Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “In ‘That Awkward Moment,’ three guys decide to support a friend devastated by a recent breakup by vowing to maintain their single status for as long as possible. The plan gets derailed when they each fall in love and have to secretly work around their pledge to bachelorhood, while trying to figure out the complications of modern day relationships.”

Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times

Claudia Puig, USA Today
…Multiple gross-out conversations revolve around what happens when Daniel uses the bathroom in Jason's apartment. … About 75 f-words. …
Adam R. Holz, Plugged In

Chris Knight, National Post
…Stars squandered on derivative brom-com… clunkily stringing together callow, predictable scenes from rom-coms past. …
Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post
…a couple of twentysomething dudes jacked up on Viagra school each other in the acrobatic art of urinating “horizontally.” …
Scott Foundas, Variety
…its big epiphany moments (Guys can fall in love, too!) are shallow enough to make you long for the comparatively profound rom-com oeuvre of Kate Hudson. … [C+]
