Trivia

In the dialogue at the bar and later at the reading, Jason, Zac Efron's character, mocks the young man about to hit on Imogen Poots by saying "they will drive UP to the Hamptons". From NYC which is where all of the characters live, you typically say "drive OUT" to the Hamptons not UP. The eastern end of Long Island is east of NYC, not north of it. See more »

A poorly made romcom
4 June 2014 | by matic-boh1See all my reviews

One would suspect that this film would offer the audience at least a fun experience and a decent amount of humor, but That Awkward Moment fails to deliver in every way. Not only does the film have a very predictable storyline and clichéd characters, it is also poorly paced and lacks any sort of momentum. The writing is weak and provides very few humorous moments, with the only encouraging aspect being the performance of Miles Teller, whose comedic talent does shine through. Overall, however, the three leading men lack any sort of chemistry, which results in disappointing delivery and causes the characters to be uninteresting. That Awkward Moment therefore fails to produce characters that are relatable on a emotional level, despite that being the film's main aim.
