Pace is snappy, soundtrack full of good alt-rock cuts.

FILMINK (Australia)

There's an occasional brief, fierce laugh born out of the absurdity of the situations. At other points, the women provide genuine insight into relationships. Thank god for their realism and sanity. Still, this feels like a short bloated into a feature.

Daily Telegraph (UK)

It's a display of gross bad faith both as documentarist and lover, and its subject probably deserves never to get laid again.

The Age (Australia)

A sporadically entertaining portrayal of male humiliation and self-abnegation.

It's not as funny as the title suggests, but there's something endearing about this rough video diary in which filmmaker Chris Waitt takes a fly-on-the-wall approach to his past failures as a boyfriend.

It's to Waitt's credit that there are genuine moments of poignancy in the film as well as laughs and sheer astonishment.

It's very funny. It's slightly pathetic. It's comforting in a hey-nobody's-human kind of way.

Sexual Failures is edited well, the score is great and while certain scenes feel a bit staged, Waitt is immediately likable and a ball to watch on the big screen.

You have to give props to a man who is willing to bear all in front of a camera. I am unsure as to whether certain parts of the film were staged or not, but for… More

The film does feel like a staged documentary, however it is craftfully edited and packs a great score. There are funny moments that are at contrast with the… More

At times frustrating and hard to watch, but always keeps your interest.
