What is it about?
Three best friends navigate relationships and prepare themselves for the inevitable moment where you have to decide where the relationship is going.
Who is in it?
Zac Efron - Jason
Michael B. Jordan - Mikey
Miles Teller - Daniel
After going back and forth with his wife in a relationship where they "checked each other's boxes", Mikey finally admits to himself what he's been avoiding and tells his wife to say it, for the both of them.
Through the door, his wife eventually says, "I don't love you anymore".
"Being there for someone when they need you, that's all relationships are."
I have this developing habit of selecting obscure movies on random streaming platforms while working out. Some have been good, others, well, it got me through the workout.
I saw this film on the Peacock Network and saw the heavy names colliding and figured it was a good bet. I never understood the Zac Efron hype, but Miles Teller is decent, and well, Michael B. Jordan is a mega-star.
That Awkward Moment has an interesting concept, but the overall film felt like a plot aiming to be deeper in meaning than it actually came across. The film of course had its moments and carried some sophomoric moments of humor, but for most of the film, the characters feel shallow and the relationships lack depth. The entire movie I just kept waiting for the depth that really strikes the essence of relationships and of course, that awkward moment.
Besides Mikey and his wife, most of the decisions (And the relationships) in front of Jason and Daniel felt quite obvious.
Overall, the actors really brought what felt like a lackluster script this far. Feel free to watch for background filler as I did, but don't expect much more from it than that.
