Funny at times but more awkward than anything else!

'THAT AWKWARD MOMENT': Three Stars (Out of Five)

Sex comedy flick from first time director/writer Tom Gormican. It stars Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan as three young men trying to have casual relationships with women (involving primarily just sex) while not actually dating. It was originally titled 'ARE WE OFFICIALLY DATING' (which is how it was released in Australia). That title does fit the storyline more but I think the one they went with is appropriate as well; because the movie is funny at times but it's also more awkward than anything else.

Efron plays Jason, Teller plays Daniel and Jordan plays Mikey. The three are best friends and Jason and Daniel (who work together at a publishing company designing book covers) are trying to help Jordan (a young doctor) get through a difficult divorce. They celebrate being single (by going out to the bars and hooking up) and make a pact to stay that way. Each is tempted to renege on their agreement with one another when their sexual relationships become more serious.

The film reminds me a lot of 80s youth sex comedies, I loved growing up, but it's not quite as good. Most of the jokes and situations seem like they probably read a lot funnier on paper but don't play that way (and Gormican's script was listed on the 2010 'Hollywood Black List'; as one of the best un-produced comedies). The three lead actors have all been in much better films recently, so you should be able to expect a lot more coming from them, but in this movie their delivery is just 'awkward' (mostly)! I think it's primarily just the inexperienced director's fault. He does get the style and mood of the film right though and his script must have been pretty well written. It is worth seeing for a few chuckles if you really like the genre.
