That Awkward Moment is the first ‘brom-com’ ever to hits screens, starring Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B Jordan. It’s rare to see a film about men with commitment issues that’s actually from the perspective of a guy and it’s really refreshing to see something different to the repetitive rom-coms that are released in waves, especially at this time of year.
insight into the male mind or any sort of decent advice when it comes to dating but it’s as realistic as a film like this needs to be. That said, there are a few plot points that seem to take the stereotype a little too far. Of course, this film is fuelled by testosterone but their loyalty to the mantra ‘bros over hoes’ seems to be taken slightly too seriously in light of the events that unfold.
the plot. I’m not going to pretend that I didn’t enjoy seeing Zac Efron bare chested and butt-naked, because, trust me, I did, but I can’t help but feel the sex was just for sex’s sake and was just unnecessary. Of course, the idea of romance plays a massive part in this film too, but there’s only about 2 minutes worth of really mushy material. There’s just enough romance to justify the ‘rom’ in ‘brom-com’, but this film definitely leans more towards the comedy side of the spectrum. The jokes are often crude and awkward but somehow this film just works.
