That Awkward Moment - Review

"That Awkward Moment" is a strange anomaly in the world of "relationship dramedies" - or whatever you want to call them. Like so many movies, it's basically a bunch of young people dealing with love and dating and relationships, to the point where Tom Gormican's directorial debut at first comes across like one of those movies based on a relationship advice book ala "He's Just Not That Into You," only this one being from a young male perspective.

It opens with Zac Efron's character Jason talking about something called "The So" when the woman you're having sex with asks where the relationship is going. Honestly, it's not exactly the best way to start a movie that one assumes is targeting young women, possibly former "High School Musical" fans, who are going to see a movie based solely on Efron's presence. Let's just say that Jason is not exactly a charmer, and although I've never personally had any direct opinions about Efron either positive or negative--he was pretty funny in Josh Radnor's "Liberal Arts"--I can see diehard fans of his not liking this character.
