Critic Reviews of "The Pill"New York PostDecember 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.New York TimesDecember 15, 2011
This might be more entertaining if any of the three main characters were at all likable.New York Daily NewsDecember 15, 2011
While their story is feather-light, Khoury and his actors have each type down perfectly.Village VoiceDecember 13, 2011
What makes Khoury's film work-at least until its cop-out ending -- is the consistency of Fred's loathsomeness.VarietyAugust 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.Orlando WeeklyJanuary 04, 2012
Writer-director J.C. Khoury has sensibility and a refreshing amount of sense, too.Film Journal InternationalDecember 14, 2011
A surprising delight from start to finish, this is one rom-com with serious, and very funny, nerve.Slant MagazineDecember 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.Shockya.comJune 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.Daily Film FixJune 14, 2011
Writer/director J. C. Khoury's debut feature, "The Pill," is the model of independent efficiency. It's a dose worth taking.
