Review

When Mikey (Michael B. Jordan) a doctor at a local hospital splits from his wife, he along with his two friends Jason and Daniel (Zac Efron and Miles Teller) make a pact to have fun and hold onto bachelorhood. However when each of the three friends finds himself in a serious relationship their bond starts to fray at the edges.

That Awkward Moment feels like a male friendly version on the rom com as the three sexist friends bed different women, make jokes about penis's and even do a bit of planking after taken some Viagra tablets.

Miles Teller plays the same character that he did in "21 and over”, a smart talking ass who has a funny line for every situation whilst Zac Efron is,well,Zac Efron,all smile and very little charm. The scene at the end of the film in a bookstore where he declares his undying love for Ellie (Imogen Poots) is so cringe worthy that you'll be watching it through your fingers and squirming in your seat with embarrassment. None of the three friends are particularly likeable, Mikey being so heartbroken by his wife leaving him that jumps into bed with the first woman who enters his doctor’s office. Whilst Jason believes Ellie to be a prostitute because she shows all the signs, (she wears ankle boots and has condoms and money in her room).

That Awkward Moment feels like a bad episode of the Zooey Deschanel TV series "New Girl". It might be good for a date night offering some laughs along the way. However I guarantee that you'll have forgotten about it by the time you drop your date off at the end of the night.
