This movie is about three boys, three different yet similar relationships. Hard to believe that's Zac Efron, and that Michael Jordan is one of them. Anyway, they have a bet and basically each find a girl they have stories with, and see what happens, y'know? They aren't really shy and like to say the f word an awful lot, joking about it when with the girls, not so much when they're a boy band. They start hanging out at the pub. Like all romance stories, comedic attempts or not, breakups occur, mistakes are realized, and it's always a mystery as to how the boys will resolve their mistakes.
That's a short summary, I know, but the most interesting thing in this movie is when two people are on the toilet, urinating in an original way. The characters don't feel special in the city, the sort of people who you get their names after you pick them out of a jar. Efron's character designs book covers, who says that shoes are what always grabs a girl reader's attention. Maybe he's right, but there's really not much of a difference between a book for boys and girls. What grabs YOUR attention on a book or a movie? For me, it's movies that are not like this.
I wanted more to happen in this film, or perhaps less of what they were doing. Whatever "Awkward Moment" you may remember from the movie, every one is all kiss and no love. Every time Efron and his dating rivals are swearing, it sounds like they're debating what station to play on the radio. At the end, we have a proposal for an apology to Jason from Elly, and it's so ungripping and weird, it looks like the actors are agreeing with me.
