More Info:
  • James Mottram

    Gormican’s script is the film’s big strength; the dialogue fizzes while the set-pieces pay off handsomely.

    While it's easy to tease first-time writer-director Tom Gormican's raunchy rom-com, the trio has a shaggy chemistry, and most of the jokes hit.

    It's the Judd Apatow syndrome and there are times when the blend of romance and raunchiness threatens to curdle. In the end, however, the "love conquers all" mentality wins out.

  • Claudia Puig

    While it has the requisite amounts of comedy and romance, it's actually more of a buddy movie. Think "Sex in the City," bro-style.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Anna Smith

    It’s predictable and troubled by continuity errors, but as undemanding romantic comedies go, it’s a pleasant enough watch with a heartfelt script from debut writer-director Tom Gormican.

  • Adam Markovitz

    Sit tight through the end credits and you'll be treated to a few off-the-cuff outtakes of the guys doing things much funnier than anything in the film itself.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    It has some good actors, and some quick dialogue, which also has the feel of real-life. But the plot forces things a bit, and the direction is uncertain; just when it seems willing to take some risks, it retreats.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Kevin McFarland

    That Awkward Moment desperately wants to speak to a new generation of romantic-comedy devotees without proving it has the authority to do so. It’s not as laboriously dumb as the overloaded ensemble rom-coms of Garry Marshall ("Valentine’s Day," "New Year’s Eve") or the similarly star-studded "He’s Just Not That Into You."

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    The reversion to formula takes a pleasing comedy and drops it down a notch, but That Awkward Moment is still very easy to like.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    At the very least, the makers of That Awkward Moment should get credit for savvy casting. Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Like its characters, That Awkward Moment has commitment issues: It lacks the courage of its bad taste.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    It's nice to see a movie in love with New York City, but That Awkward Moment sets such a low bar for Jason's redemption it becomes a drag.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    It’s over familiar, a movie that plays like recycled, R-rated outtakes from “Rules of Engagement” or “How I Met Your Mother.”

  • Sheri Linden

    Even when Gormican’s material tries too hard to be wackily crude, and not hard enough to make dramatic sense, the actors suggest layers of experience that help to fill in the gaps.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Kate Erbland

    The most awkward thing about That Awkward Moment is that the majority of it just doesn’t make much sense and, as a relatively light-hearted spin on the romantic comedy genre, it absolutely should. Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    The three young stars biding time in Tom Gormican's listless rom-com are too gifted for one mediocre movie to bury.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Randy Cordova

    First-time writer-director Tom Gormican keeps the dialogue moving at a rapid pace, which doesn’t obscure the fact that most of what is said is dopey and witless.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    What makes this film particularly bedeviling is that you get the sense there is a nice guy behind this mess, one not so callous about matters of the heart. If anything, the raunch seems forced. The closer the film gets to real emotions, the more authentic it feels.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    That Awkward Moment is eminently forgettable — but worth remembering as Poots’ moment.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    In the main, it's the usual story – much more rom than com.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The compensation comes in the three lead actors, all way too good for the material dished out by writer-director Tom Gormican.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    That Awkward Moment strives to straddle the line between breezy, bromantic comedy and “Hangover”-esque guy humor. It fails miserably on both counts.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    Its obsession with male genitalia, or, more specifically, penis receptacles, is emblematic of its overall aura of male entitlement and its consideration of women as prizes to be lanced.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    The best thing about awkward moments, after all, is that they usually pass quickly. And, blessedly, just as swiftly forgotten.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    There’s probably a movie out there that can call a happy, anatomical truce between Viagra-hopped, horizontal-dick jokes and heart-on-the-sleeve love stuff, but this ain’t that.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Genevieve Koski

    First-time writer-director Tom Gormican fills his script with jabs at romantic convention, but his story doesn’t attempt to subvert those conventions in any meaningful way.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    The pic falls well short of its efforts to combine the raucous vulgarity of the “Hangover” movies with Cameron Crowe-ish depth of feeling.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    As for the dialogue, although the characters talk really fast, swear a lot, and overlap their lines, what they’re saying isn’t very funny or authentic. It’s as if David Mamet collaborated on writing an episode of “Two and a Half Men.”

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    There is something of a manufactured air to the proceedings, one that is acutely aware of the techniques and traits of other similar better film, but without the strength in writing to back it up.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    Tom Gormican, the writer and director, mostly uses overlapping dialogue in place of actual jokes, although occasionally he stretches to toilet humour.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Cath Clarke

    The actors – who seem to have been involved in a hideous industrial accident that’s left them with the superpower of repelling all comic timing – are spectacularly unfunny.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    That Awkward Moment is a rom-com for dudes that seeks to outdo the ladies by being even more insipid, formulaic and contrived than anything Katherine Heigl has ever done.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    A vile, witless sex comedy.
