Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A moderately smart movie would have pushed back against the formula. That Awkward Moment simply mistakes being obnoxious for being clever."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"Only a sociopath would behave this carelessly, and as such, That Awkward Moment makes for an interesting study in abnormal criminal behavior."
‑ Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Awkwardly changing gear between gross-out gags and romance, the script requires the men to behave so stupidly and shoddily that you will struggle to care whether or not they see the error of their ways in time."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"...the three stars manage to infuse their familiar characters with a congeniality that proves impossible to resist."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The boys' expletive R-rated banter furthers the genuineness to decent comedic effect, though often undermined by some misplaced farcical gags that hit-or-miss."
‑ Liam Maguren,
"The movie's ideas about relationships would've felt middle-of-the-road in the '80s, and its big epiphany moments (Guys can fall in love, too!) are shallow enough to make you long for the comparatively profound rom-com oeuvre of Kate Hudson."
‑ Adam Markovitz, Entertainment Weekly
"Take three horny guys, all twentysomethings, mix with a plot that was old last century, and serve to an audience so desperate toilet gags they might forgive a movie wired only with clichés."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"[That Awkard Moment] has nothing particularly special about it, but it's pleasant, it's funny, and it features young and pretty people learning how to be sensible adults."
‑ Alex Doenau, Trespass
"One dares suggest that had the film gone for a more formulaic approach - focusing on one character's plight instead of all three - it might have been tighter and stronger."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
"Heavy-hitting support players Teller and Jordan steal every scene they can from the lightweight leading man."
‑ Leigh Paatsch, Herald Sun (Australia)
"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."
‑ Randy Cordova, Arizona Republic
"Might be more aptly titled Those Awkward 94 Minutes."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"For those of you expecting another PG-13 romantic comedy, take note that 'That Awkward Moment' is rated R. This means it may or may not be a good date movie, depending upon your sweetheart's tolerance for f-bombs."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"The talents of the three leading men are wasted on a shallow, misguided story that lets them talk a lot about boners and pooping but gives them no opportunity to be funny or charming."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"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"
‑ Blake Howard, 2UE That Movie Show
