That Awkward Moment Reviews

Jason Best
Movie Talk

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.

Trespass

[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.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

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.

Reel Film Reviews

...the three stars manage to infuse their familiar characters with a congeniality that proves impossible to resist.

February 18, 2014

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.

Eric D. Snider

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.

Flicks.co.nz

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.

Herald Sun (Australia)

Heavy-hitting support players Teller and Jordan steal every scene they can from the lightweight leading man.

2UE That Movie Show

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

FILMINK (Australia)

A slick, smug film about three guys, who we slowly, slowly watch get their act together.

Shared Darkness

An awkward mash-up [that] in the end will represent nothing more than a momentary, wholly understandable blip on the respective filmographies of its talented young cast.

Predicable film about three guys with fears of commitment - we've seen it all before.

Eric Melin
Scene-Stealers.com

The characters, their motivations, the plot machinations, the forced banter - it's all contrived. Not only can you see the entire story coming from miles away, there's a late-in-the-game plot twist that feels desperate and tonally wrong.

East Bay Express

Smarter-than-average urban sex comedy.

Kimberley Jones
Austin Chronicle

The three leads' distinct storylines are metered choppily, there's an illogic to the scene sequence and plotting, and that initial pact, casually arrived at, is suddenly framed as a game-changing bet late in the film.

An amiable romcom endowed with romance, penis-humour and M-rated sex

Nope.

Perry Seibert
TV Guide's Movie Guide

The movie's predictability doesn't derail its light charms, at least not until the plot makes a fatal tonal error.

Witney Seibold
Nerdist

Learning to grow out of your over-confident, sexually destructive, ignorant, sexist, loutish period may have made for a worthwhile story, but That Awkward Moment spends the bulk of its time with horrible young men you don't want to spent time with.

Irish Independent

Efron and Poots don't quite work together, but Mackenzie Davis is very good as the privileged, but secretly passionate, Chelsea.
