If you enjoy movies like About Last Night (Rob Lowe and James Belushi), and St. Elmo's Fire, you might well like this flick.
Jason (played by Zac Efron), Daniel and Mikey are three twenty-something pals living in New York. Jason and Daniel are work colleagues in an advertising agency, whilst Mikey is a doctor. Jason is newly single after his girlfriend Christie unceremoniously dumps him, Mikey's wife Vera is cheating on him with a lawyer and wants a divorce, and Daniel has a fledgling "friends with benefits" relationship with Chelsea.
As the three guys lick their wounds from failed and failing relationships, they start hitting the local nightspots in search of new paramours. Jason soon hooks up for a one night stand with the cynical, feisty, sharp-tongued and sexy Ellie, a twenty-something NY girl with attitude. Soon afterwards, the three unlucky in love fellows make a pact to stay single, but it gets complicated when Jason finds himself irresistibly drawn into an affair with sparky Ellie...
This film reminded me quite a lot of the eighties classic, About Last Night. Jason is the affable, good-looking chap that the girls can't resist, reminiscent of Rob Lowe's character in the aforementioned movie. Daniel is the joker in the pack, an irreverent, cheeky chappy, who's just like James Belushi's character in About Last Night, indeed with his looks he could even be mistaken for a Belushi brother. The film is very stylish and the lead characters are likeable, but the plot does wander a bit aimlessly at times. The sequence involving a sex toy at a posh dinner party is very cool.
Overall, the movie has the vibe of a male version of Sex And The City, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Three guys vow to stay single. Jason (Zac Efron) is a NYC book cover designer who plays the field. He doesn't realize he is dating a woman until after they break up with him. Daniel (Miles Teller) works with Jason and has a friends with benefits relationship with Chelsea (Mackenzie Davis). Guess how that works out...hint it's a chick flick. Mike (Michael B. Jordan) is a doctor whose wife (Jessica Lucas) wants a divorce and is cheating on him with a lawyer. Jason meets Ellie (Imogen Poots) who is everything he wants in a woman as this throws a wrench into the "everybody stay single and play the field like we're in college" vow.

This is a chick flick poorly disguised as a guy's film. We know it is a chick flick because it is overrated due to Zac Efron being in it. It tosses some crude humor at us and some better barbs about relationships, but frankly it is the same old Hollywood schtick that brings nothing new to the table. Having said that, the actors did a fine job in their roles made unconvincing by a trite script.

Will do as a chick flick rental.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex. No nudity. Efron nearly nude.

I wish I cared enough about this film to write the truly scathing review it so obviously deserves...

I wasn't expecting too much from this film but was pleasantly surprised. I'd advise not watching the trailer, as it gives away a few of the better comedy moments. Does have some lad, slightly crude humour but was entertaining and some genuinely funny moments. Quite a classic rom com ie slightly cheesy in places but the comedy and a few romantic scenes, well played by all the main characters, made for an enjoyable film.

Just before I sat down my thoughts on "That Awkward Moment" I saw the other reviewers were generous with their stars. And even though I feel that this comedy is much better than the recent offerings of the Hollywood in the comedy department, it is still quite a predictable film, let me explain. And I am sorry for spoilers, but I cannot really say anything about the great cinematography and/or directing and/or amazing Oscar-worthy performances... BUT I still liked the film! It's pleasant and it's funny, but it has nothing special about it.

You know how it stars. Three best buddies, Zac Efron (who I thought after being soooo good in The Paperboy [DVD] would stick to the classy films!), Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan mock that perplexing "moment" in every dating relationship when you are presented with the inevitable "So...where is this going?" (this is asked by a girl, of course).

The biggest chunk of the film is devoted to the three fellas going out and having fun and then the special girls enter and the guys want to still have fun (one of them is actually getting a divorce from his wife, whom he seems to love and wants to win back, but the other two literally forbid him).

The climax. It all gets pretty messy when the special girls realize that the guys are still fooling around (at the same time the divorcing guy realizes his beloved wife is still very much astray, even though they were trying to "work things out"). Ah you see, it's not all black and white. Guys can fall in love and stay in love, too, and the women can also cheat!

The end: romantic. It all works out. Zac Efron gets his girl, etc. Oh, and now he is asking that inevitable "So...".

P.S. There are quite a few good laughs!
