  • Summary: It happens. You meet someone at the bar, one thing leads to another, and the next thing you know you're waking up wondering (and potentially regretting) exactly what took place the night before. Such is the case for Fred, who starts to panic when his free-spirited one night stand, Mindy, informs him that she's not on birth control; but for some reason isn't too concerned. Fred, determined not to become a father, is forced into an all-day adventure with Mindy that is filled with awkward social situations and untimely roadblocks as he struggles to preserve his New York City world. With a resolution finally in sight, the no-boundaries Mindy starts to grow on the overly anxious Fred, forcing him to make a decision that will change the rest of his life.

    Deftly avoiding both the haphazardness of mumblecore and the fakery of studio romantic comedies, Khoury deploys a light directorial touch marked by assured thesping and a genuine appreciation for neurotic angst.

    At the very least, The Pill could have been a pleasant exercise in screenwriting sharpness if Fred and Mindy's situation had been confined and (un-)resolved within the confines of its very promising first scene.

    What makes Khoury's film work - at least until its cop-out ending - is the consistency of Fred's loathsomeness.

    While their story is feather-light, Khoury and his actors have each type down perfectly. Worth seeing with friends, but you won't want to make a date night out of it.

    This might be more entertaining if any of the three main characters were at all likable.

    Like the lovely indie "Weekend," this small-scale story focuses on a couple of days in a possibly blossoming romance. Unlike that movie, it's full of gender stereotypes and all-around bad behavior. There's no one here to root for.
