Every relationship has that “so” moment. For a guy like Jason (Zac Efron), that’s where things always end. He’s firmly committed to non-commitment. When the marriage of his friend Mikey (Michael B. Jordan) falls apart, Jason takes it as proof that the single life is for the better. To get Mikey back in the game, Jason enlists him and drinking buddy Daniel (Miles Teller) to take a shared vow: together, they’ll stay single as long as humanly possible. Then along comes Ellie (Imogen Poots), the unpredictable, unforgettable one-night hook-up who changes all the rules. Despite all his instincts, Jason just can’t let her go... and his status is about to get very complicated.

Common Sense Says
Underwhelming sex-themed comedy; lots of strong language.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the comedy That Awkward Moment follows three twenty-something best friends who vow to just hook up and not get involved with anyone in order to stay single together. Although stars Zac Efron, Miles Teller, and Michael B. Jordan are known for previously starring in teen-friendly fare, this is a mature post-college sex comedy that while not graphic in its depiction of sex, is still incredibly risque. There's near-constant strong language ("f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "pussy," "cock," "dick," etc.), and several sex scenes that show sides of breasts, butts, and bare shoulders, and women in bras and panties. The movie's message is that relationships require work, acknowledgement, and commitment.
