“..the film is laden (and leaden) with romantic comedy tropes from another eras - hooky coincidences, woodenly delivered lines..”
by Kate Erbland [Film.com]

“..That Awkward Moment has commitment issues: It lacks the courage of its bad taste..”
by Adam Graham [Globe and Mail]
1.5 of 4

“..take three horny guys, all twentysomethings, mix with a plot that was old last century, and serve to an audience so desperate for dick jokes..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
3 of 4

“..smart and sharp-tongued, homegrown indie romance Three Night Stand may be responsible for presenting the quintessential Canuck love scene..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
2.5 of 4

“..it's a Valentine's Day date movie that guys won't mind seeing, and women will find amusing enough and easy on the eyes..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

“..it has some good actors, and some quick dialogue, which also has the feel of real-life. But the plot forces things a bit, and the direction is uncertain; just when it seems willing to take some risks, it retreats..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

“..but never mind the bathroom jokes: this one's a stinker through and through..”

MAS NEGRO QUE LA NOCHE :

“..this might just be the silliest Mexican movie of the year, 3D or not..”

THE EQUALIZER :

“..a stone-dumb movie, unwilling to allow Washington even a hint of uniqueness (apart from the usual silverware straightening and public book reading, shorthand cliches for "smart")..”

THE BOXTROLLS :

“..delectable treat that balances themes of identity and class warfare with Monty Python-style political skewering, quirky humor and dairy jokes..”
by Brian Truitt [USA Today]

SAINT LAURENT :

“..pure haute couture - considerably more spectacular, but also less practical, with its baroque ornamentation and slip-sliding chronology..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN :

“..painfully well-meaning but largely unpersuasive bid for cross-generational understanding feels at once of-the-moment and too obvious by half..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
