That Awkward (Yet Awesome) Moment

If you’re looking for a movie to see on a date night, or just something to go see with friends, this is TOTALLY for you.

Think your classic chick-flick, then exchange all the main female characters with guys. Guys in their mid- to late twenties A “dick-flick” (trademark my flatmate).


Jason (Zac Efron), Daniel (Miles Teller) and Mikey (Michael B. Jordan) are three friends who’ve known each other since college. When Mikey’s wife unexpectedly files for divorce, he’s forced to move in with Jordan and is suddenly thrown back into the single lifestyle.


Jason and Daniel work together, illustrating book covers. They’re both convinced that life will change for the worst if they let a woman ensnare them into a relationship, so they go out night after night looking for no-strings attached fun. In solidarity with Mikey, they take a pact to remain single for as long as he will be.


But life never goes according to plan, and while Mikey tries to win back his wife, Jason meets his perfect match, Ellie (Imogen Poots) and Daniel realises that his wing-woman Chelsea (Mackenzie Davis) could be more than just a friend.


The movie is an amazing depiction of our dear men’s world. The way they think and act, the things they feel but don’t want to let on. Their relationships with women and with each other.


It’s incredibly funny and moving, a collection of laugh-out-loud moments laced with “awww” scenes.
