Tom Gormican, the co-producer of Movie 43, makes his directorial debut in the uproarious romantic comedy film That Awkward Moment (originally titled Are We Officially Dating?), which he also wrote. It stars three of Hollywood’s hottest stars, Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan, who awkwardly navigate through the tricky terrain of modern-day romance with hilarious results -- entertaining both sexes with raunchy and irreverent humor. Imogen Poots, Mackenzie Davis and Jessica Lucas co-star.

Three best friends, Jason, Daniel and Mikey, are all at different stages in their respective relationships. While Mikey’s marriage is falling apart, Jason cannot commit to a serious relationship and Daniel falls for his female wingman Chelsea. When Mikey announces that his wife Vera has asked for a divorce, the friends go out to celebrate being single together. However, each ends up secretly hooking up not too long after vowing to support their friend by remaining single. Jason meets an author named Ellie who he begins to see on a regular basis; Mikey and Vera reignite their romance; and Daniel and Chelsea begin dating. Everything comes to a head during Thanksgiving. Mikey’s wife admits she does not love him anymore. Jason cannot fully commit to Ellie by attending her father’s funeral. Daniel denies he and Chelsea are dating after Mikey and Jason find out about their relationship.

The three friends fight and subsequently make up as they try to navigate through the “confusing” moment of their complicated love lives, deciding where everything is going. Mikey decides to move on and tests the waters of the dating scene. Daniel gets hit by a taxi while on his way to declare his love to Chelsea and wins her back. And Jason, the guy who could never get through the awkward moment and take a relationship to the next level, realizes he loves Ellie and finally makes the plunge.

The DVD and Blu-ray contain four character profiles, as well as an all-new featurette, “Threesome: More Awkward Moments,” starring Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan, as they dish about their experiences making the film. The Blu-ray comes with an exclusive, never-before-seen extended gag reel, along with the all-new “Moment of Truth: Behind the Scenes,” featuring writer/director Tom Gormican on his inspiration for the film and the process of bringing it to the screen.
