That Awkward Moment

“I did what I was supposed to do. I checked the boxes” – Mikey (Michael B. Jordan)

That Awkward Moment

When three best friends find themselves in funky relationship scenarios, they make a pact to remain single in Focus Features’ latest film, “That Award Moment”. Mikey (Michael B. Jordan), a young doctor, faces martial problems, while his two single buddies, Jason (Zac Efron) and Daniel (Miles Teller) , are fighting their monogamous temptations.

I think most people expect pretty boy Zac Efron to be the star of the movie, but Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller are both equally amazing! “Fruitvale Station”, which I named the best film of 2013, was only a stepping stone for Jordan’s career. He’s like your best friend’s adorable little brother; at first he was young and goofy so you didn’t really pay him any attention like his role in “Pastor Brown” (2009), but, now, he is mature, attractive, and cleared to play ball.

Michael B. Jordan was great in the movie. Completely in sync with the other main characters as a hip, funny New York slinging bachelor, Jordan was a strategic addition to the predominantly White cast.

On the other hand, Miles Teller initially grabbed my attention in 2013’s small-time movie, “The Spectacular Now”. Teller always plays the sarcastic, savvy cool guy. And he was no different in this one; very charismatic, flirtatiously funny, and unstructured.

The Awkward Moment was the mainstream version of “The Wood” (1999) or the testosterone-filled version of “Sex and the City” (2008). The movie constantly reminds me of the tenderness yet intricacy of falling in love and how “awkward” that process can be. Also, the 94-minute flick gives women a keener sense of how crummy guys are when peer pressure is involved, and how the power of a woman’s affection can change any circumstance.

I am firmly disagreeing with other film critics by saying “That Awkward Moment” is the best movie of 2014 thus far. I know it is only weeks into the year, but I have a seen a handful of films such as “Her”, “The Nut Job”, and “Ride Along”. Of course, that bold statement can quickly be retracted when another great movie comes along.

Also, please keep in mind that most film critics thought 10-time Academy Award nominated “American Hustle” was brilliant, while I thought it was exaggerated and cheesy. So, cheers to the power of opinions!

“That Awkward Moment” is in theatres today. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it is certifiably a “first date” type of movie.
