      "That Awkward Moment" is a romantic/sex comedy about three male bestfriends in their twenties living in New York City. Two of them, Jason(Zac Efron) and Daniel (Miles Teller), work all book cover designers ina publishing house. The other, Mikey (Michael B. Jordan), is anemergency room doctor.

      While Jason and Daniel are happily swinging singles with their rostersof girlfriends, Mikey has just been told by his wife that she wants adivorce. All three guys promise to each other that they would allremain single together.

      Unknown to his friends though, Mikey strove to revive his marriage withwife Vera (Jessica Lucas). On the other hand, Jason meets and getsclose to a new girl Ellie (Imogen Poots). Daniel begins to see his BFF-and pick-up partner Chelsea (Mackenzie Davis) in a different light. Canall three yuppies actually keep steadfast in their fraternal pledge?

      Zac Efron is undeniably fit for this charming yet shallow and arrogantcharacter. It seems though that he had a step backward from his seriousportrayals in "The Paper Boy" and "Parkland" to find himself in ratherembarrassing scenes in the first third of the film (they were funnythough). However, in the final third, Zac was more in his element. Hisfinal monologue alone reaffirms his status as romantic lead. This wasdespite my opinion that his Jason and Ellie do not really jivetogether.

      Miles Teller plays the raunchy, noisy, annoying friend here. He is thefunniest and the most relaxed of the three main actors. He remains verylikable despite his smart-alecky character, coming across as a youngAndrew McCarthy. His chemistry with his partner Mackenzie Davis was thebest of the three pairs in the film.

      Michael B. Jordan is fresh from his acclaimed performance last year asan ill-fated ex-con in "Fruitvale Station". His character is the moststable of the three friends, and his character does not really get tooidiotic situations. He finds himself in more dramatic than comicmoments here, which makes his character feel like an odd man out.

      The comedy aspect was only occasionally hilarious when an actor makes atotal fool of himself. There are two big comedy gimmicks here that willmake this film memorable. One was when they show Zac and Miles try topee while Viagra was still on full effect. The other was when Zac goesto Ellie's birthday party with his awkward sense of "dress up." Otherthan that, nothing really funny, more of annoying, grating and forced.

      The romantic aspect fared better. It was actually quite well-written,though treading on very familiar ground of male-female relationshipsand commitment phobia. When is going out just simply going out? Thefilm was quite frank on scenes and language of a sexual nature though,with scenes of semi-nudity of the three actors. I was surprised to seethis rated only R-13 locally. This should at least be an R-18 for mebecause maturity is required to properly understand this aspect of thefilm.

      What appealed to me about the film was that, from the trailer, itdidn't appear to be just another cheesy, cute love story. And it's not.I liked this film–the characters, the comedy, the conflict. This castand crew delivered. It's refreshing and touching and genuine.

      I was most pleased with Miles Teller and Mackenzie Davis' performances.Teller sort of reminded me of John Cusack, only better. It's likeCusack's always aware of the camera. Teller doesn't care that it'sthere. He's just gonna go do his thing.

      These guys look like they had a lot of fun filming this movie.

      Try it. You might like it.

      I saw "That Awkward Moment", starring Zac Efron-New Year's Eve,Hairspray-2007; Miles Teller-Project X, Footloose-2011; Michael B.Jordan-Fruitvale Station, Red Tails and Imogen Poots-Fright Night-2011,28 Weeks Later.

      This is a romantic comedy about the relationships of twenty year oldsand their hook-up mentality. Zac, Miles and Michael are three bestbuds, and have been ever since college. Michael is the only one of thethree that is married. When Michael's marriage goes on the rocks, Zacand Miles decide to comfort him by making a pact; they will all justbed as many girls as possible, without getting serious. Theirdefinition of serious involves the girl using the word 'So', as in 'So,where is our relationship going?' The guys call this that awkwardmoment. Then, of course, Zac meets Imogen, Miles falls for a closefriend and Michael tries to get back with his estranged wife. All pactsare eventually thrown out the window. There is some nudity, mostly theguys, but nothing too graphic is really shown; when they are nude, theyare nude, but certain parts are discreetly blocked by something-Thereis a funny scene that is actually educational; I'm not sure if it istrue-I have not tried it-but you learn how to urinate, while having anerection. There are some out takes and bloopers, as the credits startbut nothing at the very end. It's rated "R" for language and sexualcontent-partial nudity-and has a running time of 1 hour & 34 minutes. Idon't know if I would buy it on DVD but it would be alright, as arental.

      That Awkward Moment seems like a promising comedy for guys, the raunchyhumor, objectifying women and boner pills. It sounds like a good time,right? HELL NO!!! That Awkward Moment seizes every chance it gets to beas clichéd as possible and to be as unfunny as possible. Zac Efron andMichael B. Jordan turn in acceptable performances but that isovershadowed by the thin-as-ice plot and crude humor, which ends uplosing two good performances in the mix. To be fair to those involved,this film should have either been shelved or given more thought, eitheror doesn't give this film a leg to stand on. The next Knocked Up it isnot. This is Sex and The City with too much testosterone and not nearlyenough laughs to justify any of the plot holes, clichés or how thesecharacters treat women. This isn't a rental, this is more like a bottomdollar movie you take a chance on at Wal Mart.

      After seeing the trailer, I wasn't expecting much from this romanticcomedy. But right off the bat I noticed that the dialog was morebelievable and realistic than in a typical romcom. The acting wasn'tbad either. Zac Effron and Miles Teller were both appealing. But Ithought they were upstaged by the actresses who played theirgirlfriends, Imogene Poots and Mackenzie Davis. Poots in particular hasa wonderful warm persona that reminds you of Meg Ryan at her best.Davis has a smaller role, but she has one of those husky romanticvoices that make you hang on every word. There was a convincingchemistry between both couples. If you're starved for romantic comedieslike I am, this is a good one to see (although there were a few mildgross-out parts).

      Did I laugh til I cried? No. Was I touched to the heart? No. Was it anearly front runner for the Best Picture of 2014? No.

      Was it a good movie? Yes, and you should go see it. The film startedout with a charming tone and was pretty steadily enjoyable all the waythrough. There was a very nice blend of witty comedy with some morepredictable yet successful humor.

      As a mid-January release, this movie wasn't really made to amaze, justto entertain, and yeah, it did just that.

      The three young leading men are on a very good track. It's good to havea film with these three men early on in their careers, because one daythey will all be in the elite. Miles Teller's performances in TheSpectacular Now was one that made me interested in seeing this one.Also, Zac Efron, who very quickly grew out of the Disney Boy shtick hasa very bright future ahead of him. Michael B. Jordan, who gave abreakout performance in Fruitvale Station also had enough of the charmto bring in some emotionally driven plot material and make it funny.

      The three men in the lead for this film carried it's somewhat averagestoryline all the way through, with an exceptionally surprising levelof enjoyment provide for my theater full of at least 100+.

      7/10
