"THAT AWKWARD MOMENT"
(2014) (Zac Efron, Miles Teller) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Romantic Comedy: Two confirmed bachelors agree to remain romantically unattached to anyone to prove their solidarity with their married friend whose wife is leaving him.
- Unlike their married doctor friend, Mikey (MICHAEL B. JORDAN), book cover designers Jason (ZAC EFRON) and Daniel (MILES TELLER) are confirmed bachelors who enjoy casual hook-ups with various young women they put on their self-proclaimed "rosters." When Mikey discovers that his lawyer wife, Vera (JESSICA LUCAS), is cheating on him and wants a divorce, Jason and Daniel welcome him back to their world where all agree not to get romantically involved with anyone in a sign of solidarity for Mikey.
But then Jason has a one-night stand with Ellie (IMOGEN POOTS) and leaves upon believing she's a hooker, only to discover that she's actually an aspiring author and new client with his boss' firm. After that misunderstanding, they start seeing each other. At the same time, Daniel ends up sleeping with the guys' gal-pal Chelsea (MACKENZIE DAVIS) and starts to develop feelings for her, all while Mikey tries to reconcile with Vera. With none of them knowing such romantic developments about each other, the three friends try to maintain their non-committal stances that end up putting their budding romances in jeopardy.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
