Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Moreton shows plenty of ambition in his second feature, but somewhere in the space between page and screen, he lost the thread."
‑ Scott Tobias, AV Club
"A pointless, wandering tale of obsession that seems to have little purpose beyond showing that gay characters can be in a messed-up movie too."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"incredibly plot-heavy yet feels light as a feather"
‑ Don Willmott, Filmcritic.com
"Broken hearts and testosterone don't mix well with machetes (I think I would have preferred watching the 10 months of romance that they skipped over in the beginning)."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone, TheMovieChicks.com
"The male characters are bland, a fatal flaw for a gay movie, while the women - Celina Font, Sonia Braga and Jennifer Coolidge - steal the show."
‑ Sean Means, Salt Lake Tribune
"Filled with pretty faces and empty logic, David Moreton's noir-wannabe Testosterone flounders about, doing everything but flutter its eyelashes in an attempt to distract us from its lack of substance."
‑ Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
"[Relies] on a creaky plot and gaping lapses in plausibility."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"Unfortunately, Testosterone isn't as provocative as its premise or its title."
‑ Tom Meek, Boston Phoenix
"The film's major objective appears to be showing cute men doing suggestive things. But if that's your thing, why not just look at pictures? Why ruin it with a story?"
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
"If you want to see a movie with some real chops about gays in Argentina, rent Wong Kar Wai's still-hip, still-smoldering Happy Together from 1997, and happier you will be."
‑ Laura Kelly, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"The movie's primary interest seems to be in following several good-looking men wherever they care to meander."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"A tonal car wreck -- the equivalent of Chuck Norris crashing though the pages of an Isabel Allende novel."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"The tone-challenged movie is meant to be a dark comedy, but there are long stretches without laughs."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"Woefully shallow."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"It's evident that Dean is capable of getting many other good-looking boyfriends if he so desires -- why get so worked up over one who's a jackass?"
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
