Consensus: Observant and insightful, this indie comedy takes a different tack on the "bromance" but still makes a point without sermonizing.

What finally lifts 'Humpday' above macho junk like 'The Hangover' is its all-inclusive warmth: for all their adolescent self-delusion, Shelton truly loves these characters. And after 90 minutes, so will you.

It's a comedy that grows beyond any Apatovian expectations and expertly avoids being an ode to 'Gay panic' a'la I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry.

Getting to the showdown is a fine and funny journey.

Humpday succeeds by grounding its risqué premise in the awkwardness and humor of real people trying their damnedest to communicate. A lot.

So what is Humpday really about? If anything, the power of women

Worthy if minor indie love-in which runs out of steam when you realise where its going and I never really bought the contrived set up.
