Hello everyone your pal the cupid critic here to tell you about why you should use a condom, you won't make a shitty love story like this one.
The film is about Fred being worried that he has gotten the free-spirited Mindy pregnant after an unprotected one-night stand, Fred feigns romantic interest and sticks by her side for twelve hours to make sure she takes both doses of the morning-after pill.
If this film any intentional goals of being something good, it fails cause this is most uneventful and boring love story. It's not even that funny. Which makes it harder to sit through. The characters I don't remember and I just finished watching it this second. Only Fred the dumbass who is unsuccesful at putting on a condom and thus you have your very boring and uneventful love story.
The story is not interesting if anything it feels forced upon. They do this for the sake of the plot, which contemplates to this and this. The movie convenience and plot device after another, this movie didn't need to happen, I mean it was so dang boring I need to listen to my love songs to stay awake.
The direction is pretty okay, J.C Khoury does a fine job with shot but fails in getting good performances out of his actors. They all look like rejects for a soap opera.
None of the elements in a good film are present, is J.C Khpoury's shots good? yes, but that doesn't make the film any less boring, tedious, stupid and uneventful. I'm giving THE PILL a half out of five.
I've seen a lot reviewers who are against what they call a "boring" or "non-climactic" ending. For me, the ending was real. It was raw. There was no large effort made to convince the audience of some mystical
outcome. And I love that.
