A clichéd "bromance" film with all the wrong beats
That Awkward Moment seems like a promising comedy for guys, the raunchy humor, objectifying women and boner pills. It sounds like a good time, right? HELL NO!!! That Awkward Moment seizes every chance it gets to be as clichéd as possible and to be as unfunny as possible. Zac Efron and Michael B. Jordan turn in acceptable performances but that is overshadowed by the thin-as-ice plot and crude humor, which ends up losing two good performances in the mix. To be fair to those involved, this film should have either been shelved or given more thought, either or doesn't give this film a leg to stand on. The next Knocked Up it is not. This is Sex and The City with too much testosterone and not nearly enough laughs to justify any of the plot holes, clichés or how these characters treat women. This isn't a rental, this is more like a bottom dollar movie you take a chance on at Wal Mart.
