It is election season once again and with that comes ubiquitous campaign signs filling nearly every street corner throughout Mesa. Despite Arizona Revised Statute 16-1019 and Mesa City Code Title 11-41-7G and 8-6-F&S, which prohibit campaign signs within 15 feet of the face of a curb or the edge of the pavement, almost all of these signs are within 4-5 feet, thus creating traffic hazards as motorists struggle to see cross traffic through the kaleidoscope of vision-restricting banners and signs. In addition, these laws regulate the number of signs that can be placed on any one corner, yet most street corners in Mesa contain more than a dozen signs, and some nearly two dozen, all jammed together, one on top of the other.

It’s pretty ironic that a comedy called “That Awkward Moment” is radically lacking in awkward moments. The film isn’t without some potentially uncomfortable setups like walking in on two people having sex, realizing you’ve just had sex with a hooker, and showing up to a fancy party in a racy outfit. “That Awkward Moment” never goes all the way with its awkward humor, though. Scenes often feel incomplete, as if the director yelled, “cut,” before getting to the punch line. As a result, the film fails to deliver any genuine awkward humor or humor in general.
