‘Labor Day’ drama, humor from ‘That Awkward Moment’

Love can bloom in strange places.

Hollywood tries to prove that again and again with the two major film openings this weekend.

“Labor Day” pairs Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet as a mystery man and reclusive mom who just may end up joining together to conquer both of their dilemmas, if the trailer is a good indicator.

“That Awkward Moment,” meanwhile, is a comedy that stars Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan as three pals who swear off commitment … and then have to fight their attraction to some appealing women.

I had to go to YouTube for the trailer for this one, and click a clack that swore I was of age to watch a saucy-themed preview.

Twentysomethings can get themselves into situations, can’t they?

  2. i’m really want to see the josh brolin one, looks pretty intense and the other looks quite funny, i’m a sucker for angsty 20somethings comedies. depends on the mood i guess. probably will reserve the zach flick for a rental and labor day on big screen )


    • I think that awkward moment is best experienced at home instead of in a theater of hooting twentysomethings for folks of our distinction, Beth (that being our shared year of birth). Labor Day, though, looks perfect for theater-enjoying.


    • You get nominated for these awards by bloggers who like what you write. It’s a network of writers supporting other writers, really. I have people whose blogs I read every day, everything they post. I am also a regular commenter on these blogs. If you’d like, I’d suggest clicking on the awards category on my blog page, and then on the various posts I’ve put up. I put the links to blogs I like on these pages. You can click to see if they’re people you’d like to follow, too. That’s how I got going. I started this blog 11 months ago, and have built it slowly but surely. I’m glad you’re reading my stuff, and I’m glad you asked for my advice, luxlife. Pleasure to talk with you.
