I am truly appreciative of how critics and bloggers have, for the most part, made an effort not to spoil the twists of this movie. I don't know how to describe it actually without giving anything away. All I will say is that it starts out one thing and ends up as another and you won't glean anything by watching the trailers & tv spots. This is Soderbergh doing DePalma doing Hitchcock. Rooney Mara will knock your socks off and both Catherine Zeta Jones and Jude Law haven't had parts this juicy in a long time. Definitely worthy of your time and the price of admission.

It was a very powerful and serious movie. Everyone should see it, except for children under the age of 13, in my opinion.There were surprises in the movie which kept me interested.

I was looking for a thriller to jolt me out of my melancholy mood. This movie made me even more depressed because it it is a dark, slow movie. I didn't care much about the characters, nor about the twist at the end, which was interesting, but -- yawn. I would wait until you could stream it at home. Worth a rental, but not going out for.

If I had read the reviews before we went to the show I probably wouldn't have gone. My husband and i both thought the first half was boring but OMG when I finally figuered out the plot, several times actually gasping, I thought the show was actually good.Katherine Zeta Jones played a different role than I've ever seen her play before. Jude Law was fantastic and Channing Tatum looked good and his wife had a great role.
Depression is a horrible sickness and at first I thought I don't want to see this but I really did enjoy the final outcome and glad we went.

I am telling you now that this movie will be on my top 10 movies of the year. This movie is incredible. This whole review I’m basically just going to praise this movie so yeah if you were wondering if I liked this movie you should know from the title. I have no idea how Soderbergh does it but he makes a potentially very boring movie and makes it exciting as hell and I have loved every one of his movies so far. Rooney Mara is perfect in this movie and I can’t wait to see what she does next. Jude law is also very good and believable as a psychiatrist. Catherine zeta-Jones is fine . Channing Tatum has the smallest role and he’s good for the brief screen time he has. this movie has so many twists and turns it's really gripping and will ahve you on the edge of your seat. this movie is brilliantly shot and edited. I mean there were some shots it took me a second to realize what i was looking at so it's nice to see directors be risky and actaually try something new. i give SIDE EFFECTS a 10!
