Review

Our Score
Zac Efron headlines a lightweight but quite likeable comedy "bromance" about Jason (Efron), Mikey (Michael B Jordan) and Daniel (Miles Teller), three New York friends at critical junctures in their love lives. When Mikey's wife is caught after "intense sex" with her lawyer, Jason and Daniel vow to stay "seriously single" in sympathy. But love doesn't work like that. The threesome's plans for non-committal sex with a whole roster of girls is soon thwarted by the start of real new relationships. That Awkward Moment is corny, contrived and rather uneven in tone. But there's genuine charisma between the three leads, and overall it's amiable undemanding entertainment.

Summary

Jason has been dumped by his girlfriend, while Mikey is going through a divorce. To avoid further heartbreak, they and their friend Daniel vow to remain permanently single. However, Daniel and Jason's resolve is tested by the women in their lives, while Mikey is tempted to save his marriage. Romantic comedy, with Zac Efron, Miles Teller, Michael B Jordan and Imogen Poots.
