Does the title refer to contraception? Or one of this sort-of comedy's three leads? It's a toss-up; everyone involved is just so irritating.

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.
