Movie Info

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. Determined not to become a father, Fred spends the day with Mindy under the guise of pursuing a serious relationship to make sure she takes both doses (taken 12 hours apart) of the morning-after pill. The result is an all-day adventure filled with socially awkward situations and untimely roadblocks as Fred 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. -- (C) Official Site

Audience Reviews for The Pill

  • Feb 26, 2016
    The characters were either deplorable or annoying to the point of excess. The central premise could have led to some really cute comedy, or at least something funny. This was dry, disgusting, and lame.

    It has an exceptionally strong opening as well as a charming, well-filmed ending. The film also showcases quite believable performances from its leading actors as well as some hilarious and awkward moments. However, despite its accomplishment as an intimately filmed comedy, it suffers from a weak middle in which the director struggles to keep our interest in the plot and in which The Pill unfortunately drags and bores. The film is unable to keep interesting or exciting until it redeems itself in its final five minutes.
