About the Movie

When Fred (Noah Bean) and Mindy (Rachel Boston) drink themselves into a booze-fueled night of passion, things get complicated the next morning when she informs him that she's not on birth control, and for some reason isn't too concerned. Determined not to become a father, Fred spends the day with Mindy 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 in this modern take on the classic screwball comedy. Winning numerous best film and acting awards on the festival circuit, and featuring breakout performances from the two leads, this charming indie romantic comedy examines the immediate ramifications of casual dating in a poignantly funny, fresh, and very honest fashion.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: This might be more entertaining if any of the three main characters were at all likable. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Dec 15, 2011

Fresh: 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. – Ronnie Scheib, Variety, Aug 17, 2011

Fresh: What makes Khoury's film work-at least until its cop-out ending -- is the consistency of Fred's loathsomeness. – Andrew Schenker, Village Voice, Dec 13, 2011

Fresh: While their story is feather-light, Khoury and his actors have each type down perfectly. – Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News, Dec 15, 2011

please no... please no...

Is this what our society is coming to? Why do companies promote this kind of trash that some people are too ignorant to understand? The Pill alone is devastating to one's body, and the abuse of sexuality in this movie is just untolerable. This is my opinion on what of a fail movie this is, and all others like it. Please make the right choice.


this is possibly the worst movie plot of all time.

Most Honest Romantic Comedy in Ages

I saw this movie when it won the Audience Award at the Gen Art Film Festival, and it is incredible. It's hands-down the most honest, charming and real romantic comedy that I've seen in a long time. Script feels like old-school Woody Allen. And keep an eye out for the two leads, these actors are going places.
