Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film is so proud of its alleged daring that it even begins with a dictionary definition of the word 'deviant.' 'Sitcom' would have been more like it."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"A tedious, toilet-talking, try-sexual tease."
‑ Joe Brown, Washington Post
"The movie often plays more like a wisecracking sitcom -- Saved by the Bell with four-letter words -- than a wise romantic roundelay."
‑ Stephen Farber, Movieline
"The guy's parts were poorly written, especially the handsome, dumb jock type character (Stephen Baldwin)."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"Threesome, by falling into the common trap of mistaking pretentiousness for substance, loses its way early on."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"The three become a giggly and rather insufferable bunch."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"What could have been a lively and fairly entertaining look at a slightly different kind of romantic triangle instead becomes a film that tries far too hard to be about something."
‑ Scott Renshaw, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"A well-constructed, hilarious, touching, and thoroughly sexy Bizarre Love Triangle."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"Not a great movie, but in its own way it is an effective one, and more than most other movies it is accurate and honest about the sexuality of young people."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Mildly charming and occasionally sexy but shallow and silly menage at trois tale set at UCLA dormitory."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"A minor exploitation flick gussied up as an important piece of commentary on sexual politics."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
