One could only feel sorry for Alycia Delmore as the pliant wife of the silly husband, who goes along with his irritatingly neurotic friend's idea.

What finally lifts 'Humpday' above macho junk like 'The Hangover' is its all-inclusive warmth: for all their adolescent self-delusion, Shelton truly loves these characters. And after 90 minutes, so will you.
December 18, 2009
Humpday is a high-concept comedy made for low-budget money that might just be one of the funniest films of the year.
December 18, 2009
The ending of the movie is an awful let-down, which is a shame: the film had been weirdly involving and Alycia Delmore is good as Ben's outraged wife.

Shelton has been tagged as an extremely adept chronicler of the associations between men. It's fair to say that the director is good on relationships, period.

What's intriguing in this set-up is what the dare might teach the guys about the nature of sexuality.

Getting to the showdown is a fine and funny journey.

Humpday is something surprising: a sharply observed slice of life, an entertaining example of the microbudget genre called mumblecore.
July 31, 2009
Humpday succeeds by grounding its risqué premise in the awkwardness and humor of real people trying their damnedest to communicate. A lot.
July 30, 2009
This is an excruciating dramedy of schadenfruede for the anything-goes hipness of the last decade and a half which has devalued contentment as a cop out
July 30, 2009
While at times the improvisational dialogue sounds like audio filler, the three leads are poignant and perceptive. Likewise Shelton's film, considerably more complex than those 'bros will be bros' comedies of male bonding.
July 27, 2009
Those conversations were really memorable and really well executed.
July 27, 2009
It kind of runs out of steam.
July 24, 2009
With astute and subtle precision, [director] Shelton burrows deeply inside the psyches of her characters who do not want to admit that they've changed considerably since they last saw each other a decade before.
July 24, 2009
Unlike a lot of institutional raunch in today's comedy, Humpday finds laughs out of what is rarely made explicit between buddies.
July 24, 2009
Shelton never follows up on the film's satirical possibilities.
July 24, 2009
Even if the movie doesn't completely work, it's apt to leave you talking about it for days.
July 24, 2009
The scenes between husband and wife are spectacularly awkward and arresting, though the movie grows more dubious the nearer the guys get to their shooting session in a local hotel room.
