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
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.
