    San Francisco Chronicle

    Humpday succeeds, often beautifully, by grounding its risque premise in the awkwardness and humor of real people trying their damnedest to communicate. A lot. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    While at times the improvisational dialogue sounds like audio filler, the three leads are poignant and perceptive. show more

    One of the best indie films of the year, Humpday is a lighter descendant of "sex lies and videotape," yet burrows just as deep into the male psyche and the human capacity for self-deceit. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    Maybe Humpday needed more characters and a less claustrophobic atmosphere. Maybe the film needed to be bolder and break a few boundaries itself. Maybe it could have better explained why these two men still need to be friends. Whatever the case, it certainly needed a better payoff. show more

    I'm guessing Humpday will make its natural, easygoing leading men -- Mark Duplass and Joshua Leonard -- much sought after. show more

    Funny, yes, but also observant and thought-provoking. show more

    Michael Sragow Baltimore Sun

    Humpday mixes hilarity with upset as the irresistible force of male pride meets the immovable object of sexual identity. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Humpday sells its admittedly far-fetched premise by illustrating how men often can't help but behave like stubborn children in the company of their friends -- even when the stakes are raised to ridiculous levels. show more

    TV Guide

    The movie does open up a lot of heretofore vacuum-sealed cans of worms. Does sex represent a sort of grand completeness that men secretly yearn for in their friendships? show more

    Humpday is mostly foreplay. But isn't that usually the most fun anyway? It certainly is in this film. show more

    This is one of the most horrible movies i have ever seen. No punch line poor quality a waste of time and effort. The only reason i am living this comment is for others no to waste their time on it. If you ever had a unfortunate experience of witnessing what "severed ways" you might understand why this movie is so bad. I have no idea why anyone in their right mind would give it five awards. In short the first thing you notice is very poor quality, lazy boring scenes with no punch lines, and if you somehow made it to the half of the movie...please know it's hopeless it does not get any better. Save your self from this horrible waste of time and pick another movie to watch. :)
