Dull, narcissistic and disconnected from humanity, That Awkward Moment contains not an ounce of real humanity or organic character development.

"That Awkward Moment" is perfectly titled - as in that awkward moment when your romantic comedy isn't at all romantic and often blithely unfunny.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

From the outside That Awkward Moment looks like a typical, throwaway comedy but it has heart and an indie spirit that turn it into something altogether different, something that deserves to be seen.

The refreshing thing about this otherwise formulaic romantic comedy is that writer-director Tom Gormican gives the verbal humor some rhythm, shooting many of the dialogue-driven scenes in long takes so they develop a pleasing ebb and flow.

Playing like an explicit, junior equivalent of Sex And The City combined with the emotional immaturity that Adam Sandler delivers with his own style of ensemble movies, the film's plot lines are messy and unfocused.

An extremely attractive cast fails to overcome the clichés in writer/director Tim Gormican's film.

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.

[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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

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

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

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.

Smarter-than-average urban sex comedy.
