That Awkward Moment Where The Trailer Drops
Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan & Miles Teller confront romantic issues

15 October 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Yahoo

Ah, the age-old story of how men and women view romance differently, and how so many misunderstandings can happen when wires are crossed... Despite a well-worn premise and apparent difficultly finding a decent title (it’s already been through the on-the-nose Are We Officially Dating?) That Awkward Moment actually looks like it could be entertaining. Check out the evidence in this first, red band trailer that features plenty of swearing and one big fake phallus.

The main reason for hope here is the easy chemistry between leading men Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan and, yes, Zac Efron. They play best buds Jason, Mikey and Daniel, who are all dealing with different levels of confusion over relationships or the status thereof.

When Mikey is dumped, the trio decides to go out on the town to drown his sorrows (with Daniel and Jason trying Viagra as an ill-advised way to avoid brewer’s droop). We also get to see their various interactions with the women in their lives, including Imogen Poots, Addison Timlin and Jessica Lucas.

There may not be a lot of fresh territory covered, but this first proper glimpse at the film gives us some real confidence. Written and directed by Tom Gormican, That Awkward Moment is out on February 7.
