Total Film

By James Mottram
Gormican’s script is the film’s big strength; the dialogue fizzes while the set-pieces pay off handsomely.

It's the Judd Apatow syndrome and there are times when the blend of romance and raunchiness threatens to curdle. In the end, however, the...

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
While it has the requisite amounts of comedy and romance, it's actually more of a buddy movie. Think "Sex in the City," bro-style.

It’s predictable and troubled by continuity errors, but as undemanding romantic comedies go, it’s a pleasant enough watch with a heartfelt...

Like its characters, That Awkward Moment has commitment issues: It lacks the courage of its bad taste.

Chicago Tribune

By Michael Phillips
It's nice to see a movie in love with New York City, but That Awkward Moment sets such a low bar for Jason's redemption it becomes a drag.

Even when Gormican’s material tries too hard to be wackily crude, and not hard enough to make dramatic sense, the actors suggest layers of...

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
The reversion to formula takes a pleasing comedy and drops it down a notch, but That Awkward Moment is still very easy to like.

Variety

By Scott Foundas
The pic falls well short of its efforts to combine the raucous vulgarity of the “Hangover” movies with Cameron Crowe-ish depth of feeling.

Awkward was sitting through that entire movie

By itsjustbriz443
This film rates # 3 worst in the last yr and in my top 10 for all time. I stopped counting how many times the F bomb was dropped at 40. At one point I got up and left for 10 minutes and found the...

Average Rom Com

By sirbosk1
This is just another romantic comedy. The couples are all very good looking and there are some nude shots of the men but strangely, not the women? Lots of adult language that was unnecessary but all...

My wife wanted to see this

By robertdemarcomd
I went with a bad attitude, I must admit. I was expecting to hate it. I found myself quite entertained. The interactions between the male leads were funny and so typically male that you had to...

That Awkward Moment

By wgm
Loved it from start to finish, very funny and wonderfully romantic. The three lead guys were perfectly casted. I love Zac Efron, and Miles Teller is a comfortable actor. Loved the different plots and...

Could've been better

By morgantwhitehead703
Disappointing :( considering the cast I was expecting more. There were a few laugh out loud moments but not enough to get thru the straight up boring and dragged out scenes....

Great Romantic Movie!

By west2892
This was a fun movie to see. All of the actors were handsome. All of the actresses were beautiful! There were a lot of really funny jokes. Very realistic, as to what really goes on in life. Some...

Funny movie :)

Went to see this last night with my fiancé, we both loved it! It was funny and actually pretty relatable to real life in a lot of ways. We'll be buying it on DVD when it comes out for sure! (If it...

wonderful girl flick

By marylavan
My granddaughter took me and I really enjoyed it. Of course I really LOVE NYC , and the fellows were clean-cut descent guys, very nice storyline with plenty of laughs, many smiles! A feel good movie....

Fun movie for males and females

By Ribread1
My husband was not wanting to go to the movie at all cause he was thinking it was a chick flick 100% but I told him it would be funny too...and all he could say when it was done was how much he...

Couldv'e been "Must Go"

By bwillis50
Rom-coms are what they are. Most are formulaic but it's the chemistry and interaction of the characters that make or break a rom-com. This was a smart script with a good cast but for me it was ruined...
