Writer-director J.C. Khoury has sensibility and a refreshing amount of sense, too.
December 15, 2011
While their story is feather-light, Khoury and his actors have each type down perfectly.

December 14, 2011
A surprising delight from start to finish, this is one rom-com with serious, and very funny, nerve.
December 13, 2011
What makes Khoury's film work-at least until its cop-out ending -- is the consistency of Fred's loathsomeness.
August 17, 2011
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.
June 15, 2011
A recognizably human rom-com, reflective of the realities of the twenty- and even early-thirtysomething dating scene, in which people mean well but often find their attempts at monogamy tested in unexpected ways.

Writer/director J. C. Khoury's debut feature, "The Pill," is the model of independent efficiency. It's a dose worth taking.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.5/10
December 16, 2011
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
December 15, 2011
This might be more entertaining if any of the three main characters were at all likable.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 13, 2011
The film's loses its appeal once we leave its original premise and its main female character's strangeness begins to look like mere naiveté.
