Movie (Trailer) Review: That Awkward Moment

That Awkward Moment is one of those devastating realistic trailers that taps into an untold walk of life so accurately, we can hardly conceive of life without it. The artistic is achievement is overshadowed only by it’s cultural impact.

 The trailer tells the story of a handsome white guy who has a couple of roommates played by nerdy white guy and token black guy. Despite attracting the attention of a beautify, yet loose, blond babe, handsome white guy declares that if his token black friend - who has been recently dumped by his girlfriend for reasons unknown - was to be single, then all three roommates will remain single together in some sort of nonsensical bro-pact.

The most touching part of the trailer is when handsome white guy and nerdy white guy intervene in token black guy self-destructive habits by throwing his ice cream out the window. The two white friends suggest that instead of destroying his six-pack abs with empty calories, they all three go out and “drink like Keith Richards” at local watering hole. 

Just when you think the trailer is over, the trailer attempts to convince the viewing audience that some sort of drama will take place. The real mystery is what the hell is happening in the second half in the trailer. Who are these people and why should we care? Maybe we need to watch the movie to find out, but we never will.
