In all honesty, Efron has been slowly but surely working his way through very interesting work since finishing up the High School Musical franchise. Rather than seeming to deliberately provoke controversy, he has instead given us a mixture of relatively light-hearted films like 17 Again or Hairspray and more edgy material like The Paperboy and the upcoming Parkland.
That Awkward Moment (as the NSFW red band trailer below demonstrates) gives us three friends getting up to an assortment of shenanigans, as they navigate relationships, Viagra and strap-on appendages. It’s hardly terribly novel stuff but likewise it doesn’t seem to be going for unpleasant/gross for the sake of being “shocking”.
The trailer gives a good number of laughs and as long as it hasn’t given us all of the best bits already, there should be lots of fun to be had come next January’s release date.
So here you go.
