The Morning-After Pill Gets a Movie...

This is the sad state of affairs in our culture. The morning-after pill now has a movie which centers around a one-night stand and the resulting issues. The nonchalant attitude about the morning-after pill is a given in the trailer as is having a one-night stand. Sad.

Here is the description from the New York Times review of it:
Fred (Noah Bean) has unprotected sex with Mindy (Rachel Boston), an unstable young woman whom he has just met, and he spends the rest of the film trying to make sure she takes the morning-after pill (which in this case is two pills, taken 12 hours apart).
Lying, cheating, morning-after pill dilemma, a one-night stand - and they make a "romantic comedy" out of it?
