A romantic comedy from the man’s perspective sounds a bit like a pipe dream, but Tom Gormican will be making that dream a reality when That Awkward Moment premieres in theaters on Jan. 31. The movie stars Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan, and Miles Teller as three best friends who are trying to navigate the awkward moment in a relationship between dating and not-quite-officially-dating.
While most romcoms (like 99.9% of romcoms) show relationships from the woman’s perspective, That Awkward Moment is flipping the tables. Efron, Jordan, and Teller’s characters deal with their own romantic relationships in ways that are equally hilarious and compelling. After watching the trailer, we’ve decided that any of these characters would make a good boyfriend — or at least a funny boyfriend.
Although Efron might be the true headliner of this cast — he is, after all, a Hollywood heartthrob — Jordan and Teller are moving into the huge-celebrity-crush category with this film. Jordan has an especially funny moment in the trailer when he says he needs to eat some ice cream because his girlfriend just broke up with him (he gets it!) Meanwhile, Teller seems to be on the opposite side of the man-spectrum by complaining about not being able to fart when girls are around.
Between the three, every girl is bound to be attracted to Efron, Jordan, or Teller in That Awkward Moment. But our question is: why can’t we date all three? (Other than, they don’t have our numbers of course.)
