That Awkward Moment (2014) Review [Dir. Tom Gormican]

As soon as I saw him in that red basketball jersey, my Zac Efron crush was well and truly cemented. Turns out, as the years go by, childhood crushes (at least for me) don’t look like they’re going away.

So I was pretty happy with the fact that, in That Awkward Moment, Zac takes centre stage.

The film centres on three best friends who agree to stay single when one of their marriages end. Turns out, it’s pretty difficult.

This is the kind of film that I used to love when I was younger and, apparently, I haven’t stopped loving them. I liked the fact that it was funny, even though it involves a marriage breakdown.

I also liked the dynamic between the cast, it really felt like they were mates (which I guess is probably true from the goofs they show in the credit scene).

I liked the romances, too. I liked that the film took three different guys in three different situations (married, sleeping with everyone and not really doing much with anyone) and showed what love does to them.

I think another thing that was cool about it was the fact that things that we probably associate with “girls in films”, such as eating ice-cream after a break-up, talking about relationships and actually being emotional when the relationships took a turns, were given the male treatment.

One thing I didn’t like, which seems common with these kinds of films, is that it seemed too quick. I’d look up and something new was happening, with not much background.
