That Awkward Moment 

Unique toilet skills


Three of the best young actors working—Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller—star in this tonal misfire that can't decide whether it wants to be American Pie or early David Gordon Green. And so we all suffer. The debut of writer-director Tom Gormican—his only other credit is as a producer of the wretched Movie 43That Awkward Moment finds Jason (Efron) and Daniel (Teller) supporting the recently separated Mikey (Jordan) by pledging to stay single. But everyone secretly has a girl on the hook: Jason has Imogen Poots marble-mouthedly trying to hide her English accent; Daniel has fellow wingperson Chelsea (Mackenzie Davis, with a chill, endearing Lake Bell vibe) and Mikey is still hooking up with the ex. Gormican sandbags any emotion with a series of dumb dick jokes aimed at guys who probably aren't in the audience anyway. Well-intentioned, clumsily executed. Mr. Skin alert: Efron's naked body laid across a toilet.
