Consensus: Testosterone is a poorly executed attempt at film noir that follows good-looking yet bland characters through an ultimately aimless plot.

Scott Tobias
AV Club

Moreton shows plenty of ambition in his second feature, but somewhere in the space between page and screen, he lost the thread.

Tom Long
Detroit News

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.

Don Willmott

incredibly plot-heavy yet feels light as a feather

Moira MacDonald
Seattle Times

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.

John Monaghan
Detroit Free Press

[Relies] on a creaky plot and gaping lapses in plausibility.

Unfortunately, Testosterone isn't as provocative as its premise or its title.

The movie's primary interest seems to be in following several good-looking men wherever they care to meander.

Wesley Morris
Boston Globe

A tonal car wreck -- the equivalent of Chuck Norris crashing though the pages of an Isabel Allende novel.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)

The tone-challenged movie is meant to be a dark comedy, but there are long stretches without laughs.

David Sutcliffe gives a good performance and Braga is wonderfully ice cold but the picture drags and makes little sense.
