Voracious Filmgoer
  • Frank Ochieng @ Focus of New York Magazine
    • Excerpt: [Moment] is definitively lazy and limp because Gormican and his lunkhead Lotharios never truly explore the genuine peaks and valleys of young adult contemporary relationships and the spotty complications of sexual entanglements…has all the polished naughtiness of a defective vibrator.
  • R. Kurt Osenlund @ Slant Magazine
  • Jordan Richardson @ Canadian Cinephile
  • Thomas Santilli @
    • Excerpt: It becomes more than awkward when you have to spend time watching a movie that doesn’t entertain, delight, or otherwise engage you. But it becomes nearly unbearable when you find that there isn’t anybody on-screen that even deserves your attention.
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: Awful rather than awkward is the operative adjective here.
