That Awkward Moment when you actually know pretty much what to expect.
The film was extremely predictable, with some small twists and turns.
The movie had some obviously expected scenes with vulgar humor but the unexpected small parts where the audience gets to peek into the emotional side of the characters are what made the movie worth watching.
That Awkward Moment is a romantic comedy written and directed by Tom Gormican and developed by What If It Barks Films.
The film, formally known as Are We Officially Dating? was featured in 2010’s Hollywood Black List as one of the top best un-produced screenplays.
The main cast for the film was fully announced during Oct. 2012 and production for this film began in Nov. 2012.
That Awkward Moment stars Zac Efron as Jason, Miles Teller as Daniel and Michael Bakari Jordan as Mikey, Imogen Poots as Ellie, Mackenzie Davis as Vera and Jessica Lucas as Chelsea.
The movie is mainly focused on Jason(Efron), Daniel(Teller) and Mikey’s (Jordan) bromance.
The movie begins with a flashback and is briefly narrated by Efron’s character,but doesn’t really follow through until the end of the movie.
That Awkward Moment follows three young men living in New York City.
Throughout the movie Mikey is dealing with a post marriage break up with the desire to keep the relationship going with failed attempts.
Mikey’s friends Jason and Daniel promise to stay single together to encourage Mikey to get back into playing the field and partying hard together.
Like all movies, the promises end up broken and the friends all start seeing girls a little more than casually, but keep it from each other.
That Awkward Moment does not give the girls in the movie a background, which was a little unsatisfying. However, they give Ellie (Poots) a little bit of background but only because she was seeing Jason, the main character throughout the movie.
Towards the end of the movie all three men end up in a fight when they’ve realized that they each have broken the promise they made to each other.
Realizing he’s wrong and that the promise was stupid, Jason takes the initiative to apologize to both of his friends and help them out.
Jason helps Mikey cope with the fact that his marriage is over and then encourages Daniel to confess his feelings.
That Awkward Moment is mostly aimed at women, but men can easily enjoy the movie.
The movie had a great story line but did not give enough depth to the characters and what they actually go through during their everyday life, how they cope with break ups, deciding feelings or admitting to them and allowing themselves to fall in love.
That Awkward Moment just kind of grazed these topics but did not give
enough time for the audience to understand. Of course, some parts where touching but most of the movie was just kind of focusing on the immaturity of the guys.
