You know that awkward moment when the person you’re seeing assumes you’re in a “relationship” that you can’t remember ever agreeing to be in? Or how about those times when the person you’re occasionally dating begins a conversation with, “So…,” as in “So, where’s this heading?” “So, when are we going to make it official?” “So, should we change our relationship status on Facebook?” Or, “So, can you give me a key so I don’t have to knock on your door anymore?” The R-rated romantic comedy That Awkward Moment explores those particularly awkward times in your dating life when signals get crossed, feelings get hurt, and the person you’re sort of with walks away in a huff while leaving behind a string of cuss words in their wake.
Zac Efron (Neighbors), Miles Teller (soon to be seen in the Fantastic Four reboot), and Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station) team up for this occasionally raunchy comedy with a lot of heart. Written and directed by Mackenzie Davis, That Awkward Moment delivers the laughs because it’s relatable and because it features a talented ensemble who work well off of each other. With Imogen Poots and Jessica Lucas in supporting roles, this adult comedy isn’t one you should pop into your DVD player for relationship advice, but it isn’t a bad choice for a date night spent at home.
