That Awkward Moment. Yeah…

This past weekend, I saw the new romantic comedy That Awkward Moment, starring Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan, and Miles Teller. If you haven’t gotten to see this film yet, it is about three best friends that as any other guy at their age, just wants to have fun. None of them being tied down, including Michael B. Jordan’s character, Mikey, who just found out that his wife has been cheating on him and wants a divorce. Zac Efron’s character, Jason, and Miles Teller’s character, Daniel, make drastic attempts to cheer Mikey up. They make a pact that they will all stay single to revive their deep rooted, but recently distant friendship. As you can probably figure out by the reputation of the category romantic comedy, they didn’t exactly hold true to their pact.

I think my first mistake when seeing this movie was going with my family because of the expected rated R content. Regardless of who I saw it with, I don’t think I would’ve liked this film that well.

Don’t get me wrong, the girly half of my brain was in love with the men in this movie due to all of the romance. I mean most girls might enjoy this movie based solely on the idea of “changing” a player into a lovable boyfriend, but as far as romantic comedies go, I wasn’t very impressed.

Another aspect of this movie I wasn’t very fond of was the fact that it jumped around a lot. The movie was 90 minutes long and covered a time period of several months, leaving many details I was curious about unmentioned.

I recommend this film to the romantic comedy fanatics of the world. Even though there is a lack of originality pertaining to the ending of this romantic comedy compared to others, most people, myself included, would get a laugh and agree that the film is “cute.”
