“That Awkward Moment” a delight to watch

“So, where is this going?”

And so begins the awkward moment in every relationship.

“That Awkward Moment” shares a funny, realistic point of view on relationships and friendships. The film, developed by What If It Barks Films, features three best friends living in New York City and processing the ups and downs of hookups, breakups, and starting over with new relationships.

The three main characters are all struggling with a unique dilemma. They vow to stay single after one of them discovers that his wife is cheating on him with a lawyer and wants a divorce.

When Jason (Zac Efron) and Daniel (Miles Teller), the two notorious bachelors who string more than one girl along at a time, each fall in love, they have to maneuver their way around their pact. Their scheming is hilarious and frustrating at the same time.

Meanwhile, Mikey (Michael B. Jordan) secretly gets back together with his wife and tries to hide it from his friends, who believe she will only break his heart again. I felt sorry for Mikey when he found out his wife was cheating on him, but in the end it was liberating to see him finally get over her.

The roller coaster of relationships is funny and relatable at the same time. The ending leaves the audience wanting more, and it could’ve been improved, but overall the movie is the perfect date night comedy. I recommend viewing the movie if only for a laugh.

Try not to take “That Awkward Moment” too seriously or compare it to your own life because it is just a movie after all.

“That Awkward Moment” is rated R, directed by Tom Gormican, and is 94 min. long.
