Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The acting style is so blase as to make the material seem boring -- except perhaps for Wingard's emotionally twisted closing chapter."
‑ Peter Debruge, Variety
"There are are flashes of sexual insight amid the movie's lovely, deceptively complex compositions and smartly deployed songs, but overall Autoerotic is as vaporous and vaguely dissatisfying as a negotiated quickie before work."
‑ Mark Holcomb, Village Voice
"If only (Swanberg) explored his characters as much as his characters explore themselves."
‑ Mark Keizer, Boxoffice Magazine
"Yes, there can be too much of a good thing, even sex."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"the cinematic equivalent to farting during sex"
‑ Blake French, Filmcritic.com
"The film ultimately promises controversial content too literally, and through tediously normative form."
‑ Diego Costa, Slant Magazine
"Its tone is quietly comical, with each chapter treated as an extended joke, or as an R-rated O. Henry story angling toward a neat concluding twist."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"Not dynamically acted, but nonetheless an engaging, streamlined, dryly comedic thematic exercise, further held together and unified by a lurking, almost voyeuristic visual scheme."
‑ Brent Simon, Shockya.com
